“Cracking place.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We love it here. Attached to Mitchells Auction rooms. Try a coffee, cake, panini etc on a Wednesday afternoon, then wander round the sale room to see what is for auction on Thursday.
Free Wifi available while you sup a drink or meet friends. Excellent.

“Ditch the diet!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I have had everything from coffees to cakes to meals in this gorgeous coffee shop and I have never failed to be impressed. The service is exemplary and the guys always have a smile and nice word to say. The decor is classy and the cakes are divine!! If you like them on Facebook you also get regular pics of the daily specials which are guaranteed to make your mouth water!
Love it!

Amazing review - thank you so much! We are so pleased you that enjoy VeeVa! so much and that you also follow us on Facebook. We go to great effort to keep our page updated and to try and stay ahead of the game...we also love communicating with all our customers (new and old) and keeping everyone as excited about our new products/menus as we are.
We don't blame you when you say 'ditch the diet' as we struggle with this ourselves...since working at VeeVa! I think it's safe to say that every single one of us have gone up a size or two!
Thank you again for praising us on all aspects - if you could let us know what we need to do to make your review a 5* one rather than a 4* though please get back to us!

Thank you so much for your rave review! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit to VeeVa! so much. It is always so lovely to get a response from our customers (especially one that is so positive) so we really appreciate you taking the time to post this.

Please do keep popping in and seeing our menu updates and trying other barista specialties that we may have to offer. One of our biggest menu overhauls is around summer time and we have already started making changes with our cakes and weekly specials.

Thank you again for such a glowing review, we look forward to seeing yourself and your boyfriend again soon.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. We love your comment "only go if you can withstand temptation" as we sometimes find this hard ourselves! We pride ourselves on our wide variety of cakes and other sweet treats and we update these on a regular basis (for example, right now we are currently serving afternoon tea and that also includes a selection of our homemade cakes and chocolate mousses). We have also just started our Easter cake menu that features the usual seasonal favourites (with the VeeVa! twist of course) and we will be changing our menus (both food and drink) for the Summer months too so keep popping in to see what we can tempt you with next!

“Such a pleasure”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

This coffee shop is a real benefit to Cockermouth it is clean friendly with the most amazing scones I have tasted in a long time as is the coffee. We all need to support Cockermouth at the moment and VeeVa is a great place to meet up with friends for coffee lunch or both.

Thank you so much for say that we are a benefit to Cockermouth. Since opening we have always aimed to help the town and promote support for local businesses rather hinder them. We regularly work alongside Sainsbury's, which is conveniently located opposite us, and liaise with the other businesses in town. It's true that we are all in competition with each other but the popularity of the shops in town is what brings custom to everyone and this is especially important now the Summer months are on their way.

We are so pleased that you enjoy your visits to our shop and our Manager, Gareth, is especially chuffed that you enjoy his scones so much - many customers don't believe that he actually makes them!

Thank you again for your kind words and we hope to see you again soon.
