Popped in here on the spur of the moment and had a lovely breakfast. One full English - the other poached eggs on brown toast. Very nice with coffee and tea to follow. Good value for nice food.

Excellent quality food including black pudding. Few too many mushrooms left no room for another sausage. But I'll be back👍🏾

Another excellent visit to Poppies. I can't really understand why anyone would go anywhere else in Ulverston for lunch such is the high quality on offer here. We're tried Brunch, Lunch, Cakes, Hot Drinks & Cold Drinks and every time the quality has been superb, as has the service.

We stopped here for lunch and had a Sweet Chilli Chicken and BBQ Chicken Deli Baked Wrap. They were both really well cooked and very tasty. Also they were reasonably priced at £5.95 each.

We decided to try this cafe for brunch following our recent move to Ulverston. It was excellent! We had a traditional English breakfast and coffee which far exceeded expectations. The service was good and the staff friendly. We anticipate being regular visitors.

English cuisine can be heavy and bland unless you grew up here. Not so here. Great choices. Healthy. Tasty. "Amy" the proprietor is one of those solid bright people that you wish would be your cook always. The salads have wonderful fresh additions. This is worth traveling from a distance to find this kind of nourishment.
