Stumbled across this community project when looking for a cup of coffee and a take-away sandwich during a walk. Blown away by the warm welcome and gorgeous staff. Food and coffee excellent. Why do other cafes find it impossible to serve FRESH decaf coffee, when here a cafetière of good Fairtrade decaf is only £2. Wide choice of sandwiches.
We went back the next day with our wives for lunch. Managed to get last table, and chose from the fabulous range of scones; sweet and savoury. Cheddar/ Chive, cheese/ marmite (try it, it tastes fine) sweet lemon/ poppy seed. Had them as part of the soup & scone or "ploughman scone" options. Succulent lunch. All staff so cheerful and giving work experience to some young people as well.
Great bookshop too.

A must -visit place.

Thank you all.

Really nice pancakes, breakfast, soups and salads. Nice atmosphere and genuinely friendly service. We came here while on holiday and my children had fruit pancakes for my sons birthday and they were fantastic. There are some toys for children to play with, which is always nice.

We visited twice, once for tea and cake and then back for lunch. Both times the staff were super friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The food is delicious and they do a good range of vegetarian, gluten free and a couple of vegan dishes. We wouldn't hesitate to go back if we return to Appleby.

I visited with a party of 8. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food I had -a falafel salad was beautifully presented and well priced. Well worth a visit.
