It was our first visit to hawes, we decided to call in for breakfast which was fantastic and a good price aswell, we decided to sit inside as the weather was poor but the staff there looked after us and couldn't be more helpful.
As the food was that good we decided to go back for lunch, which was equally as good, it's good to have some home cooked food unlike other places. I would recommend the quiche if it's on.
I would defiantly recommend visiting as it will not disappoint, and I will definately call again next time I'm in hawes.

We nearly left straightaway when the waitress didn't even turn round as we entered the almost empty cafe. The service continued underwhelming but the quiche and salad was very tasty. However the all day breakfast was overcooked, the orange juice very ordinary and the coffee positively unpleasant.
Other customers entering after us were also surprised by the unfriendly staff and we exchanged puzzled glances. I do hope this was just an 'off' day, but I fear not.

. On the positive side, our sandwiches were very good; fresh and tasty. Like a previous reviewer, we sat outside and found the service slow. We would certainly visit the Bay Tree again and would recommend it, but maybe not if people are in a rush!

Hawes is a lovely little with village in Wensleydale with lots of cafes, pubs & restaurants.

The Bay Tree Cafe is fairly small, but offers some really nice home cooked food and at quite reasonable prices.

The selection of soups on offer is simply amazing.

When or where can you EVER choose between six or seven different soups?

It just doesn't happen!! And they ALL looked delicious.

There was also an amazing display of home made cakes. Again - very very tempting.

If you 're in Hawes, Give it a try.....

You almost certainly won't be disappointed.

What a find this was! A lovely small cafe with a choice of 7 home-made soups and a great selection of home-made cakes - as well as many other things on their good value for money menu. The cakes were all excellent and are baked locally by the mother of one the person who served us. We enjoyed the coffee cake and victoria sandwich cake and we also had the lemon scone with lemon curd and cream - all deliciou!!. The coffee that came with these was excellent too. Great to find such a lovely cafe in Hawes.
