We stumbled on Artisan by accident as it's below the Booth's supermarket in Kendal, but we're glad we did. Service was very quick - a boon at lunchtime when there's shopping to do - and the decor and ambiance is pleasing and comfortable. You can sit in the restaurant part or there are leather tub chairs nearer the entrance, which are very relaxing and informal. Coffee was good, and my steak sandwich with mushrooms was sublime - all sorts of wonderful exotic mushrooms included, and served as an open sandwich with salad that tasted like it had just been picked.
There's also a cheese counter with some lovely cheeses, and fresh 'artisan' style breads which looked delicious.
Overall, a clearly popular place and for good reason, we enjoyed our lunch immensely.
