“Great place to watch the world ... and his dog go by”

Always a favourite when in Ambleside. If you don't want generic tea and coffee head for Cafe Treff and their cakes are glorious too!

“Great fresh food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Amazing fresh food, my bacon and brie toasted sandwich was divine and my sons milk shake tasted of actual strawberrys. Great food, great service, great place.

“Good family cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Went here a couple of time with the family. Great selection of cakes and a really good range of drinks for the kids and an even better range of coffee for the adults. Highly recommend after a good walk.

“Switzerland to the Lakes...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Cafe Treff is cosy, and is decorated with Swiss posters that add to the feeling of Switzerland. The cakes are scrumptious, and lunches are lovely to have- I like the jacket potatoes best! They have a selection of coffees around the world, and also a fine collection of loose leaf teas. The Mango Tango is my favorite smoothie for Summer. In Winter, a Hot Chocolate Snowball is brilliant, the perfect balance of white chocolate and coconut. I have been to Cafe Treff for a few years now, and will be returning soon!
