I really look forward to a Saturday shopping trip with a Baba Ganoush lunch. Delicious salad boxes and soups. Ideal for a vegan/veggie/meat eating mixed party. Not glam but functional eating.

Lovely place for lunch. Varied local menu. Well presented and good attention to detail. Decent wine list and reasonable prices. Delicious Welsh rarebit. Hot roast beef sandwich was great too. Chips were double fried making them extra good.

We were looking for a place to have lunch on a busy shopping day in Kendal and came across this little gem. The service was exceptional and the girl who served us had such a warm smile - we were made very welcome! The menu looked so delicious it was difficult to choose. I had the fish finger sandwich which... More

If you like quirky flavoursome food here is the place. The portion sizes are wicked and I've never had a bad experience. I just wish the place was open on a evening and on Sunday! !!

I come here every so often for a treat, the food is fab, I recommend the quiche with five salads, choose a portion of quiche from the days selection and up to five salads from their extensive selection, always pleased with the quality of food from here, oh and the cakes are awesome. Always service with a smile :-)

Having visited the lakes for the last 6 years, we have eaten at Baba Ganoush every year and had always enjoyed our visits. This last year, we went twice - and were very disappointed both times. My wife was served a stew which we were told was vegetarian, but which had bacon in it! I was served the wrong sandwich... More

A weekly visit to the Del department recently has been a highlight. I love the soups, the vegetarian mezze and the lamb hot pot. Warm, welcoming,reasonably priced delicious food. What more can you ask for?

Having seen Babaganoush reviewed on Trip Advisor we decided to give it a try one Saturday afternoon whilst in Kendal doing a bit of Xmas shopping. Calling in about 1.30pm we luckily managed to get the last free table. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Although there was a bit of a wait for our food that was understandable given... More
