I've been using The Coffee Kitchen for nearly 2 years now and quite simply it's one of the best places in Cockermouth to eat, drink and buy innovative quality bread. A favourite of mine is the Cumbrian Rarebit it's simply sublime!

This was my second visit. The staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing is to much trouble. The food is excellent quality and I can recommend the salads. The bread is baked fresh daily. And great selection of teas and coffees.

Stopped for coffee and was not disappointed. It was delicious! Strong brew and plenty of options. Disappointed that the blend we drank was not on sale. Well worth a stop for the coffee alone.

Although down an unprepossessing side street in the town this place must be searched out. The entrance and bakery downstairs lead up to a very welcoming coffee house on the first floor. Attentive staff made us very welcome, the menu is supplemented by daily specials on the board. If you have travelled on the continent and wondered why the coffee... More

That's a lovely review. Thanks. Yeah, it was a bit hot that week. Air-con is in the pipeline but as you say - this is Cumbria! More

I highly recommend stopping by the coffee kitchen- whether for a quick coffee, a relaxed lunch or for a place to read a good book with fantastic food! My husband and I have been many times, and it is one of the main coffee shops we take friends and family who visit. They frequently update their menu of coffee and... More

Very friendly, very local coffee house. Good range of fair trade coffees from interesting places you may not have tried before. They also specialise in home made bread, including sour doughs.
