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

Popped in for a coffee and a late brunch and certainly wasn't dissapointed. Great service, food was tasty and overall good value for money. Would definately recommend if you are in the area

We went last night with a couple of friends and all we're very impressed with the food and wine but we were very disappointed with the way we were crammed into the upstairs room with a two large parties. We could hardly hear ourselves talking and were uncomfortably seated making it impossible to even move around to access the toilets.
We will be returning but would ask for a table downstairs where the atmosphere seemed very calm and more relaxed.

We have been visiting this cafe and the sister one in Cockermouth for years - the main menu remains great, staff lovely but the recent change to mass produced over coloured cakes is a big disappointment. Previous cakes were nice, different and attractive now just like any other cafe.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review Elspeth, however i would like to point out that the cakes are not mass produced. They have and always will be made on site. Please take a look at our Instagram or Facebook page and you will see the wide range that our new pastry chef has been doing. You will see they are certainly not cakes that would be mass produced and not like any other cafe...

Last time we reviwed this cafe, we gave it 5 stars.........this time, we were disappointed. We ordered at the counter, the waitress was sullen, we didn't get the minted water that we got last time, my husband said, the bottles were lined up with mint in them behind the counter...but they were not offered...we gave 5 stars last time because of the water and pleasant service...this time it was DULL.
