Lunch here was lovely. Staff were great. It was great to be able to eat outside in the sun overlooking Derwent Water. Cafes with this view are rare and the food & service was super.

Great location, perfect for the return trip down Catbells with a wonderful lake-front position.
The building itself is a wonderfully restored piece, and when it's not raining there's a good outdoor seating area.
The secluded location means this place is fairly quiet through the day, so the atmosphere is nice and chilled.
The food and drink are good, although we found that the staff weren't great with menu understanding for dairy allergies.
Would definitely make a return visit however.

We stopped at Dandelion cafe for lunch having made he walk round from Keswick to Portiscale. The outdoor setting area is set in lovely gardens with views over Derwentwater. The food was very reasonably priced with a good selection of sandwiches, paninis and wraps. Ideal for a lunch spot when visiting the area.

An excellent and varied lunch menu, very pleasant and efficient service (despite the large number of our group) and an outstanding situation with fantastic views over Derwentwater and the surrounding fells. Lovely gardens too.
