“Best place for lunch in Keswick”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We love this place, as locals we visit Keswick quite often and it is always a treat to have lunch in Treebys. The food is fabulous - I've never had a mediocre meal here but it is the staff who also make this place. Always cheerful and welcoming, nothing seems too much trouble. And the sweets... if you're on a diet - avert your eyes from the counter!!

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We have been visiting Keswick for many years but never eaten at this cafe until this last visit. Excellent lunch snack. We both had the open sandwich which were large. Great choice of sweets for anybody with a sweet tooth. Very helpful staff. Best entrance is in side street which saves walking through the shop and down a flight of steps. Will be visiting again.

“Very accommodating!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

My daughter and 3 month old grandson and I went to Treeby's expecting to sit outside as we had the baby in a pram. I went in to order and saw a table close to the counter and asked if we could come in with the pram. The waitress couldn't be more helpful. The baby slept soundly whilst my daughter and I enjoyed coffee, tea, a gorgeous cheese scone for me and a fabulously moist gluten free chocolate cake for my gluten intolerant daughter. We have enjoyed this coffee shop and its lovely food for years. So nice not to feel we are second class citizens just because we have a baby in a pram. I appreciate that you can't just expect to put a buggy/pram into a restaurant etc but it is nice to know that when there is space you aren't turned away. Number 1 eatery on my list.

“Tasty Treat”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Can be difficult to get a table for more than 4 but a short wait is usually sufficient and they do not seem to mind if you move chairs to accommodate (we were a party of 6). You order at the counter but are best to find a table first, although it is also well worth everyone looking at the cakes as there is a great selection and all look tempting. Good selection of drinks, hot and cold, as well as the excellent cakes. Portions were generous, but pricing does seem to be at upper end of scale. Lemon meringue pie was given a huge thumbs up, as was the orange and cranberry cake; fruit scone was good but at well over £2 (it is £2.25 and you get butter and a pot of jam but no option to forego at lower cost) it should be. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the visit and would certainly go again.

“best lemon meringue”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Not the most child-friendly as you are usually requested to fold down buggies, but they do provide baby chairs attachable to the seats and staff are very good with little ones, it's just a matter of limited space. It can be a little pricy but the cakes are the best in Keswick. Coffee and cake is what we usually come here for rather than lunch. I can recommend the lemon meringue pie, key lime cheesecake, tiffin, carrot cake… the list goes on. They have a different selection each time and so many look sublime that choosing one is always a challenge.
