We stumbled across Homeground as we walked through Windermere and I am so glad we did. Homeground has been open 3 months and Windermere is definitely the richer for it.  There is fantastic coffee for a start (we couldn’t visit without having 2 flat whites)..  

Then there are the doughnuts… made by the Homeground team and wonderful.  We had malteser cream and apple and cinnamon doughnuts.

   
 

Then there are the collection of homemade cakes.

  

And finally there is breakfast.  Yep we went back. twice. It’s THAT good. 
On our first breakfast trip  Mr Frivolitea had eggs benedict – made with ham hock, a fantastically sharp and zesty hollandaise and sourdough ciabatta.

  
I had poached eggs, bacon and sour dough toast.  

  
And a side of hash browns. Homemade hash browns. Go to Windermere and try them. You will not be disappointed. Go. Go now.
 

On our second visit, Mr Frivolitea had Huevos Racheros with smashed avocado that was beautifully garlicky.

  
And I had the breakfast burger: sausage pattie, bacon, mushroom and egg in sourdough ciabatta with Homeground burger sauce and hash browns. The burger was a thing of beauty and full of flavour. The sharp fruitiness of the burger sauce was a great addition. 

  
This place is great. Truly great. Their passion for coffee and food shines through. I would encourage you all to go but then there’d be no room for me.
