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
