About Us

Cafe Terrazzo

Terrazzo was born out of our love of food, especially Mediterranean food. We started our outside catering business twenty five years ago and currently cater for some of the North of England’s finest events. From beautiful weddings to major corporate events, we provide delicious meals and first rate service. Our customers have said so many times, ‘Why don’t you open a restaurant?’ So that’s what we’ve done. Welcome to Terrazzo.

Open 7 days from 9.30am (10.00am on Sundays) until 5pm.  Open Thursday, Friday, Saturday until 9.00pm.

We’ve found in the wedding and event industry that formal dining is on the way out and we are asked more and more for sharing style meals were everyone can try a little of everything and this is what we’ve tried to encompass in our menus. We have extended this to Terrazzo and its lovely to see families ordering sharing platters with children having the opportunity to try dishes they probably wouldn’t try.

At lunchtime we offer the traditional salads and sandwiches with a slight Mediterranean twist and the addition of Spanish, Greek and Italian sharing platters. For those looking a bit closer to home our Lakeland sharing platter is by far our best seller.

In the evening we have tried to encompass the eating style of the Mediterranean with tapas, cicchetti and meze dishes alongside more traditional offerings. The idea is that you can pop along for a drink after work and enjoy a snack or you can have a full blown feast. It’s a relaxed informal style of eating,which is all about the enjoyment of food with great flavours with a chilled atmosphere.

We have a great outside area next to the river, which is a complete suntrap. Breakfast, morning coffee, a delicious lunch or afternoon tea can all be enjoyed watching the world go by. We have some outside heaters and some warm blankets for when the sun goes down

With head chef Alex Goudge at the helm we have lots of ideas going into 2016. We are looking at extending our tapas range and bringing in a range of healthy dishes for those watching the calories. In the Lake District we have some fantastic local suppliers, from Higginsons award winning butchers, Udales Fellbred meats and our local smokehouse, Cartmel Valley fish & game, visitors can enjoy some of the best of Cumbria.
