A TURKISH inspired cafe offering fresh flavours has opened its doors on Stramongate in Kendal.

Cafe Olive is run by Metin and Paula Keskin and Farit and Sarah Altinyollar, two couples who have known each other for 25 years.

On offer is traditional Turkish tea and coffee, a selection of mezze dishes, sweet treats and hot food - often dishes are suitable for those with dietary requirements and everything is available to takeaway.

“We want people to feel comfortable and very relaxed,” said Sarah. “It’s all part of the Turkish theme - to open your doors and welcome everyone in.”
