The place was well decorated, nice place for lunch, the food overall was good however the falafel was not cooked with right ingredients. It should have chick peas rather than split peas or rather moon daal. Nevertheless, the food and service was good.

Hi there, and thanks for your review. I'm not sure what I can say other than we only use chickpeas to make our Falafel which we partially blitz in a food processor before combining them with the other ingredients. We do serve a spiced lentil dish as part of our vegetarian mezze, but this isn't used to make the Falafel,... More

Only just discovered this place and what a gem it is.... The quality of the food, cakes, meats, deli are outstanding. Lots of drink options, home made soups and lovely breads which I believe are from the artisan bread shop opposite (also worth a visit) My only gripe on this visit was that there were a couple of times where...

Had lunch here today with a couple of colleagues; very friendly atmosphere and a very different menu to where I normally go, but very tasty.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with two of my daughters and grandson this summer. Great selection in make-up your own salad boxes and loved the raspberry and almond tart for pudding. Wonderful selection of food enough to cater for the majority of tastes.

First of all don't be shy if there isn't a table free. Ask to share if there are spare seats! We had the barbecue meat soup at the weekend and it was out of this world. The quiche and salad box deals are great value too. It can get busy but don't be put off. One of the best places... More

Slightly tucked away but well worth seeking out. The deli is well stocked with great food and take out lunch options and the canteen is, I think, the best cafe in Kendal town centre right now.

This is the best kept secret in Kendal. The food is so tasty. Not anything like the local fare! No slice of tomato or mass produced coleslaw there. Nothing but the best and the flavours are awesome. To top it, they have a lovely cafe further down the lane serving delicious food and drink.
