Bernie’s Café


Bernie’s café has been trading on Ingletons’ high street for over 60 years.  We are very proud of our coffee and the food that we produce, it’s all made fresh in our kitchen every day for you to eat in or take away.

Bernie’s café has a celebrated history of being a caving and sports café, this is something we are keen to keep alive, but we are not just a hub for the outdoor type.   Our food and coffee is second to none so if you just want to come in, meet friends and sit by our fire drinking a perfect cappuccino or latte, Bernie’s is the place to visit.

Our chef David makes the delicious meals and home bakes for pudding or you can tuck into our best seller, the famous Bernie’s breakfast. We source as much local produce as we can so we can support our local community and our Barrister coffee is delivered to us by Rinaldo’s of Kendal.   We like to cater for everyone so our menu has vegetarian, vegan and Gluten free options to choose from as well as our regular meals. Our friendly team will be in the café seven days a week, so don’t worry what day your planning to visit Ingleton, we will be open and ready to welcome you.

Bernie’s is the perfect meeting point for groups before you head out for the day, a comfy spot to stop for lunch or even a hot drink and cake to refuel after a day out exploring. Whatever you have been doing, we are sure you will enjoy our café.

Bernie’s offers a Three Peaks service, if you want to park your car in Ingleton and meet us at our café we will drive you up to Chapel le Dale to start your journey.
