High Street, next to the Sun Pub
If you're walking through Hawkshead, you won't be able to miss The Sun Tea Rooms with its giant display of cakes in the front window. We all gaped at the sheer massive size of the cakes, and then when we had a chance to sit down and order them, we did - lemon blueberry, chocolate and strawberry and carrot cake. My favorite was the chocolate, I think - but I will be a little harsh and say that they look more tempting than they taste (I am not a sweets person so this may have a bit to do with it). Still, if you get a table in the sunshine and want a piece of cake that is larger than your head, this is a good pitstop in Hawkshead.
