Best coffee on the lake 100%! Folk is a favourite of ours in The Lake District. Great coffee, food, cakes and service!

Stopped in for a snack and coffee, ended up having a pork pie and a beer 😂. Lovely little cafe, friendly staff and nice hot and cold drinks and food.

We walked around Windermere and didn’t see any places we wanted to eat in. But then we came across Folk and we’re so glad we did. We sat outside momentarily whilst the lovely couple running it did everything they could to get us inside (it was slightly chilly out), ten minutes later we were sat in the warm ordering delicious breakfast rolls.

I have a bit of a thing for bread, and they use toasted ciabatta rolls which were so nice I had to ask where they were from and was told they use a local bakery about 15minutes away.

After eating here, I drove to the bakery, called ‘More? The Artisan Bakery’ in Staveley to buy some of the rolls and ended up getting a bit carried away in there too.

Lovely atmosphere, great quality food. I would definitely come back here again when I visit the area next.

Also, given Covid times the staff here took the cleaning very seriously. And were very hot on sanitising tables etc. Something I wish I saw more of from other places.

Amazing cafe, really homely, amazing staff. The breakfast sandwiches were great and would highly recommend. The staff made our dogs welcome with bacon bits and water.

Stopped for a quick coffee with my dog and sat outside. Very good coffee and lovely cheerful staff. Slightly tucked away so just look for the signs leading you there!
