Visited today for the first time since the fire in the canteen. They've made a lovely soup kitchen in the old cafe area at the bottom with a limited but varied and interesting menu. Cakes are still beautifully made and there's filter coffee or tea...More

This is a fantastic little place which does the most delicious salads with amazing breads and great hot dishes such as the lamb hotpot I enjoyed. The soups are to die for. The cakes looked amazing. I wouldn't have hesitated to give it 5 stars...More

The food here is fantastic and very reasonable. I guess it keeps the price down as the cutlery and crockery are all throw away. Not a place to go for a long leisurely meal but wonderful food.

This is easily the classiest cafe in Kendal. The food is excellent with a good choice of heathy and vegetarian dishes, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and even though the cafe is hidden away there are frequently people queuing patiently outside.

Hello, not at the moment in the food shop as it has an open prep area but we are opening a extra seating / eating area in a week or so and dogs will be welcome in there.
