One of several Cafe Ambio branches to be found in North West England, the Junction 36 outpost takes a stand at North West Auctions’ J36 Rural Auction Centre. If you’re not a Crooklands or Milnthorpe local down here to buy up a flock of sheep or a herd of cattle, you can at least grab yourself a great coffee and one of Cafe Ambio’s signature light meals – then again, you might be lucky and see a real slice of Cumbrian life if the auction house itself is in full swing, and with the major Lake District centre of Kendal just over 7km up the road, this is a perfect pit stop if you’re exploring this most beautiful of the UK’s regions.
Our party of 10 including 4 children were made very welcome. The staff and service was very good and we all enjoyed our food. We will come again.
