    Fabulous staff and service. Wonderful hot chocolate and coffees. Went out of their way to get a gluten free option for one of our large party. Nothing was too much trouble. Extremely reasonable. Loved the pear jam !

    Dropped in Wednesday a.m to kill half an hour before Wordsworth's House. Lovely ambience. Great background music and an interesting clientele. Staff personable, courteous and efficient. Love the Rubiks cube, 3D noughts and crosses etc Coffee superb and food looked great. Nice touch is a glass of water served with your coffee continental style. Will definitely return next time in Cockermouth.

    If you’re desperate for high-street chain pap then go somewhere else. If you appreciate independent cafes with home cooked food and quality locally roasted coffees all prepared with love then you’re in luck. I don’t usually buy toast in cafes but the homemade sourdough is worth it. Good scones too.

    Popped in here during our little trip to Cockermouth, looked really nice and as soon as we walked in we were welcomed by the staff. As we sat down we were given a glass of water each too, great idea as in most places you have to ask. We ordered coffee and cake and they were excellent, can not fault this little place at all, will be back when next in Cockermouth.

    Great coffee (cappuccino with a flat white) and cake (coconut and lime with pear sponge) with good vibe. Getting Saturday morning going

    We just popped in for a little break. This is a great place for having a coffee of tea. We enjoyed the soup too (great flavours) Staff was very kind and helpful

    We stumbled across this gem of a place when we were looking for somewhere to shelter from the rain on a miserable Sunday afternoon. A lovely warm welcome, good coffee and absolutely amazing Guiness and Chocolate Cake.

    Visited Cockermouth whilst on a long long weekend in Keswick. After a nice walk we visited quite a few shops ,which are wonderful, and by 11.45 ish we fancied a coffee. Stumbling into the Moon and sixpence was awesome. Lovely greeting by a gentleman who directed us to high seat or a lower seat and immediately returned with two glasses of water from a huge jug laden with oranges and mint. Lovely ambience was enjoyed with a delightful cup of coffee and a large capochino both at a very reasonable price. They seem to know all their Saturday morning regulars by their Christian names and the lady spoke with us as if she had known us for longer that the 30 minutes or so that we were in. A fascinating selection of coffees,bread and cakes on offer Highly recommended to anybody visiting the delightful town of Cockermouth.

    Really, really good coffee. Need to go back to sample the food. It's a very nice relaxed atmosphere which served as a perfect break in our travels. Been before, and returned on purpose.

    Visited here for only the second time with friends from the north east who had not visited before. We chose this place as there are not many places open on a Sunday! Coffees were all excellent, and whilst the cakes were good, some were smaller slices- so was only charged half price for one cake. Small space but adequate and were given water.

    Wonderful cosy coffee shop! Lovely soup was just what we needed on a cold day. Selection of cakes was great - some of the best vegan cake we have ever had! Staff were very welcoming and accommodating.

    The cafe has few tables which will seat four people and when we arrived these were all taken by couples, with tables for two unoccupied. It isn't a good place for families and while the staff said hello they did little to help. Of the cafes we visited in Cockermouth, this was the least good. Even service at Greggs across the road was better than here!

    What a delight to stumble upon this tea room treasure in Cockermouth last Tuesday. The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly and attentive. Our server brought a glass of water straightaway as we arrived, which was a nice touch and much needed on a warm day, but no rush to take our order (time was needed to choose from the wide array of drinks on offer!). I had the best scone I’ve eaten in years - straight up with butter only, so nowhere to hide... with a zingy lemongrass and ginger tea, it was heaven on a plate! Be sure to pop in. Thank you guys for a memorable pit stop on our tour of the Lakes.

    Fabulous find in the Main Street in Cockermouth. The owner is a great advert for his cafe and exudes good will and knowledge. Great range of drinks and wonderful cakes.

    Have been here three times now in the last year and can vouch for the Moon & Sixpence having the best coffee in the country. Had a cheese scone today with my coffee and the scone was also easily the nicest scone I've ever had anywhere. Great place to stop at.

    Delicious coffee at a little hidden gem. There’s not a huge amount of space so don’t expect to fit in a pushchair etc. For some reason I was given a complimentary glass of water while waiting for my coffee. Nice environment and friendly staff makes this a great place for a brew.

    Visited Cockermouth again and had to give this place a stop-off. It was excellent last time and its just as good today. Excellent coffee above all else and at a temperer thats drinkable, not scolding hot as most others serve it. Went for a special they suggested and it was as they described. It was also nice to hear the two servers in dialogue with customers educating them on their bread! Nice people, nice place, nice coffee. Would always recommend a stop. I personally was pleased that dogs are kept out. We seem to be over-run with them every where you go. Tables outside are provided for dog owners.

    Great little coffee house serving amazing coffee and cakes. Fabulous service and reasonably priced. Very busy coffee house but worth a visit. Highly recommended.
