Expert review of The Apple Pie

The one-stop café-shop.

This Ambleside institution is a doyenne of Lakeland cafes with an all-day menu of simple but satisfying fare.
 

Food and drink: 

A huge choice of hearty cooked breakfasts, light-snack lunches, such as toasties, and yummy cakes for afternoon tea, plus good coffee.

My favourite is the Cumberland Sausage Pie, filled with creamed potato, carrots, onions and cider.
 

After eating your fill, stock up on filled rolls and take-away cakes at the bakery counter for the journey ahead.
 

Ambience: 

Busy and poplar in the main café, quieter in the Garden Room with free WiFi.

Service: 

Simple, bustling café-style service.

Location: 

On the main drag through town and close to the National Trust’ Bridge House.

Price advice: 

The house special, apple pie made with mixed spice and sultanas, served with a dollop of Windermere Ice Cream, costs £3.45.
