Came across this almost by accident. Planned to go to another nearby cafe but hey had sold out by 2pm! We were so pleased though because this place is a good find.

We have visited this restaurant on many ocassions but recently the food quality has been slipping - the last time we went the meat was cold and dry - the chips were reheated and very dry inside and we do not like our food served on tin bowls it makes it difficult to eat. We also find the menu has... More

This is by far the best place I've eaten lunch. The quiche was absolutely fantastic, all the salad options looked appetising and were delicious and the the portion sizes were very generous.

Lovely food here very inventive and fresh salads. The meats are lovely but the KickAss cheddar a real star.it really is only a deli so the seating is very cramped. On a wet day the walkers have a touch of "wet dog" about them but it is walking country Still great food

Had fantastic breakfast roll & coffee hear last week. Been many times & can't beat it. Go early as it's always full over lunch times. I will be back.

Great find off the beaten track. Hash was very tasty & puddings looked good but I was too busy to stay & enjoy. Service great Food tasty Clean & tidy Not easy to find though but well worth hunting out.

Takeaway shop (with a few tables and seats) has an amazing range of salads, quiches, breads, delicious soups and hot sandwiches. Very good value wholesome food. Some of the shop assistants could be advised to smile a bit more and improve their customer skills. This slightly lets down the lovely lunchtime fayre.

Went here with my husband on a recent trip to Kendal. Very good homemade food, lots of choice whether you are a veggie, or not. I had the vegetarian mezze while my husband chose a hearty soup. The place was packed and we had to wait a few minutes to be seated but other than that the service was excellent.

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!
