About Cafe Ambio - Ings

There are branches of the Cafe Ambio brand scattered all over the north of England (plus one at Le Mans in France), but what’s the secret to this cafe and bistro-style restaurant’s success? Here in the tiny Lake District village of Ings the location plays a large role – just 15 minutes drive up the A591 from Kendal, en route to the UK’s largest lake, Windermere, and in the heart of Cumbria’s Lake District National Park, Cafe Ambio offers a great place to pause and indulge in a refreshing coffee and a bite to eat if you’re out exploring. The menu is bursting with ingredients sourced from North West English suppliers, and includes the well-known shrimp and smoked salmon terrine, available on the shelves in London’s Selfridge’s.
