WITH the cold weather it might be time to try out a new place for a warm drink in Cumbria.

These are some of the top-rated cafes in Cumbria as rated by the public.

Dr Brews Coffee

Bowness’ very popular café is located on Grosvenor Terrace and has gathered great reviews from its customers.

Known for its desert and vegan options, Dr Brew’s is also a good place for a tea or coffee.

Michael said: “Great little coffee shop. Our group of 7 tried the sandwiches, coffees, soup, and milkshakes... All good. Really friendly staff too, who went out of their way to make my sons visit that bit more special, he loved the free milkshake they made up for him. Highly recommended if in Bowness.”

Fresher's Cafe

Ambleside’s five star rated café is the perfect place for a good morning breakfast in the lovely town.

With its wide range of breakfasts, teas, coffees, and milkshakes pair perfectly with a morning in Ambleside.

Jennifer said: “I'm not sure if Gods eat quiche, but if they did, it would be here. Came here because of the reviews, intent of having a full English breakfast, as we sat down, we were shown the freshly made quiche and I changed my mind, absolutely incredible and will definitely be back.”

Copper Pot Cafe

Another five-star rated Ambleside café, this one located on Church Street, is a good place to go for a morning coffee.

With options for local cuisine, British, vegetarian, and vegan dishes, this is one to try out.

One reviewer said: “Stopped in for a quick coffee. Welcome and service from staff felt genuinely warm. Nicest mocha I’ve had in a while, nice outside seating area. At the time we visited, their card reader was out of action, so cash only - be aware if you’re planning a visit mid-November, but no doubt they’ll have it fixed.”

The Green Housekeeper Cafe

The popular Coniston café is another five-star rated for its outstanding food and services.

Offering a range of local cuisines, café choices, British food, soups, vegetarian and vegan options, this café has won the acclaim of the local community.

Neil said: “A sunny September day in Coniston, suiting in the sunshine at the Greenhouse keeper cafe. A great ambience even though busy with lots of cyclists enjoying great scones. Staff are brilliant, friendly, and efficient despite slaving in a hot kitchen in the September sunshine.”

Fourpence Cafe & Shoppe

Ulverston’s five star rated café is located on King Street and is known for its British and soup options.

With five stat rating for its food, service, value, and atmosphere, this is one to try.

One reviewer said: “Called in with friends for a coffee and a bite to eat. I had the smoked fish chowder which was really good; everyone enjoyed the food and the coffee.
The place itself is amazing, you could spend hours looking around all of the items they have for sale. Very friendly couple who run the place. Well worth a visit.”
