Top rated in Kendal. Don't let the random name put you off.
We both got the Peruvian inspired hot ciabatta. Super tasty. We both devoured ours.
Service was great. All the staff were really friendly and helpful.
Lots of seating, outdoors, indoors and upstairs.
We actually didn't get a coffee coz it was a scorcher of a day, but I overheard others ordering and raving about their coffee. You also are able to choose your blend, something I've never been asked before.
Definitely recommended this spot 😁👍

The morning started off with promise: a spontaneous stop near kendal from a drive in the foothills of my Scottish lineage. Anyway after a fantastic stay nearby this was on top of my radar.
Arrived with a smile and was welcomed with a familiar hello, seating was plentiful and the aesthetic of the cafe looked to be right up our street.
I ordered the avocado and poached eggs breakfast - which also states it comes with bacon. It arrived looking really nice, missing bacon which I asked about only to be told it was a "printing error". Sorry this is not a printing error but a typing error and should be highlighted at the point of ordering. However I wasn't too fussed as the meal looked lovely. It ends with the look, as I tasted it I couldn't help think bland and possibly too much lime but couldn't quite put my finger on it... anyway I hailed a waitress over to my aid, who seemed more than happy until I mentioned I wasn't happy. I asked to replace this with the scrambled eggs and salmon. While it appeared the server was attempting to fix it, perhaps a managers decision took over. I was brought back scrambled eggs on toast. These were nice and I was happy-ish. Until it came to the bill. We were charged for the avocado meal, which I questioned and missed (lost in translation I think) the response, as my girlfriend told me they'd not changed the cost to reflect the replacement meal.
The food did seem very nice and this is purely a reflection of the service.

Very friendly staff, welcoming and all seemed to happy to help. Food portions are good for the price. We ordered a Jacket Potato and a Pannini and they were soooo tasty. Fresh, hot, full of flavour. Welcoming atmosphere. Coffee here is also really good with the option or 3 different blends. Will be back again next time we're in rhe Lakes.

Lovely smoothies and tasty tray bake - which was big enough to share! Most of the staff were friendly and welcoming too. Our biggest issue was that people were allowed to smoke on the tables outside and, as the doors were open, we had to endure the smell inside which wasn't pleasant.

We dropped in for a coffee and scone mid morning and we're very pleased with the service and taste of the coffee. So pleased we went back for lunch. However we didn't think our Yorkshire Pudding wrapped Cumberland Sausage was really that tasty TBH. Service was still good though.
