Two weeks on the road and we are deep into Cornwall. We’ve done a fair few miles and scoffed more than our fair share of food. Cooking in the van is a bit of a challenge with our two pans, limited space and just 2 gas burners but if we are going to have any cash left at the end our the trip we have to limit our meals out. Our aim is to buy local, eat the regional specialities and seek out the best coffee.
There are some seriously good coffee shops here. Highlights were Bin 2 in Padstow. We sat here admiring the view of Padstow harbour as the rain passed.
Next decent coffee shop was The sorting office in St Agnes. It used to be the local post office until it was revamped into a quirky coffee shop selling locally sourced artisanal coffee.
For other great places to wile away a few hours over a coffee here are some recommendations. We haven’t been to all of them yet!!
You can’t pass through Devon and Cornwall without eating a cream tea and a Cornish pastie. As well as those delicious treats we have picked up free range eggs, local butter, cider, wortleberry jam, onion chutney…..Just this morning we picked up a fresh loaf of rosemary bread from Baker Steve. He leaves out a honesty box alongside his delicious baked goods and you take your pick 🙂
I’ve also cooked up some yummy dinners in the van – Morocco vegetables and cous cous, fish goujons with carrot and toasted nuts and stilton and broccoli soup. Dinner can be offered in exchange for a place to park our van 🙂 Any takers…..
