Just the sort of place Ulverston should have; a place of utter charm.

Think we were served by one of the owner's children and they did a great job. Lovely scones and tea.

Nice little shop attached and worth a visit.

Just happened across this unexpected little gem on a cold Saturday at Easter. Having wandered around Ulverston & in the need of somewhere to have a warm drink we wandered into this pavement appealing tea/coffee shop. A lovely choice of teas & coffees & I changed my mind from a hot chocolate to a ‘mug of milky malted coffee’ & a toasted sandwich of Brie & homemade cranberry sauce. It was only when looking if there was a bacon option that I realised it was actually a vegetarian cafe. Not advertised this way but maybe that was so as not to make the public think it was all beans & nut cutlets!! There was lots of choice for vegetarians & non. The milky coffee arrived in a homely mug as said on the menu, shortly followed by the generous toasted sandwich with salad & coleslaw. The cafe also holds a licence for those wanting a glass of wine etc with lunch. All in all, a very homely, quaint place to find myself & strongly recommend if you’re ever in this small Cumbrian town that Gillams is the place to stop.

Wonderful back in time Tea / Coffee shop, friendly helpful staff.
I had a very good Latte, which i must say is the best one i have had up to now. You could actually taste the coffee which had a smooth taste and creamy milky flavour.
Husband had a House coffee which came in a Cafetiere, and had at least 3 cups.

This is a really nice place to go especially if you are a vegetarian the Loos are something else quite special. If you want to go there it's best to book like we did as it's popular with the locals. It's a bit like Tardis bigger inside than it looks with tables upstairs as well as down stairs. The only snag is that it has no Parking so you have use the local Car parks but they are not far away
