“Honest, Unpretentious, Quality”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

Three words that describe Daisies Café.
Looking around Ambleside on a Sunday morning, you won't find many places open to serve breakfast before 10 a.m. By which time most serious walkers will be on the fells! Looking at the pictures on the walls at Daisies tells you the owners are serious outdoor types (very serious!). So naturally they open early and serve good, filling, fuel for a day out, on the fells!
You won't find bistro food or nouvelle cuisine here, but what you will find is well cooked, traditional, simple fare served by friendly staff with ample portion sizes.
The furniture may be plain bare pine, Daisies doesn't pretend to be anything it's not, but it does what it does and what it does is serve the best darn food in Ambleside!

“Best all day Breakfast”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Just spent a week in the Lake District and had to go and have a breakfast at our favourite place in Ambleside. The food is always excellent and it is service with a smile. It is nearly always busy regardless of the weather, however if there are no tables you can wait and one soon becomes available.

“Fantastic start to the day”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

Discovered Daisy's close to our cottage on our first evening of our 3 night stay in Ambleside. Went there for breakfast on our first morning and never deviated for the next 2 mornings. Both the 8 and 10 item cooked breakfasts are an excellent size. Great ingredients, well cooked and promptly served.

This is a lovely establishment. The patron is very warm and welcoming. Can't recommend highly enough. A great breakfast at great value for money.

“The best start to any day!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2012 via mobile

We are leaving Ambleside today after a fantastic weekend.
So as a goodbye present we thought we would indulge again ( we have had 3 days of eating and eating! And walking of course! )
So into Daisy's we went after reading the reviews.
Lovely clean cafe, nice atmosphere of people contently eating and we sat down.
We ordered our breakfast I had the 8 and my boyfriend had the full monty.
And had very good quality coffee too.
Amazing breakfast.
We like our food to be a high quality, fresh, not oily, and full of flavour and this is what we had.
No fat swirling on my plate even if I did have fried eggs, bacon, mushrooms!
The toast was homemade at local bakery, and meat prob local too!!!
Thankyou Daisy's for making my last morning filling and happy!
Can't wait to come back again.
