Delicious food and the portions are spot on

Had chips and side salad here and friend had a cheese and pickle sandwich. Both meals were delicious and portion were satisfying. A combination very rare to find now days! Unfortunately the service wasn't that good. A couple of older ladies beside me had ordered toast for two. It came out barely... read more

An amazing choice of good wholesome food! We were stunned! Not a burger in sight! Good vegetarian options, and the salads that the mains were served with were utterly delicious. Not badly priced either.

Taking a visit to the Eden project was something beautiful I have never seen before, highly intelligent construction. However, what I didn't expect was the quality of the food that was made. It worked like a canteen however the food tasted better than I expected. I would recommend for everyone who is planning to visit to try it and see... More

Situated between the two biomes at the Eden project, there is a choice of either a coffee shop with cakes or a cafe with coffee, cakes, soft drinks and hot food. I had the salmon which had just been cooked, there was a choice of three salads included in the price, I had all three. Excellent value for money (just... More

The rather nice previous menu has gone to be replaced by something bland and limited. Prices have rocketed. We visit now and again as it is one of few acceptable places in the horror of St Austell. I ended up with just a coffee. What happened to the lovely sharing platters, the mini fish and chips, the veggie options...really you... More

I go to Eden Project Cafe regularly as they meet my requirements for something vegan. Their hummus and spicy butternut squash sandwich is lovely, served with healthy salad leaves. Yet to try veggie burger (vegan option). Veggie breakfast a little disappointing, one egg, no veggie sausage or tofu with spinach and an anaemic potato cake. The decor is wonderful and... More

Beautiful and interesting, was a bit expensive, but worth it. We ate in the Med biome restaurant where the food was lovely and it was quieter than the main food area.

The handouts were pretty unfair-different staff gave different amounts, some too little, some too much and some just right. The burritos we had were lovely but were all different sizes although they were all the same price. The prices were pretty unreasonable as well. However, apart from this the food was very nice. The chicken burritos we had were filled... More

We had read lots of reviews of the Eden Project before we went and many said that the food was dear. Don't believe it! We took our own as we have two seven year olds and didn't want to end up with a second mortgage. We couldn't resist getting a scone though; we were in Cornwall! The prices were about... More
