Our Story


There's lots of things we love.  We love the lakes, love our coffee and cake and also love cycling.  The Saddleback's kitchen is situated right on the Coast to Coast cycle route and a desire to bring these passions together resulted in leaving the 9-5 office job and converting a Rice Horse Box to bring coffee, cake with traditional Cumbrian fyre to the Lakes.

Why Saddleback's?  Well, apart from the obvious horse link, we wanted to throw in a nod to our love of bikes, and they've certainly got a saddle!  Our coffee is expertly roasted by Carvetii Coffee, based in Threlkeld in the shadow of Blencathra, known affectionately locally as Saddleback.  So Saddleback's it is.
