We called in after visiting Bakewell. The menu was surprisingly plentiful with lots of variety. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced, service was quick and efficient. If you are in Bakewell it’s well worth a visit.

Cafe with a good selection of affordable sandwiches, panini and main meals. £4.50 for a hot drink (including delicious deluxe hot chocolate) and bakewell pudding - excellent value.
