Ranked #23 of 113 restaurants in Kendal
Price range: $7 - $14
Cuisines: Eclectic, Café, Soups, Family Fare
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, Delivery
Description: Our Cafe is tricky to find at the back of The Mill Yard by the river, but deserves to be found for all sorts of reasons.... Based in the old Bobbin Loft with some of the old line workings still in place, we have traditional seating plus a cosy sofa area inside plus decking over looking the river Kent for warmer days. The Cafe offers great breakfasts, lunches, home-made cakes and afternoon teas plus daily meaty, veggie & fishy specials & Cream Teas. The menus represent good wholesome, value for money meals, all cooked on the premises. More than a Cafe, the venue is available to hire in the evening for functions, club nights, dinners etc. We can also supply buffets at your own venue for all occasions or Wilf's Away meals to heat up yourself for easy group catering.

The food here is excellent and reasonably price and you get plenty for your money, only downside was the lack of menus on the tables, and tables were not cleared but other that that it was great

When the sun is shining, sitting outside Wilfs is a nice experience, with the view of Hawkshead brewery alongside. Good coffee and cake, pleasant service and value. Big cycle shop nearby. Perhaps not obvious to find...needs better signage from nearby village centre.

We often call in to Wilf's for lunch or a cuppa and a cake, and it is always great. It's a nice, relaxed and friendly café with something for everyone - kids, vegetarians, hungry men! The food is prepared unbelievably quickly and always seems fresh with nice salads and veggies. They just seem to have it sorted here - good... More

Sometimes you need a cafe not for a meal but for help as they tend to be part of the local community. Not only did they give me directions to a local business I needed but on my return as they were about to close they still had time and patience to make me an expresso coffee. The menu looked... More

At Wilf's Cafe you'll get great food with local ingredients. They cook bread on the premises which is excellent. I love a place that has the courage not to offer chips! The food is tasty and well presented. We'll be back whenever we pass this way.

I love Wilf's and have visited many times, usually for lunch, but also for breakfast or just tea and excellent home-made cake. They have lots of GF options and hearty food such as interesting salads, huge doorsteps of cheese on toast with chilli on top, and daily specials which can include lentil soup, fish pie and the like. In the... More
