If you like cake then you're in for a treat! Superb staff plus the biggest cakes ever seen make for a rather lovely afternoon treat! Just make sure you have time after for a lie down! Delicious freshly made cakes and really welcoming staff....thank goodness I don't live nearer otherwise I would be ten times the size!

Had a little trip to Hawkshead while on holiday in the Lake District and just fancied a cup of tea and slice of cake. We didn't need to look any further when we caught a glimpse of the gigantic cakes in the window!
We managed to get a table and had a slice of chocolate cake and a slice of raspberry cream sponge, both we're amazing but the cream sponge was so good we popped in the next day just to get a slice to take away! Lovely! Price of the huge slices was very reasonable too.

Visited this Cafe as we had seen it on trip advisor.
Really pleasant staff.
We had soup which was very tasty and the open seafood sandwich that was fantastic.
We also had coffee and the fabulous cakes.
Needed a doggy bag for the rest of the cake we couldn't finish which the staff were happy to supply.
Really recommended on a cold rainy day.

Yum, yum, yum, yum..... oh dear I feel sick! Perhaps the full English breakfast 2 hours before was not a good idea! An empty stomach is a much better idea. Really the photograph does not do justice to the size of this slice.Think side of a house. We will return when next in Hawkshead.
