Description: 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

Visited as part of a party of seven for breakfasts. Took 10min or so for our order to be taken, which is fine, but it then took a further 20 minutes for the first drinks to arrive. With the last arriving as we were eating. How seven breakfasts can arrive before teas and juice I dont know. Service was friendly enough but they seemed very harried considering the place was only half full..

Had seen reviews on Tripadviser so looked out for this restaurant on recent visit to Keswick. We booked and I think we needed to as it was very busy. The food was nice and a bit different to the Keswick normal. As there are bare walls and floors there is nothing to soak up the noise so we were a bit deafened at times. All the staff were very pleasant, the food and drinks were most acceptable! and the price was good.

We ate here on two evenings and had really good food both times. Staff were very friendly and helpful and they were able to accommodate my wife's diet restrictions (dairy, gluten) with no problem. My top pick would be the lamb ribs, but everything we had was good, and the bill was pretty reasonable.

How many cafés are there in Keswick ? Seemingly a kazillion! Like pin the tail on the donkey blindfolded we came up with Merienda's, we picked the long straw!
Delightful table service. The two of us sat on what looked like a quaint cute old school table. My wife's soup was " butternut squash and orange" .. Between slurps I heard " taste this", always a good sign of good tucker! I had the golden oldie potato in a jacket with smoked chicken , avocado and two smokin salads. Very nice thank you. You gotta try this place, they are trying hard and succeeding.
