    After reading the reviews on Cafe Olive, I decided to give it a try when I was in the area. I opted for the Turkish sausage and fried eggs with sourdough toast. It was absolutely fantastic. Its a very cosy place, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

    What a fabulous surprise to find this lovely place on our day trip to Kendal last Thursday. First impressions were excellent: spotlessly clean, welcoming and friendly staff. Food was fantastic too, catering for meat eaters as well as veggies. After deliberating, we selected from the display; we were in a total quandary as there was such a lot of mouth-watering choice. This is a great place for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely return and might even come back up from Liverpool for the day just for a visit to Olive! Thank you!

    Favourite cafe in Kendal. Such tasty authentic Turkish food and lovely, friendly staff. Recommend the friday feast menu, 3 courses for only £18 and a bottle of wine for cheaper!

    The ratings for this cafe are well deserved. Everything we ate was delicious, especially the Sucuk Turkish sausage and the aubergine meze called Kopoglu. The figs and walnuts with clotted cream were a revelation. Coffee was also excellent. Service was a little slow and forgetful - it felt like they were slightly struggling to cope when full, but the staff were all smiling and friendly. Very good value for such high quality, will definitely visit again.

    Stopped in for a coffee late afternoon. Staff were very friendly, welcoming and even though it was approaching closing made us very welcome and didn’t rush. Brownie was very nice

    I happened upon this place whilst shopping with some friends on a rainy Saturday. It's not huge, but the menu is really interesting and the food is very tasty and well presented. Our party tried the soup and borek combo, the roasted aubergine and the lamb ciabatta and it was all delicious. The only disappointment was that we didn't have room to try the desserts, which looked scummy. The service was good too - polite but unobtrusive. As I had to go back to Kendal this week, to collect something I'd ordered from one of the local shops, I called in on my own for some lunch. This time I had a couple of mezze and left room to try the baklava - it was as scrummy as it looked on my first visit!

    Myself and my daughter came here for lunch the atmospheres is relaxing and friendly,we shared the meze between us and they where so tasty and different things to choice from, I then had the smoked salmon on sourdough bread and for 7.50 could not complain at all not only was it very filling but tastiest meal I have had in Kendal for a long time . Would strongly recommend anyone that lives or is visiting Kendal to go here and have the best food ever

    Arriving in Kendal on an ice-cold and very windy morning, I needed a coffee before resuming life. Lots of cafes in the middle of this town but as I passed by Cafe Olive I saw its beautiful and relaxing atmosphere and ventured inside. Great coffee and instead of a cake I had a savoury pastry. Both delicious and lovely service. I'll be returning next time I'm in the town.

    The cafe was quiet today as it was after 2 when I arrived, but the menu was extensive and delicious. I had a couple of mezes and some tasty accompaniments, followed by baklava and ice-cream. All beautifully presented along with a really good cup of decaf coffee. The cafe would be perfect if the seating were more comfortable but as space is tight they have made the best use of the room. Staff are lovely and very attentive. If you enjoy Turkish food, this is excellent.

    We really enjoyed their early evening 'Friday Feast' set menu - free choice of two mezes, four (?) mains to choose from, three desserts. We ate with friends and all of us were struck, not only by the well cooked and well presented dishes, but by the way the flavours were layered and really brought out the best of these fairly traditional dishes. Service was excellent, we'll be back. :-)

    Cafe/ meze place. Good menu choice, reasonable pricing, but slightly out of town. Friendly staff, clean facilities, would recommend a visit

    Lunched here for the first time today with friends. It won’t be the last. From the moment we arrived the staff were superb, indicating how long it would be before a table for four became available and setting us up on the window bar stools with our drinks while we waited. A short time later we were wrestling with decisions. We all declared that we could eat our way through the menu. The Bourek and Mezze plates were a triumph of flavour. The Iskander plate and the Sujuk plate were equally delicious. The service was the epitome of friendly,helpful and professional. When next in Kendal we will work on our promise to eat out way through that menu!!

    My 1st time out with my newborn into kendal centre and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The food looked fabulous and plenty of vegan/ gluten free options. I had the pecan and caramel brownie and soya latte, was lovely! Definitely recommend a visit, whether for coffee n cake or full on food.

    This was our first visit to this great little place, a lovely greeting on arrival and a great menu for vegies and vegans as well as us meaties. The food is different to your run of the mill stuff and its of excellent quality. I'm a meat lover but tried vegie and it was great tasty food. A small place but not overcrowded, enough space for all and on one level so if your infirm no probs.Great freindly service at a great price. In the centre of Kendal so easy access to all areas of the town. We will return!!

    Just had a lovely late lunch at Cafe Olive, picked because reviews mentioned good veggie and vegan options. Mezze platters, soup, aubergine, desserts. All were flavoursome and tasted great. I have forgotten the chef’s name, but compliments go to him for some exquisite cuisine. Sarah and Mary were attentive, helpful in choosing and extremely polite. All in all, a very pleasant stopover!

    So glad we stopped by for lunch after reading the reviews on here. We received a warm and friendly greeting, in fact all the staff were charming. All the food looked fresh and delicious and we had a hard time deciding what to eat. Eventually we chose the soup of the day and a borek. Huge bowl of soup with excellent sourdough bread. The borek was very tasty too. Coffee and mint tea very good. We will definitely find an excuse to return soon.
