I popped in for breakfast and ended up having cake... the selection was just too alluring. The Square Orange may destroy your diet but it's undoubtedly a treat for your tastebuds.

Visited the square orange twice although it's quickly tricky to get a seat at peak times it has a great atmosphere. Great service from the staff they couldn't be more helpful. Fantastic food too. My favourite place to visit in Keswick.

Busy little place, dog friendly & nice staff. We shared a pizza which had a lovely thin base, a little bit soggy & not much topping
