The OWNERS of a Kendal cafe received a warm welcome to their new location in town.

The popular Method Cafe, on Stramongate, is owned and operated by Becks Newton and Scarlett Meyer, and received a touching outpouring of support when they moved to Kendal.

The couple, who both love to exercise, previously ran Fell Crossfit’s cafe on the Beezon Road Trading Estate before moving to new premises last year.

Before setting up on their own, they worked in well-known restaurants in South Cumbria including Homeground, Windermere, and Chesters by the River, Skelwith Bridge. Becks grew up in Windermere, while Scarlett is from Warrington.

“I’ve always worked in industry and worked my way up gradually to become head chef at Homeground in Windermere, but we always dreamed of having our own home,” says Becks.

“The method is to eat during the day and we like to put as much thought and care into what we do during the day as others would in the evening. We don’t see there should be a difference in service, we believe the food should have the same respect, care, love and attention. It should be a great experience and you should be well supported.

Becks and Scarlett regularly hit the towns for brunch and say they want to bring some of the city cafe culture to Kendal.

She added: “We just like to cook the food we love and make it super tasty with a little quirk or something a little interesting here and there and give people a variety of choices and a good experience.

“We just try to make sure our dishes are creative, unique and unique.”

Both men say they have been impressed with the support they have received since moving to the new location in November.

“We’ve been as busy as we’d like and we want to keep pushing that and maintaining that consistency.

“Something we would like to do is consider applying to the council for outdoor seating ready for the summer.

“We’ve had a really good response to Method so far and we really appreciate it. We’re excited for the future and moving forward with the business.
