Arrived in the pouring rain with two unhappy children and were so well looked after. Delicious coffee and food, fabulous atmosphere and just really kind staff. Thank you!

Good day kol1 Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts on Brew Brothers. I'm not sure if you actually had a meal or not, as you said you 'changed your mind' so I am puzzled as to the 1 star for food,...More

On a short stay in the lake district. Visited this cafe for Breakfast as didn't fancy the hotel breakfast for the fourth day in a row. Friendly staff. Would have preferred table service but did not have to queue for too long. Nice coffee in...a good sized mug. Food was very nice. in the centre of town so easy to get to.More

Absolutely amazing breakfast! Delicious smoked haddock and hollandaise, wonderful full breakfast! We'd done our research and chose this based on previous reviews. Excellent choice! Service and food were wonderful. It's worth the slightly higher price for the amazing quality of ingredients and superb food! Give...this place a visit!More

Found this online while staying at Kendal for a break. We look for something f with veg / vegan options , parking and with a good review or two. This seemed to fit the bill so gave it a shot. Small place very busy. Looked...organised. Dog friendly. Got seated at a high table , checked the menu. Lots of options inc vegan and veg. Hubby ordered vegan breakfast and black coffee. I got vegan porridge and earl grey tea. Took about 35 - 40 mins but portion sizes generous but not massive. Hot and very tasty. Good atmosphere attentive staff, not overbearing or overly fussy, did come and check if food was ok and cleared table quickly. Clean and tidy, it was a constant queue of customers and a lot of them did get turned away because there wasnt any spare seats 11.00 am.More

Normally love brothers but was disappointed. Newer menu has much less choice, ordered a Brie and caramelised onion toastie which was far from caramelised onion, coleslaw tasteless, loved like no care had been taken in preparing the meal and definitely not worth the £10 paid....Service was ok.. quite a rude member of staff taking orders who clearly didn't want to be there. Such a shame.More

The food is good and we loved the menu, lots of interesting choices, and a good service. It’s a bit eclectic and very casual but we liked that. You approach the counter once you have decided what you want and you are then asked to...pay. No problem there. Our only criticism is when you pay on card you are asked on the chip and pin machine how much tip you want to add. You get various choices and to be fair one of those is ‘No Thanks’. The problem is how can you offer a tip which is supposed to be for good service when you haven’t yet been served? We felt it was rude and presumptuous to ask in the first place. If you enjoyed your meal and the service just leave a tip before you leave.More

We love Brew Brothers! The atmosphere, the decor, the dog friendly policy, the food, the coffee (superb Farrer's - roasted a couple of miles away) and the service. We had to wait 20 minutes (as advised when ordering), but that meant it was fresh when...it arrived! Still a Kendal must!More
