Choose carefully!

I wish I'd picked a different crepe here. The sweet ones all sounded delicious. I got the sausage and cheese crepe. The sausages were vegetable sausages when I expected 'meaty' sausages. The cheese hadn't really melted and was very sickly. There was nothing with any flavour: the pancake was unflavoured, the sausages were mainly potato and the cheese wasn't flavoured. I definitely picked badly and just want to warn other people off this option! Definitely needed a sauce, less cheese and a heads up about the sausages being vegetables.

Best coffee around!

We often go to Grasmere for retreat's and thus have got to sample all the coffee shops in the village. Emma's is by far the best for coffee and probably the only one serving vegan cake. The cafe is light and airy- lots of space and service is always great. Were disappointed when it was closed on Sunday and Monday - had to go elsewhere and it just didn't match Emmas.

Pros: Great oat milk cappuccinos, Nice to have vegan cake choices

Cons: Closed Sunday and Monday when we were there

Delicious crepes

Great selection of vegan crepes, I had the Cumbrian (vegan sausage and caramelised onion) and Temptation (sticky apple sponge and cinnamon creme anglaise), both of which were absolutely delicious!

Several vegan options

I always enjoy finding a crepe place that offers vegan options and there are several here. I had the pesto vegan option with vegan halloumi that was surprisingly good. Would recommend.

Warm and friendly

Choice of both sweet and savoury vegan crepes, some great smoothies too. I think it's good value for money and the place itself was nice and spacious.

Friendly atmosphere and many vegan options

Today they had a choice of 2 vegan cakes, and all the cakes were very generous potions. Friendly staff, table service, plenty of tables but filled up fast at lunchtime! Also some outside seating for the summer.

Relaxing atmosphere, lovely staff and well marked vegan options

Emma's Dell is a very friendly, modern, relaxing cafe. The vegan options were clearly marked and the owner took great care to double check which of the options we'd ordered were vegan. The crepes were made fresh to order. Taste wasn't exceptional so I would recommend they work a bit more on filling flavour of the savoury crepes - for example the Tandoori was very saucy with not many vegetables. However, this is a new vegan-friendly cafe in Grasmere and I was very impressed with the wide selection and helpfulness of the staff. Well worth a visit.

Pros: Wide range of well marked vegan options, Very friendly and helpful staff, Relaxing atmosphere

Cons: Better fillings and flavour please
