Seriously good cafe in a quaint location, next to Wheelbase and providing a great base for routes around the local Cumbrian hills. Perfect stop off for a tired, hungry cyclist! Renting the building out for evening functions has been fun in the past too. Recommended!
Visited for lunch with local friends whilst on holiday in the area. This cafe is definitely off the tourist trail, in a business/retail development, and frequented mostly by locals who all seem to know each other. It shares a building with a micro-brewery, and you can buy beer by entering the bar through a connecting door. You have to queue to order meals and non-alcoholic drinks, which are then delivered to your table without much delay. The relaxed eating areas are on 2 levels, nicely decorated, overlooking the river Kent. There is a variety of food, from sandwiches to hot meals, with plenty of choice for vegetarians. The portions are quite modest in size, but OK for a quick lunch.
Wilfs cafe is the BEST CAFE in the WORLD!! O.K O.K i hear you shout. But it is the food is plentiful and a great price Wilf’s veggie Chili will sort you out after a long cycle or a heavy night on the town.
The postion by the river is breathtaking and next door there is a brewery what more could you want.
There is also special nights you can go as well top notch
This is my favourite place to eat in Windermere. Wilf’s is apparently legendary and if it is then it certianly deserves the status.
It’s a little on the pricey side but that is to be expected for any eatery in a busy tourist area and I would say it’s no more expensive than others in the vicinity.
The premises are clean, tidy, well staffed, spacious and generally a joy to sit in. There is enough privacy to enjoy a meal with your friends without feeling overlooked too.
Onto the food. It’s good wholesome food. The cafe seems to be popular with walkers and the meals certainly would help them gather enough energy for the rest of the day. Portion sizes are generous for both food and drinks.
Car parking is limited and sometimes a bit hairy as the spaces aren’t marked and can be left tight.
Overall an excellent eatery, where everyone is welcome.
Wilf’s is a legendary cafe in the Staveley industrial estate. It has a lovely riverside setting in an old mill and has a huge interior with room for many tables on more than one level. On a sunny day the best place to sit is outside on the terrace overlooking the river.
The food is very tasty here and it’s all healthy wholesome fare at reasonable prices. The salads are very good and you get plenty! Service is friendly and fairly efficient although at very busy times you might need to wave at the waiter or waitress so they can find you.
