Cornish Coasts launches new café and farmshop to serve local customers throughout the
Last month, family-run business, Cornish Coasts hosted a party to celebrate the official opening of their new farm shop and café which is now open to customers all year round.
Situated up on The Atlantic Highway, just outside of Bude, with stunning rural sea views, the farm shop and café has been built on the site of the old barn and garage and reflects months of hard work for the family.
On the night they treated guests to a sample of their tasty menu, which offers an excellent choice of freshly cooked, locally sourced food.
Already becoming well known for their breakfasts (served 8am – 12 noon) the menu also offers a wide choice of lunches and main meals, as well as their regular specials, such as fish and chips and handmade pizza.
Also there on the evening were some of the farm shop’s local suppliers, sampling everything from Wrecking Coast gin to the ever so tasty Popti biscuits. Coffee was provided on the night by Cornico Coffee Company and guests were able to sample local cake-maker Jacky’s Cakes.
Pormorla Pasties served their delicious pasties and Eat The Smoke launched their new Jambalaya meal kits at the event.
Having a browse round the farmshop where they sell everything from seasonal veg, to the best meats, cheeses and ales North Cornwall and Devon have to offer you can tell there’s a real local ethos to this family-run business.
Speaking to owners, and sisters-in-law Liz and Karen, they are extremely proud of the local nature to this new part of their venture:
‘So often we had people coming in and asking for things we couldn’t cater for. Both holidaymakers, passers by and most importantly locals. It felt crazy to us to be sending them away so we decided to do something about it. We’re now really proud that we can be open for local people all year round, and welcome them in for a drink, or bite to eat.’ says Karen.
And it doesn’t stop at serving locals adds Liz ‘We’ve always loved buying local and you won’t find a better selection elsewhere, it’s a real passion of ours to support other local businesses, just as they support us. It’s an amazing to feel part of such a great community.’
Head Chef Stephen Honey supported this, adding ‘people care about food provenance. Cooking with great local produce just makes my job more enjoyable, cooking with the best ingredients, and serving people that appreciate the extra effort.’
In fact the team hope, having had a few months to fine tune their offer before the launch, that when people visit Cornish Coasts, the food and service will speak for itself and customers will want to come time and again.
So if you fancy a coffee, a quick bite to eat or just want to browse, we highly recommend a visit to Cornish Coasts soon.
