Perfectly sited cafe in delightful Buttermere. After coming down off the fells in the cold weather it was perfect for a hot cup of tea and homemade cake whilst waiting for the little bus to take us back to Keswick. On a warmer day their ice creams are out of this world - a large double cone was only £3.05 (I recommend the creamy vanilla one). Situated right by the bus stop with indoor and outdoor tables

Thank you for your great review, we are indeed right in the heart of the village and we are spoilt with all the great views out of every window. We are happy to hear that we offered you a warm welcome after coming down off the fells and that you enjoyed your tea and cake.
The English Lakes ice cream that we serve is amazing and I agree with your recommendation of the thick , creamy double Jersey vanilla.

We look forward to welcoming you back on a sunny day for you to sit and enjoy your ice cream outside maybe, we do have our own webcam on our website if you wish to check the weather in Buttermere before you set off.

A really lovely cafe I visited with my boyfriend we visited a few months ago. Was so nice especially coming in from the rain. The food was hot and tasty and they do a drink called butterbeer, a hot caramel and milk drink which is amazing!

The valley is so beautiful and we will be back to visit soon!

I visited this cafe several times while visiting family in cumbria after it was recommended by a friend, and it was lovely! Food was great especially a really nice flapjack with seeds and fruit on it. The girls were all so nice and looked after me and my nan really well when she needed help with the tray. The atmosphere was lovely and the furniture was nice wood and brass fittings, it was all really nicely done.
I'll definitely be coming back when I'm next in the Lake District :)

The staff never fail to give some of the best service around despite being very busy at times. The food is impeccable and the cafe has a lovely atmosphere. There's lots of lovely walks for various levels of walkers, with walks varying from a trek up high stile to a leisurely hour and a half stroll around Buttermere lake. The staff are always happy to help and are very good for directions. The cafe also sell maps of the surrounding area if you need a tad more guidance. The whole valley is stunning, and the cafe is the perfect place to stop off at the beginning, the end or during your time in the valley :)

We stopped at this popular cafe before our walk around Buttermere Lake. Service and food were very good. It was quiet at 10.30 am, but looked busy upon our return around lunchtime. Plenty of benches to sit outside.
