Firefighters from Ulverston and Barrow were called out to reports of a fire at Flames Pizzeria, in Fountain Street, at 6.27am.
A statement from Cumbria fire said: "When they arrived crews found that a blaze had taken hold of the shop floor. Crews wearing breathing apparatus tackled the blaze with hose reel jets."
A shop employee was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.
Fountain Street, which was closed between Brewery Street and Church Walk, has since reopened. Police say they were made aware of the incident at 6.42am and the road reopened shortly before 8am.
