Environmental Sustainability Institute Café

Located at the top of the campus, The Environmental Sustainabilitity Institute (ESI) Café is a quieter space than the Lower Stannary and, ideal for small meetings or hosting visitors. There is also seasonal outdoor seating for those lovely sunny days.

We serve:

  • Fresh Coffee
  • Sandwiches
  • Paninis
  • Cakes
  • Snacks

Fairtrade is important to us which is why we serve Peros espresso based coffees and teas, along with a choice of Fairtrade snacks.

From 11.30am during week days the café serves a wide choice of light meals, snacks and treats; freshly-made salad boxes and toasted tasca paninis; homemade, vegetarian soup, bowl food (think chilli, bolognaise or curry) and jacket potatoes.  Local suppliers Rowes and Pipins of Penryn supply the traditional pasties and a range of sandwiches and baguettes. *

Where possible our disposables are environmentally friendly, with disposable cutlery made from cornstarch and packaging that is compostable, biodegradable or recyclable.
