Leisurely Lunch on our Easter Break

We went out of our way to visit Kendal during our Easter break after seeing the reviews and accolades this cafe had received. We were not disappointed. The food was exceptional! Fresh, flavoursome and friendly staff made for an excellent lunch! Highly recommend!

Very tasty food here and at a range of prices. Tucked away down one of the alleys but worth searching out.

Food - good Service - poor Towards the end of a presumably busy day as we spoke to at least four members of staff and they were all clearly far more interested in doing other things - not in serving us. Certainly did not live up to the hype.

The best salads and breads in the area. It's only a small place ( not to be mistaken for the sister resuarant further down the snicket) so you might not get a seat at rush hour. Worth waiting for.

I tried out Baba Ganoush cafe for the first time today. The canteen is more of a restaurant and is across the street. I ordered a ploughman's salad box and was impressed by the beautifully rare roast beef, succulent turkey and Stilton. Excellent range of salads to choose from (I struggled to pick three), fresh bread and pickle. There were... More

This is a brilliant place, friendly and helpful staff. The food is delicious and unique definitely not your usual menu. Brilliant choice of vegetarian meals. Only problem is it is so good you can't always get a table.
