What a gem of a little cafe! We - a group of four - went for some refreshments after looking round the Priory for a couple of hours.

A perennial visitor to Cartmel, I always have a nice coffee and cake here. I think I'd get withdrawal symptoms if I didn't!

After a long journey we were happy to find somewhere still serving food mid-afternoon. Although the service was not particularly friendly and was quite slow despite the cafe not being full, the food was brilliant and excellent value for money. Would return for another toasted BLT!
