Passion for perfection

The brains behind Coniston Foodhouse is Coniston local Kirsty, who recently set up the sandwich bar in 2023. Originally from Manchester, Kirsty grew up visiting the Lake District on family holidays. Eventually, she realised her dreams of living here after successfully gaining employment in the area.

Kirsty set up a home in Coniston with her husband and established their family. A busy mum of 3, cooking the family dinner each night ignited Kirsty’s passion for creating delicious cakes and treats. The visitors to the Coniston Foodhouse, looking for places to eat in Coniston, benefit from Kirsty’s years of tweaking recipes to get the perfect slice. We highly recommend the blondie, which is perfectly baked so that it’s crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. Is your mouth watering yet?

Maybe you need something filling before a long day of activities, you have come to the right place! Choose from a selection of breakfast buns to go with your morning coffee.
