“Did not relish lunch here!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Our visit to Relish for a light lunch didn't live up to all the previous reviews. Sandwiches and baguettes, and special of the day that we had were OK, but nothing exceptional. The cappuccino was definitely on the small side and second rate. The sticky feel on the table surface did nothing to add to our lunch experience. We live locally and regularly eat out at lunch time and evenings, this was certainly a most disappointing lunch, for all three of us, particularly following such glowing reviews? Just cannot understand how it is so highly rated? Sandwiches/baguettes from Greggs are far better, and their cappuccino is way, way better!

“Go-to place for worktime lunch”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I started with the beef sandwiches but was lured by the regular hot meals such as Chili or Pork Noodles. I go there normally every lunchtime and find the food excellent and the service friendly.

“Always a good meal!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I know a few good places to eat in Kendal, but ultimately after my first meal here I always end up at Relish.
They have a fantastic range of soups and sandwiches, the special of the day however is consistently my favourite.
I am inclined to love any café/restaurant that sells Belvoir elderflower presse, and Relish is one of them! They sell a variety of nice drinks and treats and snacks, one that I enjoyed recently was the tiffin/rocky road type cake made by the owner's wife, so not only is it good but it's homemade.
You can either takeaway your food or sit in, perfect for lunch with friends or family.
The owner himself is a lovely guy with good jokes, and the staff are also very pleasant.
It has a very accessible location, close to the shopping centre. Always a good meal!
