Our first visit to Merienda, and won't be our last. Fun place to visit with very good food and wine. Enjoyable evening and looking forward to our next trip.

Choice of barista or filter coffee; regular filter coffee unusual flavour. Cakes a bit overblown. If you want a scone, don't leave it too late in the day.

We are a Merienda as a large group for dinner. The service was brilliant & food delicious. We have previously eaten here, but normally for breakfast, it's always fantastic.

Very quiet Sunday in early November. We were almost the only people in and while many places might close we were given the full treatment...courteous and friendly. Superb menu, not overly complicated but enough there to give you a real dilemma over choice. Super tasty...More

We stumbled across this friendly establishment on an Impromptu Friday night out in Keswick. They had a cancelled booking of over 30 people so we were lucky to get a table in here without a reservation. Lovely food and service with a smile. You may...More

We’ve visited Merienda several times, and the food and drink are consistently good. However, while some staff are friendly others are not - we don’t like to be laughed at when asking for some water. We’ll be back, but won’t assume we’ll get a good...More

Merienda is a cafe restaurant located in the centre of Keswick. We provide a range of fare from coffee cakes and sandwiches to our eclectic evening menu, wine and beer. Our food is well travelled, our aim has been to have an interesting but simple menu using seasonal ingredients drawing influences from around the world. The food is not fussy or contrived, just delicious and wholesome and served in a lovely atmosphere. We are serious about our coffee and use Monmouth beans which changes seasonally to provide our customers with their daily fix. Take away coffee is available at all times. Dog friendly
