ESI Cafe

Located at the top of Penryn Campus, in the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) building, the café is open to all. It is a quiet space, and ideal for small meetings or hosting visitors.

On weekdays, the café serves a wide choice of light meals, including sandwiches, fresh coffee, cakes and snacks.

Fairtrade is important to us which is why we serve Fairtrade Puro Origin coffee and teas, along with a choice of Fairtrade and locally sourced snacks and refreshments.

Where possible our disposables (cutlery, hot drinks cups and takeaway packaging) are environmentally friendly – either compostable, biodegradable or recyclable.

We encourage you to drink in our cafes or use reusable cups for take away. We have a range of reusable lidded cups for sale and, if you buy one from us, your first hot drink is complimentary.

The sustainability of our products is of great importance to us which is why we try to use local suppliers for our meat, fruit, and vegetables wherever possible in all our units.
