“Delightful & tasty lunch”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

I can't understand the negative reviews as they bear no relation to this high quality establishment. We came in for a coffee but decided to have lunch and were not disappointed. We had a Cumberland sausage baguette and a pulled pork & apple sauce one. They come cut in two so we had half each. They were utterly delicious and the Cumberland sausage was the best I have tasted. The lemon slice, tea & coffee were excellent too. My wife likes her coffee on the hotter side and the owner was only too happy to make another - even though we had let it get cold!
There's a nice gift section & very clean toilets through the back too.
Heidi's is well worth a visit & one of the delights of Grasmere. You will not be disappointed - go for the Cumberland - it's the greatest!

“'What a let down'”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Me and my family decided to try a different cafe in Grasmere and came across Heidi's Cafe. It was lovely inside. Lot's of trinkets to look at. We then waited 15 minutes to be served. The cafe wasn't busy. They got our order mixed up and we had to send the food back. Then when we came to pay they had left items off the bill. I was shocked at the price to! It came to £24 for 2 bacon sandwiches, a hog roast sandwich, 2 teas and a hot chocolate. Very over priced. It's such a shame because it's lovely inside. I won't be in a hurry to go back.

We decided we would drive through to Grasmere on our way home. We parked our car in the garden centre car park and headed into the centre of the village

We decided to pop into Heidi's because we noticed they did sandwiches to take away and they had a HUGE selection of jars. We were greeted by a friendly smile and hello! We looked at the jars and we noticed there was a deal on if you buy 3 jars. We selected our 3 and made our way over to the counter to decide what we wanted for our brunch! There was a nice selection of sandwiches available that had been freshly made up that morning, we decided to go for a cheese & ham baguette and a tuna mayo baguette.

The lady took our payment and we headed off back to the car. We sat in the car as it was starting to rain quite heavily! We took a bite out of our baguettes and looked at each other, they were so delicious!

Will be back again soon!

“Poor takeaway food”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We have been using Heidi's to purchase sandwiches and cake during our cycling trips and always found the quality to be excellent. However this year things have changed. The sandwich filing options were much reduced and the bread of poor quality. All in all very tasteless. The cakes appear to be unchanged but something seems to have changed for the worse at this place. I hope it can be put right soon as I fear this business will suffer.
