We called here after trying a couple of other cafes in Keswick and finding that they had sold out of scones - at 3pm! We were told at the Wild Strawberry that they had no scones left either but, not to worry, there were some in the oven!
We ordered a pot of tea while we were waiting. Despite the fact that they were extremely busy, this was brought out very quickly by the charming waitress who told us that she would give us a top up if we needed one whilst we were waiting for the scones.
The scones, when they arrived were, indeed, hot and straight from the oven and I can honestly say that we have never had better. We had jam and clotted cream with them and at £2.50 they were a pound cheaper than those advertised (but not available) in the other cafes. Highly recommended!
Whilst we were waiting, the couple on the next table had a delicious looking afternoon tea brought to them on a large three tiered serving plate. They told us that they had had one before and so were sharing this one as it really was huge! The cakes looked mouth watering and were a really good selection and the sandwiches were generously filled. So, next time we go......!
