After a long walk we decided to have lunch at this café. We had sandwiches on ciabatta bread and thought that they were very nice. Food and drink prices here are typical for the area. Service was fine. Recommended.

Next to the car park this is a great coffee stop. The selection of home made cakes and pastries are not for skimmers really excellent. This place is also dog friendly.

Stopped off for lunch here after cycling from kendal. Plenty of spaces to sit inside and outside. Staff were friendly, polite and helpful and there was plenty of choice on the menu. I would definitely come here again.....big thumbs up.

The area of the cafe is nothing special but very convenient when shopping. Have not had food here but the teas and coffees were good.
