We have used the Union Jack several times and have never been disappointed. The food is always good, service excellent and the staff are very friendly.

Union Jack is a local favourite. A traditional British cafe, specialising in wonderful, all day cooked breakfasts. But this is no greasy spoon. The food is of the highest quality and the meat and eggs all locally sourced. For those who insist on eating a "proper" lunch at lunchtime, there are tempting offerings to choose from, including soups, pies and... More

Fabulous take-away lunch! I treat myself to a ham & cheese toastie and a portion of chips. The toastie was delicious - proper chunks of roast ham and plenty of really tasty cheese. The chips were lovely too. They'd put a lot of chippy's to shame! Under £5 as well. Will be going back!

12 September 2013 I asked my wife where she wanted to eat for our eleventh wedding anniversary and she replied "The Union Jack". We both had the veggie grill. The service was prompt and friendly, the food was freshly prepared, plentiful and delicious and the bill was just over ten pounds! This is traditional British cafe food at its very... More

This café was full and people were waiting for seats! 1. Chips, egg and beans. 2. Quiche and salad with chips. 3. Cumberland sausage, chips and peas. The chips were hand cut, delicious and hot. Everything was just about as good as you can imagine. So that's three meals and drinks for £17.95! So if you're a fat bloke who... More

I don't often eat out in Kendal as I live there so tend to eat at home but the Union Jack is one of the places I do go for. The food is simple and always seems to be made to order. Prices at aren't had either. On my last visit, I think had a Ham, cheese and pineapple toastie,... More

My wife and I popped in for lunch- who could resist a place with so many glowing reviews? Straightaway, we had a difficulty as I am of 'a fuller figure' and the fixed seating didn't allow for someone of my build to sit down. Thankfully, there were two chairs secreted away by the lower level, rear doors, so I was... More

EVery time we are in Kendal breakfast here is a must. Always to a very high standard, the wife particularly enjoys the kippers with two poached eggs, whilst my preference is a traditional full English. A wonderful no frills proper cafe.

The breakfast here was very good and at a low price, although for a large breakfast I expected more than one slice of bacon. It still tasted good though. Overall I enjoyed the experience here and understand why it is so popular with the people of kendal. It is a very typical cafe serving hearty food at a good price... More
