Best Breakfast in Windermere

Home Ground Café

While it’s difficult to decide upon the best breakfast in Windermere, the Main Road isn’t a bad place to start. It’s only just round the corner from a hostel near Windermere train station and where you will find 2 of our personal choices. The first of which, Home Ground Café, is certainly nice and central. What’s more, if you’re in a hurry and miss breakfast, then you can always get a sandwich or jacket potato to go.

Brambles Tea Rooms

Along the Main Road, a few doors along from Home Ground are Brambles Tea Rooms. Which, just like our first choice is ideal for those on a budget. It’s slightly closer to Windermere train station too. So even if you’ve checked out of your accommodation, you can always pop along for breakfast before making the journey home.


If you fancy an alternative to your traditional cooked breakfast, then Graze offer a variety of choices. Breakfast burritos, pancakes and healthy granola pots. There’s a wide selection suitable for vegetarians too. Something that continues through the Graze brunch menu, which is available all day.

Mio Mondo Coffee Shop

While Graze may suit those staying in Windermere on a health kick, those with a sweet tooth will appreciate Mio Mondo. While you can enjoy a moderately sized fry up, the cakes look pretty special too.

The Pig

Sometimes the best breakfast in Windermere comes in the form of pub grub. That’s exactly what the popular Windermere public house, the Pig offers its locals. So if you’re staying at a hostel or guesthouse in Windermere, then why not join them?
