This cafe is average apart from the location. It is next to the famous Grasmere Church and by the side of the river. The coffee was ok but nothing spectacular.

Stopped by for a lunch on a whistle stop visit to Grasmere. The soup was amazing! Kids had pannini's which were pretty substantial with good fillings. Fast and efficient service too.

Description
The Grasmere Tea Gardens provides a lovely respite after a long walk up the fells, or a quick enjoyable stop over for diverse coach parties. We offer an array of homemade soups, sandwiches, paninis, chilli, and jacket potatoes, as well as home baked cakes and scones. As well as a variety of teas and coffees, we serve a selection of cold beer and wine, and yummy soft serve ice-cream. Our staff provide quick and friendly service for those on a tight schedule, or beautiful views, rain or shine, from our outdoor terrace, overlooking the Grasmere Church and famous grave site of poet William Wordsworth.
