George and Meera welcome you to Merienda.

As the owners of The Honest Lawyer, Cockermouth and Ivy House, Braithwaite, we have many years’ experience creating divine menus with top notch seasonal local produce. We are passionate about feeding our visitors excellent food that has been cooked with care and attention.

Located in stunning Keswick, our light bites, coffees, cakes and more substantial meals are sure to satisfy even the hungriest traveller. From satisfying American diner-style food and flavoursome global dishes to occasional home-cooked Indian cuisine, there’s something for everyone in our welcoming cafe.

Merienda is a Keswick institution. Conveniently located in the middle of the bustling market square, our much-loved cafe is the perfect bolt hole for busy wanderers. If the aroma of freshly brewed coffee doesn’t draw you inside, the delightful scent of baked goods just might.

Our breakfasts are legendary and believe us when we say there’s something for every palate. Make Merienda your first stop before a day on the fells and you’ll be full for hours.

We are famous for our ground coffee and dare you to find a better brew anywhere else. Add a scrumptious scone or a bowl of warming homemade soup and you’ve got the perfect excuse to leave the beaten track and watch the rest of the world pass by. If you’re a little bit peckish, check out our lovingly prepared lunches that are a riot of colour and goodness. A little bit healthy and a little bit naughty.

Keswick is special at night, and so is Merienda. Our evening menu is perfect for those that crave a casual, tasty dining experience with a twist. Pair one of our heavenly mains with a cheeky tipple and finish with a sweet and sticky pud: what more could you ask for?
