Although down an unprepossessing side street in the town this place must be searched out.
The entrance and bakery downstairs lead up to a very welcoming coffee house on the first floor.
Attentive staff made us very welcome, the menu is supplemented by daily specials on the board.
If you have travelled on the continent and wondered why the coffee is never the same in the UK you will not be disappointed at the Coffee Kitchen. Obviously someone has gone to great lengths to research and refine the brewing process, great coffee coupled with a good selection of homemade breads and cakes etc.
One slight suggestion to improve the general atmosphere, perhaps some air conditioning? I know that when we visited it was very hot and humid but I am sure that the customers and staff would have appreciated some fresher air!
Living just down the road I understand that the Cumbrian weather is not always so extreme, just a suggestion for your ten year plan!

That's a lovely review. Thanks. Yeah, it was a bit hot that week. Air-con is in the pipeline but as you say - this is Cumbria!

I discovered this place in Cockermouth in between business meetings and oh what a discovery! This coffee shop is off the main road, and don't be put off by the entrance. Go up the stairs and you get yourself seat.The downstairs area is the home made bread department.Service was speedy and efficient - and more importantly, the coffee was great. They also had various selection of leaf teas and home baking.The scone and home made Jam was to die for.Its got to be the best coffee shop I have visited.I will sampling again when I am in the area.Yes and it also has a perfect WIFI reception.Just a wonderful experience .

I highly recommend stopping by the coffee kitchen- whether for a quick coffee, a relaxed lunch or for a place to read a good book with fantastic food! My husband and I have been many times, and it is one of the main coffee shops we take friends and family who visit. They frequently update their menu of coffee and food and the staff are always welcoming.
