After visiting here a couple of times before for tea, coffee & cake we thought it'd make a great place to meet-up with some friends and catch-up. It was mid-morning on Saturday and we thought we'd avoid the rush grab a coffee and a bite before enjoying a walk around Cockermouth whilst catching up with friends and rather than going... More

When I review a place I rarely give out a 5 star and I rarely give out a 1 star. I also rarely respond to reviews because I think most of them stand for themselves. Visitors and readers can make up their own minds about a particular review and the person making the review. However, when someone post a one... More

Coffee Kitchen is the "go to" cafe for me and friends to meet for a light lunch in Cockermouth. The service is efficient and very friendly, the food is really tastey and is consistently fresh and well cooked. They have a wide range of seriously good coffee and we usually have their house coffee which is the cheapest but all... More

At last someone in the UK that can make coffee. Visited here the first time 10th March I enjoyed the coffee so much I had 3 cups. I wasn't hungry so unfortunately I can't comment of the food but the service I received and staff friendliness cannot be faulted. I just hope the cake isn't as good as the coffee... More

this place is great. It is down a side street so not immediately noticeable. However the food is lovely. I had the rarebit with a side salad and chutney, my sister had a triple dipper of olives, balsamic, oil, hummus and lots of lovely fresh-baked bread. Both absolutely wonderful. The coffee was great too. There are tables to sit at... More

I have been a number of times now and am never disappointed. They open from 8am to 6pm which is really useful and if you go in at 545pm you don't feel like you are being rushed out like some other places! The coffee is really great as is the speciality hot chocolate. They bake fabulous bread on the premises... More

We always try to visit here when we are in Cockermouth. We haven't tried all the coffee houses and there are lots of new coffee shops opening up but the coffee served here is very good. The food is wholesome, tasty and reasonably priced. We had a rarebit - two generous slices and salad plus a wholemeal scone served with... More

Great hours at this cafe so you can start your day with their lovely choice of breakfasts, enjoy their amazing selection at lunch or chill out at the end of the day with a cake & choice of coffees or teas. Service is faultless & their homemade bread is gorgeous ...but get there early before it all sells out !... More
