“Nice iced mocha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

I had a lovely iced mocha, very cooling on a hot day and average price for the size. Rather give my money to a small business than a huge corporation

“Only so so ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Came here for a quick refreshment and found the staff member to be quiet rude ordered a smoothie and a soft drink but had to ask for glass and also for her to open the soft drink for me as it was capped and u needed to use a bottle opener!!!! I got a strange look when I requested this.....nice cosy feel to the cafe but just a pity the staff member wasn't efficient and friendly.

hello there,i can only apologize for the member of staff that served you that day,and if that was me, i too would have felt a little annoyed, i am most surprised by this because we are always been praised on our friendly manner,i must say though i think your overall rating was a little over the top.... still all i can do is apologize.

“Light break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

First of all I ordered the flapjack and it was very sticky and it fell apart as soon as I picked it up it fell apart. The staff were courteous.The tables had been clean but there was some kind of cards on every table containing some difficult questions. But they were extremely dirty. Overall I enjoyed this little break.

“Fantastic coffee house the the English Lakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Four of us found this place by chance at the weekend. Its a quirky, small establishment but with a lovely character to it and a good atmosphere. The coffee we had (3 capuccinos and a flat white) was the best we've had for ages, far better than we have had from any of the multiple coffee chains that have colonised the town centres.

Service was prompt and very friendly. The range of drinks avaialbel was impressive and the cakes looked very tempting, but we managed to resist.

Will recommend anyone to eschew the hordes of Ambleside and Bowness and carry on for 15 miles north of Windermere - slower pace, fewer tourists yet fabulous scenery.
