This eatery has two premises about 20 metres from one another. One is a sit-down restaurant and the other is a take-away with limited seating. I've used the latter frequently and for lunch I would go nowhere else in Kendal. The food is almost entirely veggie. For a bit over a fiver you can get a slice of quiche (choice... More

Gorgeous food. Today's vegetable soup was fantastic. Alas, too far say and lunch times aren't long enough !

Great selection of very interesting dishes. My beetroot and feta warm salad with a spicy lentil and mushroom side bowl was a highlight. Soups were excellent. Healthy food, friendly service, excellent coffee. Want to return to try more dishes.

Popped in during a busy Saturday lunchtime, had to wait 10 mins for a table which is a good sign. Interesting menu, could eat here daily as there was lots to choose from. I tried Cabanos - yummy! All the family tried different things. Best part was not getting fleeced on the way out.

We walked past this place on Saturday and it was so full we guessed it must be good - we were right. Soup and a sandwich on a cold winters Saturday, perfect. There are many options on the menu including hot and cold sandwiches, 3 different soups and a specials board. We didn't try the cakes but they looked good!

This place is a good find & was very busy on our visit. We had a lovely bowl of cauliflower soup, with a nice chunk of bread, & we also shared a coronation chicken bun, served with salad & crisps. Service was good & staff were friendly. Looked like some nice cakes too, but we were a bit full, maybe... More

Head off the beaten track to the bottom of the alley for The Canteen, right on the corner, and step up into the bright space for comfort food with a middle eastern style - if you want - or just lashings of Lakeland cakes, flapjacks etc. No Babaganoush was on offer at the time of our visit so we had...
