Located on a bustling pedestrian street in the heart of Keswick, close to the busy market square and shores of Lake Derwentwater, Cafe Bar 26 is a relaxed Mediterranean style cafe bistro by day and a vibrant wine and cocktail bar in the evening with a unique atmosphere. Feeling peckish? We serve brunch and tapas Tuesday - Saturday 9.00am - 4.00pm. We also serve great illy coffee, interesting wines, continental beers, cocktails and champagne all day long! Perfect after a day on the fells or simply a stroll around the shops. There is also open mic night every Wednesday from 9.00pm. We are closed Mondays.

Just returned home from another visit to Cafe Bar 26. Coffee superb as ever! It is so important to know that coffee is consistently good whenever we visit!

Great location just up from the Lake. We had eaten here previously (tapas) but it seems now to not serve food on an evening or if it did it wasn't obviously advertised. Nice setting and friendly barmaid; it's a shame that the sexist sign behind...More
