We had breakfast here full English the food was superb and arrived freshly cooked. I believe this is a family run business which can be very proud of themselves the staff were friendly and the cafe immaculate 5 out of 5.

This isn't a complaint but they do serve hot soup hot. Everything that we had as a group of four was great and waiting for the soup to cool a bit was a pleasant experience.

Visited Helvellyan Country Kitchen following a walk around Ullswater and despite the really nice atmosphere of the cafe I found my food and the customer service to be a bit disappointing. I opted for the beef chilli wrap but found everything to be completely overpowered...More

We stopped off here for breakfast before heading off for a good walk and had the full English (large) and poached eggs on toast. Very tasty, very well priced, excellent portion sizes and now we’re ready for the day ahead. Fabulous

Lovely establishment which welcomes dogs and walkers. Good range of food for that much needed relaxation after morning or day on the fells. The full breakfast is enormous. Scones are home baked and good amount of jam and clotted cream. Staff are friendly and efficient....More

The menu can be adapted towards any diet requirements. I would suggest calling them in advance. Food is very good value and the homemade bread is delicious. The tea is very weak though.
