My husband & I called into the cafe for hot drinks, We were met by a very pleasant young lady who took our order and prepared our drinks, We sat in the window looking out over Windermere & the mountains in the distance, sipping our cappuccino & hot chocolate, what a fabulous view,
Only one niggle we prefer proper cups not paper ones

After a wonderful weekend away we were about to finish our trip with a ferry ride across Lake Windemere. In good spirits we headed to the Bluebird Cafe to grab a quick coffee and enjoy the view whilst we waited for the ferry to arrive. When arriving in the cafe we were met with sour faces and by far the worst customer service we have ever experienced! Without so much as a hello, a smile or any eye contact whatsoever we ordered our drinks. We would not have felt more unwelcome. Once the drinks were ready they were thrown at us with such force that the coffee spilt on the side of the counter. No apology was given, not even an acknowledgement. The atmosphere was so uninviting and sour that we decided to leave and sit outside in the cold rather than find a table in the cafe.

Windemere is a fabulous place filled with wonderful sites and people but I would strongly reccomend for you to STAY AWAY from this cafe and the staff that work there if you would like to keep your experience here a positive one!

Two VERY unsatisfied and quite horrified customers.
