Respond to Review of Lakeland Pedlar Wholefood Cafe
by Laura Merryweather
Review: For years The Pedlar has been my favourite Cafe EVER. I am a vegan and I also can't eat wheat or gluten and the Pedlar have brilliant labelling on all thier menus/boards and loads of options for me including gluten free bread - I love nothing more than to sit in the welcoming cafe after a hard day's walking with my soup and a sandwhich! I have also been a raw vegan at times and even then the Pedlar had the most lovely salad on the menu. I love eating there because I don't feel weird! Even more special than usual though... Last week my family and I spent a week in Keswick to celebrate my Dad's 60th. His favourite carrot cake in the world (and he's tried a few!) is the Pedlar's so I had rung ahead a week before to ask if there was any way they could arrange for a whole carrot cake to be put aside as a birthday cake for my Dad. They also phoned me back to say would I like a table booked so that we didn't have to wait and then on the day they were wonderful, they bought out the cake, complete with candles and singing happy birthday and made my Dad's day. Later in the week we were recognised and given a friendly greeting every time. In my opinion, the staff at the Pedlar couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and the food couldn't be better. I love the Pedlar!
