We visited here a couple times on our recent holiday and it's a wonderful to stop for a coffee and cake (very nice cakes)!!
The added bonus with this coffee shop is how dog friendly they are!! It is really nice to see!
All the staff are really helpful and provide great service.
Many thanks for a lovely visit and the tasty cake!

This cafe is very deceptive, from the outside it looks like a small box but inside there are steps up to a much larger area that offers sofas to relax in, great magazines, local artwork and chilled music playing, The manager, Kerry, is very friendly and local. They offer great tasting coffee and a wide arrange of snacks and light meals at extremely good value, i think the coffee may be the cheapest in Windermere. I highly recommend this coffee shop, don't be put off by it looking as though it's a kiosk in a park, it a tardis and a great place to enjoy a cuppa.

The latte I had was about on par with Costa coffee - nothing special. The espresso was burned, the milk scalded, pretty much what you expect from someone who has not been trained to use an espresso machine properly. However, the staff was extremely friendly and the wide selection of baked good all looked delicious. There is free wifi and plenty of comfortable seating. In a test with only 1 other person in the shop the broadband measured 12 down and 1 up, well above typical free wifi. If you want a place to relax, read a book, or do some work on your laptop this is your place. If you want a perfectly pulled shot of espresso with milk steamed to drinking temperature, look elsewhere.

Four of us Walking in Windermere looking for a place to stop and have a drink. Saw Coffee Bar 7 tucked away in a corner. Had a table free and we went for it.Glad we did..staff were friendly. The Hot chocolate and marshmallow and extra marshmallow on the side made my friends day!!
Had a cream tea...shared the scone! When I got the bill for the four of us..less than £15. Check it out if you are in the Lakes.

After having experienced a number of poor value restaurants around the area, this little find was like a breath of fresh air. A bit quirky, but well worth a try - really friendly, helpful staff, tasty food giving excellent value for money. We told them so when we left - not something we tend to do.
