A trip to our flagship Windermere store just wouldn't be complete without a visit to the 'First Floor' Café.
Now owned and run by Stephen Dodd, First Floor prides itself on its locally sourced, innovative menu that celebrates the very best the Lake District has to offer.
Stephen brings with him two chefs with experience working in renowned restaurants such as L'Enclume and the Drunken Duck. Working with produce from a whole host of incredible local suppliers, the First Floor chefs have worked their magic to create an amazing new selection of delicious dishes for breakfast, lunch and everything in between!
For those who like a tipple with their meal, the First Floor is licensed, and if you're looking for something a little lighter, unwind after all that shopping with a well-deserved coffee and a slice of something nice... whilst enjoying the sweeping panoramic views of the Lakeland fells.
