We have never been disappointed with the food here, it is freshly made street type food served in a stylish building.

A delightful friendly cafe, with the added bonus of being dog friendly. The food was delicious too! We arrived about 2.30pm and the staff were so friendly and accomodating, asking us if we needed a water bowl for our dog. We had the Shabby burger, goats cheese toastie and the christmas toastie, all the food was hot and delicious. This was then followed by brownies and the best ice cream I have tasted for some time. The cafe is also
licensed, I can thoroughly recommend the Shabby Scholar.

No wonder you are always fully booked!
Shabby Scholar has to be one of the best places to eat and socialise in Carlisle. My cousin and I brought our second cousin from Italy here and my cousins 1 year old son. From the moment we entered we were greeted with open arms, the staff really couldn’t have been more helpful in seating us and the baby. We were served quickly and our drinks were brought out very promptly. Food was perfect! Thanks for the immaculate service. ❤️
