Hawkshead is quite an expensive village to eat. Naturally Hawkshead Cafe is more reasonably priced. Friendly, efficient staff and food of a reasonable quality. Did not try any of the large variety of cakes but they looked great, including gluten free options.

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.

Most of the 'tea-rooms' here are a rip off. This one wasn't too bad but nothing to rave about. Half-decent shop to look around attached.

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.

The only place open early one Sunday morning when we were out with the kids. Had cake and coffee (the kids had juice, obviously). Hit the spot, tasty enough. Glad it was open!
