“Nice cafe - chaotic service”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Chosen because so many places in Ambleside are closed on Mondays, we weren't disappointed in lunch here. The tomato and fennel soup was very tasty as was the roll and sausage. The service is chaotic, however. Every order that comes out of the kitchen wanders around the ten or so tables looking for a home. Tip: don't order hot drinks until your food arrives. I see from other reviewers that the current owners are retiring. The new ones will want to put their mark on this busy little cafe. They should start with table numbers and installing dryers in the toilets rather than having towels (yeuch!).

“our last visit before new owners take over”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Firstly we would like to wish Clive & his wife a long & happy retirement.
We have been going to Daisys Café regularly on our frequent visits to the Lake District & have been made more than welcome with our dog Amber on every single visit .
As for the food...Breakfast or Lunch in a word Excellent !!!
Thankyou for your friendly & efficient service on every occasion.
Lets hope the new owners can continue to make Daisys one of Amblesides top places for a bite to eat.
We will be back in September to see what changes(Hopefully none) have been made.

“Terrific breakfast”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Called in this week with my wife for breakfast. They happily accepted our Border Terrier to join us too.
What a breakfast!! You can choose any number of items from the menu, and tailor your breakfast. The portions are large, and consist of well good good local produce.
I would highly recommend you try here.
