“Lovely lunch by the river.”

I have visited this cafe on many occasions for lunch and it always produces first class food. They have a good selection of gluten free options and the food always tastes freshly made. The staff are friendly but efficient, even at busy times. The location, by the river is lovely, with tables outside on the terrace if you want to sit and look at the river. Last time we were there, Vic Reeves and his family were eating.

Lovely setting by a river, can eat inside or out. We just had a sandwich, which was very generous with a salad, great value.I think they should think about getting a licence for alcohol, I personally would have loved a lager or a cider as it was so hot.

If you are in the area of Backbarrow or Lakeside this venue is well worth considering as a lunch stop.The quality of the food and the attentive service provided by the staff is second to none. Don't expect reheated frozen food here as most of the menue is freshly prepared and much of it sourced locally. Enjoy!

Visited here when we were at the Motor Museum. It's on the same site. Food was very tasty and really very cheap. Nice atmosphere and excellent views of the river from the terrace.

What a discovery! Hidden away behind the lakeside motor museum this cafe is a real gem. We found it on a visit to museum and have been back again! The menu is not too big but with enough choice and we all ate something different, each meal was really good. It's a popular choice with others as on each visit it was reasonably busy and we got the impression that they were not first timers.
