Lovely decor, ethical produce, great for small children too - better vegan/veggie options needed

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... read 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

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

Tasty chicken and pork burritos with excellent sides of salsa, salad, guacamole and sour cream served in rustic cafe setting. A very welcome lunch after walking around the park and biomes.

We often bring a group of disabled people to the Eden Project, excellent facilities, easy access. Plenty of seating available. The choice of food is healthy, locally sourced and we have never had any complaints!

We were on holiday for a few days in Cornwall and needed a light lunch. The first café we came across happened to be the Eden café so we gave it a try. We ordered the soup of the day and loved it - it was tasty, hot and soon served with warm bread - a definite winner. And the... More

Good selection of hearty warm foods for a cold day. Vegetarian options and lighter options so something for everyone. Great feel, full plate, set me up for the day and didnt empty my pocket! Would go again in a heartbeat.

I visited the Eden cafe last Saturday with my daughter, we had a light lunch, it was freshly made and really tasty, the service was good and quick as it was really busy. I will visit again
