Description: Just like our coffee, when we decided to open our kitchen, we set out to find the most incredible local, seasonal produce we could. Our search for suppliers began with tracking down the best free-range eggs from local grass-fed chickens we could find. Ever since then, we've been knocking on farm doors and creaking allotment gates to source more incredible local produce and create scrumptious dishes. The result is a fresh and changing menu with new twists on old classics covering breakfast, elevenses, lunch and even a spot of afternoon tea, or coffee of course if you prefer!

“Best Coffee in Cornwall maybe even the UK!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Have been to Espressini a few times now and feel it is time to tell everyone about Falmouth's best kept secret! The coffee is just superb, wonderful relaxed atmosphere with tasteful vintage fixtures. If you find yourself in Falmouth, you must go to Espressini! As well as fabulous coffees they also have delightful cakes and other fare to tempt you. I cannot wait to go again. If you haven't been yet, you simply must!

“Best coffee in Falmouth.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

This end of Killigrew Street has alot to offer in terms of coffeeshops and eateries, but Espressini is by far the best. I completed my degree down in Falmouth and have since moved to Brighton - still finding it difficult to find a place with the same charm and great coffee! Simple, clean decor and a host of artisan coffees from a marvellous Flat White (my favourite) to V60-style filter.

For me, Espressini was a great working environment and saw most of the writing of my dissertation. The shop is used and liked by locals and students alike and the staff are always lovely.

Overall, a must if you're in that part of the world and love a good coffee :)

Thank you Rupert for making our holiday in Cornwall fantastic! Great coffee- loved the Chemex brews. Kids loved the frothy milks and choc treats. Best coffee shop in Falmouth.

“Best hot chocolate in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

You can not beat the hot chocolate at Espressinis, made with real chocolate lozenges melted in steaming milk, there's a choice of 4 different chocolates to choose from . I'm told the coffee is the best in town too. The atmosphere is great a real cross section from students via retired people to mums with pushchairs and workers dashing in for takeaways, all get a welcome.
Only downside is the cost at £2.70 it's quite pricey although comparable with some if the chain coffee shops.
Lots of yummy sandwiches and cakes but would like them to be covered not just lying on the counter to be sneezed on!
