Fabulous bookshop - a lot of thought has gone in to this business. I particularly liked the handwritten book recommendations. The food in the café was delicious and the staff helpful and friendly.

Went in just whilst in Cockermouth. Popped in as never been in before. It’s lovely and modern, however cakes are slightly dry. Had the lemon drizzle was past its best. Staff are lovely and so was the hot chocolate

Excellent book shop with very helpful but not ‘pushy ‘ staff. Very good advice given and lovely looking tea room.

Had a pleasant light lunch can recommend the following. Bacon and brie, pesto and Parma ham.
The soup of the day was lovely as well.

We discovered this place by accident following the signs to the cafe through a modern and interesting book shop.
The majority of the seating is upstairs in a very light and bright mezzanine, two large skylights relieve the potential cramped feeling.
Service was good although we had to go downstairs to make our order from the rather small counter.
They cater well for vegan and those with food intolerance which is a big vote winner for our party. We ended up being tempted to an early lunch by the specials available, I had Moroccan stew. There was a good selection of standard items too.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time and will use this cafe again.
