Our cafe is located to the behind our bakery shop, and is accessed down the side of our building (there is no longer access through the shop). At busy times we have operate a queing system which is located under the lean to, so you can stay warm and dry in our lovely Lake Distict climate.

Unfortunately we do not take reservations for the cafe.

With tables in the window to watch the world go by, by the fire to warm up in winter, bench seating for big groups and cosy corners for more intimate dining while our courtyard provides a lovely location to relax whether it’s hot or cold (blankets are on hand just ask).
