This place is a good find & was very busy on our visit. We had a lovely bowl of cauliflower soup, with a nice chunk of bread, & we also shared a coronation chicken bun, served with salad & crisps. Service was good & staff were friendly. Looked like some nice cakes too, but we were a bit full, maybe... More

Head off the beaten track to the bottom of the alley for The Canteen, right on the corner, and step up into the bright space for comfort food with a middle eastern style - if you want - or just lashings of Lakeland cakes, flapjacks etc. No Babaganoush was on offer at the time of our visit so we had...

Met my sister and brother in-law for lunch. They live in Kendal so know this restaurant well. What a cool place with a menu that is quirky and varied, they also have a specials board daily. Loved my food a bowl of bolognese and eggy welsh rarebit. Scrumptious scrumptious scrumptious i can't rate it highly enough. It does get very... More

We struggled to choose what to have as everything is familiar yet original - cheese on toast, soups, sandwiches, etc. However you can have the cheese on toast (Welsh rarebit) with bacon jam! And the soup came with chilli and cheese bread (or not, if you prefer plain). A fabulous hot chocolate too. All reasonable prices. Disappointed I don't live... More

I had an opportunity to visit the cafe twice when visiting Kendal for the Mountain Festival. From the moment you walk in you notice the vibrant colors and your eyes are drawn to the impressive range of cakes and pastries. First visit was just for t/away coffee and two different brownies. Coffee was good with strong flavor, brownies had a... More

You might not expect it at first glance but every single dish here is fantastic and affordable! Try the soups, snacks from the Deli counter or a slice of cake and a coffee or tea. It will not disappoint!

Food in a box to take out. Simple but great idea. We ate in. Several soups on offer, ordered curried vegetable, very good. Had a turkey, brie and cranberry panni. Lovely bread. Coffee good too. Very busy. Staff very helpful. Sharing table to meet new people lovely idea. Beats the chain type places hands down.

Real nice food outlet staff are friendly professional and attentive, menu is always good and all made on the premises or their own bakery up the yard they are located in. Their coffee in my opinion is better than you get in the well known high street coffee outlets. No views to rave about but they have some interesting art... More

The deli bar has a great range of tasty ingredients from which you can make up your lunch, or just a snack. I recommend this place for a tasty lunch.
