With the baking beginning at the break of each day, the cafe is a warm and cosy place to be. The perfect place to meet, gather, relax, eat & drink.
We open at 8am everyday for breakfast, serving locally cured smoked bacon, freshly laid eggs from a farm just 16 miles away and of course our famous Cumberland sausage. If this isn't your idea of breakfast heaven we serve a selection of other dishes, including a vegetarian breakfast, porridge with fresh blueberries, american style pancakes with crispy bacon and maple syrup as well as breakfast sandwiches and baguettes and more. We have everything you could need to set you up for a day in the stunning Lake District.
However you take your coffee, whether you like a straight up Americano, an intense Espresso or Macchiato or a deliciously frothy Cappuccino you can be assured it is made with the finest quality Italian whole roasted beans to give you a taste unrivalled anywhere in town. If coffee isn't your drink of choice we also serve breakfast tea, Earl Grey and decaf teas as well as a wide range of fruit teas. If you prefer something more decadent our hot chocolates are highly recommended and frequently receive a "Wow!" or a "Look at that!" as we serve them. We have a huge choice of toppings, cream and marshmallows, chocolate orange, salted caramel or the ultimate triple chocolate! We even have white hot chocolate.
If you are looking for a light lunch or snack we have a selection of freshly made paninis, sandwiches, baguettes or rolls to choose from. Or for something more hearty we have a variety of homemade hot dishes including, quiche, fritatta, pie of the day, lasagne and garlic bread, whopper sausage rolls (a firm favourite with the regulars and a must try for anyone visiting for the first time!), jacket potatoes and of course soups.
Laura in the Lakes is fully family friendly and we offer little portions for your little people. All little people's meals come with either a bottle of milk or a fruit juice drink included. We have highchairs available, just ask us! We welcome furry family members into the cafe too and have a secret stash of biscuits to stop them feeling left out!
Our counter is full of home baked treats, including tiffin with a large selection of flavours and toppings available, biscuits, flapjacks, lots of cakes and definitely not forgetting our locally renowned giant scones! All of our sweet treats are lovingly made onsite in our kitchen and we hope to have something to suit everyone. Our personal favourite cakes are the carrot, orange and walnut cake or the salted caramel toffee fudge cake. Our chocolate and beetroot brownie has to be tried to be believed, but trust us it is delicious! And of course we have the white chocolate and Guinness cake... honestly there are just too many tasty treats to choose from!
We offer a range of gluten free options including jacket potatoes and rolls with a wide range of filling choices. Our homemade soups are also gluten and dairy free. We have even got gluten free cake available for that sweet treat!
All of the food and drinks we serve in the cafe are available to take out so whether you are looking for a place to sit and enjoy your lunch or something quick to grab and take with you for a walk or a picnic we have got you covered!
