Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food very nice more bistro than cafe style. Really well presented and beautifully cooked and tasty for the price didn't mind a bit of a wait for food as all cooked to order . Desserts were homemade but i didn't have any room will definitely...go back the breakfasts looked very nice also that we're being served . The only downside is space you probably best booking as it's so popular .More

Good lunch spot. Good for vegetarians & meat eaters both. Tasty food well presented. I had a mushroom rosti stack with grilled halloumi that came with broccoli on the side. Nice & tasty but the rosti was very greasy. Food was £11 per head.

Must be clear that the food is good as is the service: but it is far too cramped for comfort! Has always been quite tight as it's a small cafe, however the new owners (I presume) completely refurbished a couple of years ago with the...biggest and chunkiest chairs and tables possible! So to get through the staff are squeezing between people and there really is only a thigh's width between tables and between the backs of chairs, even when they are pulled right in. It makes me really hesitant to return, which is a shame. With much lighter style chairs and tables it would feel 100 times better.More

Phoned on the off chance we could get a table for 6, short notice. They managed to fit us in. Service was excellent by the two ladies at front of house. Food also excellent. Full English breakfast was faultless. The other meals ordered were also...excellent. My first time there, but definitely not my last. Great value for money too.More

I love to come here for breakfast with my friend for catch ups once in a while, and hands down, it's the best breakfast in Ulverston, there are others which are good, but poppies just tops it 😋 can't beat there full English. I also...came with my son for lunch, I am very fussy when it comes to steak, but I tried the steak and salad here, I was not disappointed, it was so tasty and flavourful, I'm craving it again, so I will be back soon as I can for another 😍 my son also loved his open sandwich with seafood, he said it was very tasty. The staff are always super friendly and smiley, very helpful and all round lovely. My favourite cafe.More

I called in advance to book breakfast for a group of 15 after hearing how good the food was. They kindly reserved two large tables for us which took up most of their seating area but staff were really accommodating, professional and helpful. The food...did not disappoint and won't find a better breakfast spot in the South of Cumbria.More

You've got to visit Poppies. The food is absolutely wonderful. There is always an excellent choice, especially given the small size of the place. We love it here and wish we could visit more often. Highly recommended.
