Small coffee shop but delicious hand made chocolates and great range of Lakes ice cream. Parking always a problem in Cartmel, in the small square right in front of the priory.

Enjoyed coffee and cake at the outside tables watching the world bustling past. Friendly service with a good choice of cakes and scones. A visit to the adjacent shop is highly recommended.

Whilst I have never had anything here myself I go as they sell a doggy ice cream which comes with a choice of a chew or biscuit, my dog loves to get her doggy treat when we visit.
