Lovely hidden gem in Kendal. Deceptively large, with a very intimate feel to it. Perfect coffee and teas, delicious food, home baked bread and great, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Kid, dog, and food allergies friendly. All thumbs up.

We loved our first visit to Yard 46; we were very well looked after, the space is just the right mix of informality and comfort. Brilliantly priced wine selection and amazing pizzas. We will definitely go again.

Tucked away along the yard, next to Tourist Info. Very welcoming, even though we had our large lurcher Noah with us. Food is exceptional, cannot recommend highly enough. Good luck in your venture, may you continue to thrive.: ).

Great little cafe. Sat in the courtyard on a gorgeous sunny day. Sweet potato soup was amazingly tasty. And the day breakfast ciabatta with duck egg was phenomenal. Great find. Thoroughly recommended.
