Pumpkin Café

19 Lake Road Keswick CA12 5BS

You’ll pass Pumpkin on the way to the lake, so it’s a handy place to put together a picnic to eat on the shoreside paths and lawns of Derwent Water. The deli section downstairs sells gourmet sandwiches and wraps, homemade sausage rolls, salads to go, muffins, cakes, smoothies and the like – the choc brownies get the big thumbs-up. There’s also a classy café menu (mushrooms on toast,seared beef salad, grilled salmon, homemade burgers), with dishes served upstairs in the cool coffee lounge.
