Daisy's is a fantastic spot for a breakfast of any size or combination or a coffee and cake. Take a seat and prepare for you taste buds to spring back into life...
Outside the kerb appeal isn't a wow but rest assured it hits all the high notes on your palate and the vibe inside is a cool outdoorsy type, all ages, all passions, all in the know about the delicious home cooking.
Our meal..The toast, fresh cut whole meal chunky bread, beans and fried egg was exactly what we wished for, and we sneaked a cheeky scone to share which was melt in the mouth.
It's a find..a hidden gem...and it's down side according to Holdworth's books lady, (where we headed to buy a funky map we had seen in Daisy's ).. was it wasn't open enough.
Apparently the owners, a family two generations of bakers and cooks...liked to see the beauty of the outdoors now and again. I respect them even more...go soon and saviour.

The decoration was interesting. The staff were friendly and polite. The food was tasty. The service was quick, but the toilet sink was too small. I could barely wash my hands in it. Overall it was a good lunch.

We visited Ambleside on something of a whim and decided to stay in this lovely town to have lunch. Daisy's was the first café we saw and we decided to give them a try. I'm so glad we did and would eat there again.

The menu has a lot of choice, the breakfasts, sandwiches and jacket potato fillings being of particular note. They also serve a very good beef burger. The quality of the food was also very good.

We also appreciated the friendly service. I look forward to another visit.

Just popped in randomly for lunchtime snack. Hot piping lovely toasties and great service. Reading the previous reviews I wish Clive and his wife a happy retirement. Thank you.

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!).
