Every day is different, but you’ll always find a fine selection of freshly prepared food, including handmade pastries in the morning, savoury dishes at lunchtime and amazing cakes and scones in the afternoon.

We cater for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free diets. If you have a specific requirement or allergy, please tell a member of staff. 


Lunch is served from around 12 noon. Choose from traditional dishes served in the Eden Kitchen (the side of the café nearest the Mediterranean Biome, on the right) or world dishes in the Eden World Kitchen (the side of the café nearest the Rainforest Biome, on the left).  See the full menu online (pdf)

Sourcing and recycling

We’re proud that over 80% of the money we spend on catering suppliers is spent on businesses in Cornwall and Devon. We use only Cornish meat, dairy and eggs in our on-site cafes – as well as Cornish salad leaves when they are in season. Find out about our sourcing.

We recycle a lot of our food waste in a huge composter that transforms it into a nitrogen-rich soil enhancer for our gardens.

Please bring your own refillable water bottle to help us cut down on the use of plastics.

Behind the scenes

The Eden Kitchen is a welcoming place where you can enjoy freshly created food and a drink, sharing long tables with other visitors. We designed the Eden Kitchen so that you can reconnect with food and see it prepared before you.
