Bluebird Cafe

Bluebird café is located in the southern lakes and serves delicious light bites and hot meals throughout the year. The café holds an idyllic location just aside Coniston Water and, as such, the views from the gardens are spectacular. Whether you’re here for a quick lunch or an evening meal, the Bluebird is a must-visit pre or post walk and, you can even arrive by boat on a Coniston Launch Lake cruise.

What to Order

Hot lunches at the Bluebird include homemade lasagna, vegetable soup and Cumberland sausage butties along with filling toasties and fresh salad bowls for those after a lighter snack. All dishes are made using locally sourced ingredients, and there’s a specials board daily that reflects this.

Sweet Treats

If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth then you’ve come to the right place as an array of cakes, pastries and tarts are baked daily and displayed in the Bluebirds glass cabinets. Why not enjoy a slice of Tiffin or carrot cake on the garden’s terrace, all washed down with a hot chocolate of freshly made coffee.
