This is a great little hidden gem, close to Finkle Street but tucked away down a narrow yard. Often busy at lunchtime, the homemade soups particularly are always excellent.

Always busy and justifiably so, expect to queue at lunchtime and busy periods but it's worth it. The menu is diverse and pretty unique, I've only eaten hash to compare with this in the USA, and everything is good. I'm giving 4 stars overall because...More

This eatery has two premises about 20 metres from one another. One is a sit-down restaurant and the other is a take-away with limited seating. I've used the latter frequently and for lunch I would go nowhere else in Kendal. The food is almost entirely...More

Hello, not at the moment in the food shop as it has an open prep area but we are opening a extra seating / eating area in a week or so and dogs will be welcome in there.
