The Joshua Tree is a small family run delightful fully licensed Café & Bistro. Located in the Cumbrian market town of Kendal, known as the gateway to the Lake District. We are nestled in one of Kendal’s oldest yards within a traditional 17th century building with rustic exposed beams & a cosy log fire. You can expect a warm and friendly welcome from Nick & Shelley along with their team, with an informal relaxed atmosphere you'll struggle to drag yourself away. When the sun shines we have a lovely sunny courtyard to catch those summer rays but if the rain pours our log fire inside is perfect to cosy up to.

All our food is locally sourced, freshly prepared & handmade by us. We are passionate about producing good wholesome seasonal Food cooked with a minimum of fuss.

By day serving hearty breakfasts, snacks and Bistro style lunches with delicious daily specials making the most of local seasonal produce, followed by a trip to the naughty corner !
