Whether staying in one of the luxurious Bed and Breakfast rooms at Peak District Spa on business or pleasure, the Stables Café at Rivendale is right on your doorstep, serving gourmet Lavazza Coffee and homemade cakes and lunches from 9am-5pm daily. Forget StarBUCKS and COSTa Coffee, we believe that good coffee should be affordable, and that it should be served right.
Even if you’re not staying in our Peak District accommodation, we invite you to stop by and sample what we have to offer; open to guests and non-guests, we guarantee that you’ll be impressed with our dedication to good food and drink, at reasonable prices.
We offer WiFi access to customers, so you don’t have to be totally disconnected from the outside world.
Or, for those that want to leave their devices at home, our tranquil location in the Peak District National Park, close to popular market towns and villages like Tissington, Thrope, Buxton, Hartington and Ashbourne, makes our cafe a perfect way to escape reality and unwind with a well-prepared café menu at hand – enjoy home comforts; homemade food, tea and cake and cream tea’s.
For walking groups, cyclists, mums groups, or any other
groups looking for a local coffee shop we will gladly cater and
serve small parties without appointment, however larger parties would need to pre-book to ensure they’re not disappointed.
Our coffee shop is unique and traditional, housed within the old stone building; it has a feel that is well suited to the limestone buildings all around the Peak District area, embedded with history and heritage.
