Every time we visit Arnside we usually pop in this cafe. A pot a tea and a scone is good value for money. You will also possibly find yourself buying something in the shop as well! Recommend it.

Thank you for your lovely comments. We have chosen to have a limited menu so that we can prepare everything from fresh. Mrs Posh does the home baking, who knew that GCSE in Domestic Science would be so useful!
