This is a modern building, rather shinier and more spartan than a traditional cafe. Being on the beach by the lake, I suppose it needs to be like this to cope with walkers, dogs, watersports folks and gravel from the beach. However, you don't look in, you look out... and the view over the lake is wonderful. There is a terrace with wind screens and an indoor seating area.
Service is brisk and cheerful, and quality of food is good. And if you are silly enough to jump in the lake on New Years Day, then a hot chocolate at the Bluebird is absolutely required to complete the uninstallation of your hangover.

Extremely accommodating with a large dog and nice to sit outside but sheltered from the elements with heaters around.
Food was delicious and varied - staff were again accommodating and very friendly - extremely clean (even with dogs!) - view was spectacular! Would absolutely unhesitantly recommend to everyone :) thank you x

A modern and clean cafe with a great view of Coniston Water. Great selection of snacks and drinks. They sell delicious freshly made sandwiches to order.

We visited the Bluebird twice during our recent stay in the Lakes, both times for breakfast. Beautiful food, perfectly cooked. Lovely coffee too. Staff were great and very patient, especially as the second time as there were 13 of us, all with dogs! The location is fabulous, will definitely make a point of returning next time we visit.

If you are in Coniston make sure you visit the Bluebird cafe. With it's contemporary architecture, lakeside location and great tasting coffee it was our favourite place to relax. However the staff made it extra special: they were all so friendly, helpful, and efficient. A special thanks goes to the lovely guy who escorted my elderly dad to a table whilst I went to park the car - you are a star!
