We are now considered 'retailer's as this place is hard to beat! The setting by the river is pretty stunning too. The steam railway running through the woodlands added to the atmosphere and even in winter, there are canoe enthusiasts ready to brave the elements.

The cafe looked quite ordinary. However, the cakes and scones were amazing and the coffee was great (and I am quite fussy about coffee).

While visiting the Lakeland Motor Museum, you can visit Cafe Ambio for a Coffee, or fill a spot if you get peckish whilst onsite.
The food is good quality and a good price for the Lake District.
And the Cafe has the big advantage that you can buy a slice of cake, and take it back to your accommodation.
And the size of the slice will put on a good few calories.
Perfect...

This is a large rather soulless place, but the smell when we walked in at 11:50 boded well. There was a good selection of what looked like nice cakes - we tried the coffee and walnut which was really disappointing as it didn’t taste of coffee at all (bearing in mind how easy a decent coffee flavour is that is dire).

Thankfully they did do a good flat white.

We've been here a couple of times to meet with friends, it's just off the A590 attached to the motor museum. Always a friendly greeting and the place is light and airy along side the river, if its nice sit outside. The food is great quality with a decent menu and the service top notch too with friendly staff.
Prices pretty reasonable and good selection of tea and coffee. Good disabled access with clean toilets too. Free Wi-Fi
Would recommend if visiting S Lakes, close to south of Lake Windermere, Haverthwaite Railway, Motor Museum, Holker Hall.
