Good choice for chilling after going around the downtown in the afternoon. There was a good selection of tea with different herb and nice sweet to go with. This is a typical atmosphere of small town coffee shop I was expecting for

All 4 of us thoroughly our lunch from a great menu, nothing run of the mill about this, some difficult choices to be made. My only regret was that I was so full I did't get to sample any of the cakes!

A good menu with Asian influences -a welcome alternative to 'pub grub' menus elsewhere! Good service, reasonably priced wines and drinks! Pleasant and attentive service.

Lovely, quaint dinner or lunch spot. Healthy plates were a welcoming surprise after the usual English pub fare. The special of cod wrapped in Parma ham was scrumptious. Easy to eat gluten free or vegetarian too.

Merienda is a cafe restaurant located in the centre of Keswick.

We provide a range of fare from coffee cakes and sandwiches to our eclectic evening menu, wine and beer. Our food is well travelled, our aim has been to have an interesting but simple menu using seasonal ingredients drawing influences from around the world. The food is not fussy or contrived, just delicious and wholesome and served in a lovely atmosphere.

We are serious about our coffee and use Monmouth beans
which changes seasonally to provide our customers with their daily fix.

Take away coffee is available at all times.

Dog friendly
