Lovely experience

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

Have eaten here a number of times and the meals and cakes (particularly the cakes) are excellent. There are toys and games for the youngsters and a calm atmoshere. Chill out and enjoy

Wanted a coffee and cake, so decided to go to the Eden Project Cafe in St Austell. Although almost 7 miles from the Eden Project, this is still part of the same company and once you are in its has the same feel as the Eden Project. It was a cold day and my Mum and I ordered a coffee... More

lovely cafe for a spot of lunch next to the amazing open fire, very spacious inside staff were lovely, food was one of the best meals out I've had in a while and it's not overpriced rubbish its fresh locally sourced food. I'd definitely recommend and will return when I'm next in the area.

A café with a difference. If you want a different experience try this café in the centre of St. Austell. If you value the environment and the work of the Eden Project this is the place for you. The food is fresh and locally sourced, it also tastes lovely. Sit by the open fire on a cold day, change a... More

We visited the Eden Project and was off course amazed and in awe of it's magnificence but it did not stop there. We had lunch at the Eden Project Cafe and each ad a pie and chips and this turned out to be the best decision after that of going to the Eden Project! Good quality and absolutely delicious! A...

We have some very good friends that live in St Austell and when we visit they cannot always get time off from work. So they suggested that we should take a walk to shopping centre as there are several places that do a good breakfast and high on their list was the Eden Project Cafe - whose proceeds go towards...
