This is easily the classiest cafe in Kendal. The food is excellent with a good choice of heathy and vegetarian dishes, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and even though the cafe is hidden away there are frequently people queuing patiently outside.

This restaurant had recently rearranged itself to be mainly takeaway with limited seating, instead of the full waitress service they used to offer. But then a disastrous fire in the takeaway premises....now we have a pop up eatery, in the former restaurant. The menu offers 3/4 mains, multiple soups, varied hot sandwiches and lovely cakes. Coffee choice is limited but cheap.
So last week, we had a lamb stew with red cabbage, and a really wonderful nut roast, haloumi, avocado, cranberry concoction in a ciabatta.
Only downside is plastic cutlery and card food containers, will take my own cutlery in future!
Cheerful service and all hot and delivered promptly. How do they do it?!!

Had a takeout ploughman’s box with a good selection of cheese and meat. Cheese was of excellent quality and they had a properly selection to choose from, including strong blues. The beef was available rare and had a lot of flavour.

My wife had the falafel and hummus, again, top quality. Best place for lunch that I’ve found in Kendal.

Baba Ganoush used to be an excellent Kendal cafe offering friendly table service and great food. It's now just a deli with some tables to eat at.
They still have an excellent range of food. The cakes look great and the scones are superb. I chose to sit in, yet everything was served in wasteful throw away containers. And trying to butter a scone with butter with a flimsy plastic knife was impossible. Espcecially as it was served on a small tricky cardboard tray. Tasted fine but just it was just a pile of crumbs and lumps of firm butter. This is no way to serve scones! Please for the sake of the food and your customers - and to reduce costs and eliminate the waste, serve food in proper cups and real plates with real cutlery.

Superb deli counter. Lovely salad boxes. Quiche is delicious. All we need now are more tables and seating - bigger premises please because you serve amazing food.
