Had to come here for breakfast after looking at all the lovely reviews on here and I have to say I understand why people rave about this place. The food was gorgeous the breakfast burrito was super tasty and is one of best breakfasts I have had. It was stunning. I will be back tomorrow for another one. Wasn’t too busy and service was great and the owners were very friendly. We didn’t have cake but it looked really good. If you’re passing by it is well worth popping in. I highly recommend

A little place tucked away in a corner that provides excellent food, all fresh. Really helpful and efficient for a party with 2 coeliacs, one of whom is vegetarian. All 4 of our party were impressed and enjoyed a lovely meal followed by gluten free desert.

Graze has a unique menu which makes a nice change, it also has 15 options suitable for vegans!!
The service was great- very friendly and efficient.
The food was beautifully presented and freshly made! And most importantly, very tasty!

Thanks for the great review, we are not specifically a vegan cafe but as our food is prepared to order we are able to alter ingredients in the majority of our dishes. As well as the 15 dishes on the menu, we also currently offer 4 vegan cake options and although it did prove a huge challenge to make egg-free cakes, they are proving equally popular with vegans and non-vegans alike!

There are much bigger cafes in Bowness and it's not easy to get a table here but we used trip advisor to find the best and my goodness that worked. Just 2 people seem to work incredibly hard to service the tables and we had the famed flatbreads which had a really tasty chilli. The only criticism was that as a group of 4, there was only 1 table possible inside which was occupied and one squished on the balcony partly in the rain. We still sat in the rain and enjoyed it!

Thank you for the lovely review, we only have 12 seats inside and 12 outside which, as you experienced, are dictated by the weather but we're really glad you enjoyed the flatbreads. It can get very busy and you are not wrong in saying there are much bigger cafes as we are currently the smallest in Bowness but we do work hard to make the most out of the space and it's so nice to have our hard work recognised.
