Reviewed 22 October 2012

Home made cakes, excellent coffee, very clean. This little cafe is located above the co-op in Chapel Stile and is run by local people. The staff are friendly, the food is good and the cake portions generous. Breakfast served until 1130 is a generous helping of traditional fare. Soup and a roll excellent on a cold day.
Prices are very reasonable compared to other eating places in the area e.g. Chesters and they don't get upset if your boots are a bit muddy and you are dripping rainwater.
Great little cafe.

Popped in mid-walk along the river. Had a banana and apricot loaf; with a toasted tea cake; cup of tea & a hot chocolate - excellent taste & just what we needed. Clientale slightly older and/or fellow walkers, but a great tea room tucked upstairs above the friendliest Co-Op you'll ever find!! Well worth popping in, if passing (but maybe not a special trip)...

Food was OK, but wouldn't bring me to visit again. Staff were very casually dressed and the place didn't have a professional feel to it.

Brambles is conveniently located along the Langdale Valley for the popular walking areas at the head of the valley. It is a great place for ramblers of all abilities and levels of enthusiasm. While the cafe itself (just above the Chapel Stile Co-op which stocks the essentials) is modest the service is friendly and efficient and the food hits the mark!
