We regularly have lunch at Baba Ganush on a Saturday, or stop for a coffee and a cake, and have never been disappointed. Soups are delicious, as are all the mains that we have tried. It gets very busy over lunchtime, so sometimes need to queue

Both serve high quality home cooked food, not the cheapest but large... More

This bistro is easily the best dining experience in Kendal and has a great atmosphere, friendly and helpful service and great food on an interesting and varied menu. Gets very busy at lunchtimes so go early or late to get a table (no reservations). Enjoy - we always do

Been a few times. Very nice, but perhaps has been better. Last visit it all seemed a bit frantic. Cakes and drinks are very good. We are elevenses people so can't comment on the meals.
