Lovely spot for hot chocolate & cake! Stopped here after reading good reviews & it didn’t disappoint. Visited with my partner and we had paninis, hot drinks & cake, great choice of gluten/vegan cakes.

This cafe is great. Fab, friendly staff and a wide menu. The coffee is good and they're always open early (a bit of a rarity in Keswick). Outside seating perfect for people watching.

Dropped in for a quick coffee and after seeing the excellent food on offer stayed for lunch. Could have happily eaten anything off the menu from soup, pies, large sausage rolls, jacket potatoes, etc. Will go again when next in Keswick.
