Never ever miss an opportunity to visit Baba Ganoush when we visit Kendal. Love the Canteen it's so casual and relaxed. Choice of soup is unbelievable, salads amazing, hot dishes outstanding. Have been going here for a few years now and it keeps getting better. Lovely staff brilliant atmosphere.

Been looking forward to trying this place for a while. Gotta be totally honest and say I was underwhelmed, did not live up to the hype. The queuing system was bizarre. There were no menus and it was hard to work out how things worked. Was forced into buying meal I was not happy with due to pressure and no... More

BRILLIANT PLACE TO EAT. Whether you go to the `deli' service or sit down service further down the alley the food is fabulous. Been here with a vegan and a carnivore at the same time and both were very happy with the food (as was I)! The quiche and choice of 5 salads is an excellent deal and I can... More

A perfect soup for lunch. Bacon, lentils, cider & dijon. Lots of lovely vegetables. Very filling and very tasty. I had a chunk of sourdough bread with it - just perfect. Will definitely eat here again.

Fantastic. The food is really, really good. All home cooked and xceptional quality. Such a variety and cooked fresh for that day, once it's gone it's gone. A real gem.

Another visit & another lovely soup for lunch. It was a difficult choice as 3 soups on offer all sounded good. We went for the white onion with Parmesan & cider, this was so tasty & a nice chunk of granary bread was a lovely accompaniment. The menu also looks good. We will be back to try something else!
