We have been visiting Abraham's cafe for many years now on our regular trips to Keswick. The food is consistently excellent although we particularly enjoy the scones (look out for the speciality scone of the day on the blackboard) after a long walk.

We went to Abraham's Cafe for lunch. The organic, homemade breads were AMAZING! Definitely the best part of the meal. The "salmon salad" was basically salmon with the exact same amount of leaves that was on everyone's plate, so not the thing to go for...More

We went back to Abraham's tea room above George Fisher's outdoor shop last week on our latest trip to Keswick. We found a table under the skylights and took our seat. The table lay-out here in general is way too cramped. I realise the owners...More

Visited here over winter with family, including a young child, as my mother raves about the food - her favourite being the rarebit. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was swift. The food was tasty and plentiful, and I was assured that it...More

Hello Thanks for leaving a review. Sorry your sandwich wasn't quite what you were expecting, sounds like you got a bit more cheese than was required on your open sandwich, but the bread should definitely have been buttered. I've passed on your comments to the...More

Hi Caribean2, Many thanks for your questions. We don't do an actual afternoon tea, as such, I'm afraid but you could always make up, or ask for, a selection from our menu. Sadly, we're not set-up for vouchers, as the cafe... More
