It is the beginning of the new academic year and with it comes a feast of tasty new grab and go lunch options at Penryn campus. For 2023/24, the Food and Drinks team have opened two new outlets: The Coffee Stop and the Deli Bar.
The Coffee Stop, situated in the Upper Stannary, provides fast coffee, cold drinks, light snacks, sandwiches, fruit, pastries, and confectionary, to keep you energised and on the go. One of the highlights here is their Grumpy Mule coffee, the “Award Winning Coffee that is meticulously sourced, ethically traded and deliciously grumpy” their website claims. Sustainability matters and this is one such new supplier that has been selected after going through the FX Plus responsible procurement process.
In the lower Stannary, the Deli Bar has reopened to serve a variety of fresh, artisan sandwiches prepared daily by our in-house catering team, as well as a range of, snacks, and (of course) more coffee! The ever popular £2 Vegan Hot Pot has returned in the Stannary, and a new vegetarian and vegan menu has launched in the Sustainability Café. This includes seasonal salad dishes.
On Falmouth campus, a new salad bar has opened in the Fox Café and students can now purchase lunchtime hot meal vouchers (£6 per meal) for both the Stannary and Fox Café. Buy ten meal vouchers and get two free meals provided. For more information and to buy, visit the FX Plus Online Store. For those conscious of their climate impact, there are new Klimato menus too and a weekly menu of budget friendly options.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, street food vans are back at the Penryn campus. This includes Bangers on the Go who serve handcrafted burgers, gourmet hotdogs, slow roasted BBQ Pulled pork, vegetarian options, dirty nachos and sides.
There is an abundance of mouth watering meal options to tempt you on campus, be sure to try them and tell us what you think using the feedback kiosks and QR codes in our cafés and Shops. When you tell us what you think of your visit, you will be in with a chance of winning a £50 voucher for a local or online retailer. The prize draw competition runs during term-time only, is open to our entire campus community, and we will be drawing a prize winner every month – best of luck!
