Met up with some friends from out of town so wanted somewhere easy for them to find and also a local rather than a chain coffee shop. It's a distinctive old fashioned black and white building on Highgate, the main street through the centre of Kendal. Lots of seating both up and down stairs, and outside. Quirky old building with wonky floors, and old wooden furniture. Good selection of coffees, teas and food to choose from. Friendly and efficient staff. We had a slight mix up with our order as the waitress obviously didn't quite hear what we said. Not a big issue to sort it out though. happy to have dogs in as well. You can also buy loose tea and coffee from their large selection to take away with you.

Absolutely loved this tea and coffee shop. The coffee was delicious and the almond slice is fabby. The building is so old and traditional and has such a warm feeling to it. The staff were very friendly and we were only in Kendal for 4 days, and visited 3 times.

An amazing range of different coffees were available and served in different ways including cold brew which is very unusual and better tasting than the usual 'iced coffee'. Wacky building with the tea room extending over many levels.

This old-fashioned coffee shop is one of the best cafés I have visited. Though the prices are quite high, they're indicative of the quality and worth every penny.

The staff were friendly & polite and kindly accomodated our party of 10.

Definitely visit if you're looking for tea or food in Kendal.
