We visited Bakewell last Saturday and came upon the Upstairs Café. The entrance is not inspiring, but the café is quite delightful. Staff were very friendly, there was plenty of space between tables and there was a comfortable atmosphere about the place. The coffee was very good and we were able to have fresh cream with it, which is not... More

Always a good sign if a place is popular with the locals! Friendly prompt service, very good food and quite a range to choose from. We had breakfast - I had some fat free tea bread with hot chocolate which was very good and my husband had bacon & eggs on toast which he said was just right.

My partner and I popped in merely because of the gift shop aspect but decided to stay for a coffee. To some it can seem pricey but that entirely depends on your budget. We took the hot drink deal and got a bakewell and scone with our drinks, really lovely food, lovely drinks, speedy service and very polite staff. Would... More

Not knowing Bakewell very well and seeking a break from a frankly disappointing Food Festival we discovered The Upstairs Cafe and Gift Shop. We had a friendly welcome and chose the breakfast which was far from the usual greasy mess on a plate but a healthy choice of well cooked ingredients including some excellent poached eggs. A large pot of... More

We needed somewhere to eat for lunch on Bakewell on a very busy Saturday and stumbled upon this cafe by accident. We couldn't believe it wasn't totally packed. The food was great, the puddings even better. The staff were very friendly and couldn't have been more accommodating to our family with small children. Cute little shop too...an added bonus. Will...

Usually enjoy coming here. The food is nice and well presented and very reasonably priced. Today on ordering a hot drink I was asked 'are you sure you want that?' Well yes I wouldn't be ordering it if I didn't. Ordered the breakfast for the first time in here and let's just say we were both under whelmed when it... More

Usually call in one of the Bakewell pubs on Saturdays but prices are getting hiked up. This café is not one I have used 'till now. Just to say in a nut shell, it was clean, very friendly staff and the food was excellent!
