“Gluten free food as wonderful as any meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We have visited Greens on many occasions and always amazed at the variety of food suitable for my wife who is glute intolerant. Having made your selection, the food is as fine as any you will find anywhere whether gluten free or not, in fact the gluten free range is so tasty, I often select from this menu myself. For fantastic home cooked food that nearly everyone can eat, you will find no better location.

Cosy cafe on a quiet side street in Grasmere, serving an excellent selection of comforting snacks and meals, including amazing vegan sausage rolls and brownies!

“Fantastic vegetarian breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

A very nice friendly place to eat with a good selection of choices for vegetarians which is not always to be found. The breakfast was lovely and great value - you get a lot!! Good service and a nice relaxing place to eat. The non vegetarian breakfast was apparently good as well and again, great value. But, if you are a vegetarian (or vegan) and wanting somewhere to eat in Grasmere, try this first.

“Lovely warming food”

Really nice food here . Had the toad out of the hole, homemade Yorkshire pud, two delicious Cumbrian sausages on a pile of mash with fresh cooked veg ( the red cabbage was wonderfully flavoursome ) not too priced either .

“Greatness at Greens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Standing outisde her ein the pouring rain we decided on going in for lunch, the outisde board menu was also a big enticement. The staff could smile a little more though, but they're not rude so all is good, plus all is very prompt. I chose the Quesadilla which was superb, served with a little salad garnish and nachos with dips. The menu here is great, catering for everybody without being too exhausting. The cakes looked divine so I took away a piece of carrot cake (parking was nearly up, plus I was full), it was scrummy, very moist, made with sultanas not wicked walnuts! My partner took away a cumberland sos roll, which was very nice, not like shop bought rubbish that sticks to the roof of your mouth! The owner/cook was very friendly and helpful. Nicely set and laid out. Would like to go back and try of an evening.
