Unfortunately, we’ve had to close Moochin’ About Jazz Cafe at wayside station Road…it was a tough decision. but being such a small space it wasn’t something we feel would be viable with not able to sit as many customers in… also the cafe was all about meeting new people and enjoying the music without having to wear masks and being screened of from one another..!

But.. we will be returning..! the venue its still under negotiation, but we’re planning on opening up later this year, if not in the new year…

so we will look forward seeing you all in the not too distant future…

Best coffee I’ve had in the UK, great food and perfect owners (super genuine and friendly)!
Deep rich coffee. Deep music. Deep love.
Can’t recommend enough. Great for walkers like me. Very cosy and accomodating. The Persian soup and bread was divine. This is definately the stopping place for me and my friends from now on.
Lovely coffee bar…alittle bit different than the norm which was great to see. Service was outstanding and the coffee was spot on. Highly recommend.
Wonderful hour and a half spent here yesterday (thank you Northern Rail for one of your more beneficial cancellations which led us here!). Lovely friendly staff, great food and drink and ambience. Keep up the good work!
Amazing espresso. Delicious granola. Bravo!

Really good selection of herbal teas. As a fitness instructer I would recommend visiting for the herbal tea range and the bagels. Delicious.

They make even decaf coffee taste just as good as I remember actual coffee tasting. A real sense of respect for their blends.
They really know what they are doing here. Great all round atmosphere.
Some of the best coffee I’ve had all year. If you’re a coffee lover you need to try this place.
A well hidden gem, a great find right opposite the station at Arnside. Great welcome, fantastic panini’s. The couple who run it are just great. I suggest you plan your visit there as they have a great collection of vinyl and Jazz boxsets. We will definately be popping back in when we come back in the summer.
Fabulous food, fabulous coffee, fabulous music and fabulous hosts. Could not have received a warmer welcome. We will definitely be visiting whenever we are in Arnside.
Delicious tray bakes, lovely drinks including amazing hot chocolate (enjoyed by my niece). Really friendly staff. Top place.
Yes Yes! Stop here for the wrap. Persian hummus to die for! music is played to order. Magnificent. See you very soon!
Fantastic little coffee shop with an amazing hostess. Thank you for having us, sorry about the noise & mess!
Great sourdough panninis and rolls combined with the decor and music makes for a lovely place to call for a coffee! You could be in a trendy coffee bar in London!
Cool little coffee shop, the brownies are to die for!
The best coffee in Cumbria … and probably the UK..!
