“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This was my second visit. The staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing is to much trouble. The food is excellent quality and I can recommend the salads. The bread is baked fresh daily. And great selection of teas and coffees.

“Delicious coffee!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Stopped for coffee and was not disappointed. It was delicious! Strong brew and plenty of options. Disappointed that the blend we drank was not on sale. Well worth a stop for the coffee alone.

“Off the beaten track, but great find.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

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!
