“Wet Bank Holiday”

Cups & Saucers, Farm Tea Shop
Ranked #2 of 2 Coffee & Tea in Silloth
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

Having found a lovely advert for this tearoom in the local parish magazine of the holiday cottage we were staying in, we looked this place up on Facebook.
We noted a dog sat in front of a warming fire on their cover picture so assumed we could take our dog. This proved to be misleading,dogs were not allowed!
Service was warm and friendly and the surroundings pleasant.
The broth soup was tasty but the accompanying sliced white bread didn't suit the image of a farm kitchen, nor did the bread for the toasties. Whilst quite tasty the bread could have been better than the standard supermarket fare. The milkshakes went down well with our daughters and the homemade cakes and biscuits were delicious.
With a few simple changes the tearoom could be even better.

Cups and Saucers is a lovely little hidden gem - very friendly staff, extremely welcoming. Scones were lovely and fresh and went down well with a cup of tea.

I called a pal this morning to see if she was free for coffee...her diary was free...but she said her hubby was at home...due to not playing golf!! I said jokingly "oh bring him along too and when my old man returns from seeing to his flock....I would suggest he joined us. Knowing the lakes would be heaving....I set off and drive along the coast to Allonby, Mawbray, Silloth and when a voice in the back said "have you any idea where we are?" I simply said "have faith" and recalling pleasant trips to Cups And Saucers...headed for this secret place. We had a wonderful welcome...the lady serving us laughed when I asked for a ham and cheese sandwich (without the bread!!) We four had a most enjoyable hour...laughing at the simply lovely pictures and crafts. He laughed and enjoyed wonderful food and it made today a day we four "old pals" shall remember a long time and know we shall return. Excellent food and wonderful service!!

We had passed the sign to this cafe several times. The sign could do with a bit of a refurb and suggested the place would be a bit woebegone too. But today, after a blowy walk along Silloth green we decided to give it a try and nothing could have been further from the fact! This is a light, bright, exceptionally clean and welcoming cafe attached to a farm and some holiday cottages in a pleasant, off the beaten track location. We were greeted very warmly and given plenty of time to look at the menu. There isn't a wide selection (no bacon, for instance) but we felt sure that everything would be homemade and of the highest quality. We opted for a hot chocolate each, a scone with cream and homemade lemon curd and a toasted tea cake. All fresh and lovely!
The loos were very clean - the ladies even had a bunch of fresh flowers - and I noticed there is a wheelchair accessible loo.
A little children's toy area made me think I might take the grandchildren next time.
