“New Friday and Saturday Evening Menu”
Review of Espressini

Description: Just like our coffee, when we decided to open our kitchen, we set out to find the most incredible local, seasonal produce we could. Our search for suppliers began with tracking down the best free-range eggs from local grass-fed chickens we could find. Ever since then, we've been knocking on farm doors and creaking allotment gates to source more incredible local produce and create scrumptious dishes. The result is a fresh and changing menu with new twists on old classics covering breakfast, elevenses, lunch and even a spot of afternoon tea, or coffee of course if you prefer!

Tried the evening menu at Espressini for the first time, prompted by friends recommendations so we had high expectations which were met. Kicked off with glasses of Argentinian merlot (£5 glass/£18 bottle) followed by the bread and butter and cheeseboard. Bread basket comprised 6 large pieces of fantastic fresh focaccia with choice of three butters - tomato tarragon along with a garlic butter were gorgeous. Cheese platter comprised large plate (so large we shared) with smoked cheddar and stilton cheeses, portions of silver onions, caramelised onion, gherkins, and fresh capers and frozen grapes which was an unusual but also a very tasty combination. Hats off to Ben for the food and to Rob and Isobel for exceptionally good friendly service. We have already planned what we will have on our return visit next week as we work our way through Bens extensive menu board. PS Espressini coffee also available to end your evening on a high note.

Lived up to its reputation as serving the best coffee in Falmouth. Actually, probably the best food as well!
Laid back relaxed and quirky setting and friendly staff.
Impressed by their coffee and dedication in serving it. Coffee menu included cortado and allonge which showcased well the flavours of the locally roasted beans - and knowledgable barista staff who gave a great run down on the coffee.
Great brunch (served all day) - so many alluring choices on the menu. I feel we will have to return to sample the others. On this visit we savoured - Turkish eggs - accompanied really fulsome flavoured harissa, such lush tomatoes with a really smoky grilled flavour, moist and rich Cornish yogurt on sourdough toast.
Husband’s choice was breakfast tacos - eggs with a colourful array of salsa, tacos, generous serve of sliced avocado, brilliant purple of red cabbage
Waffles - decadently loaded with warmed sliced banana, latherings of maple syrup, sprinkled with chopped pistachio.
All the meals were a visual delight - all so colourful and well presented and the flavours themselves were fab.
In short, nothing to fault them on. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Went to try out their new offerings for dinner - WOW. Great food and cocktails. Really nice, small selection of well executed meals. The mackerel pate and mussels were our favourites. Delicious cocktails (dirty negroni was fab). The usual attentive, friendly service that you’d expect from Espressini. This is sure to be a winning formula, get down and there and try it!!

Espressini had been highly recommended so on my first visit to Falmouth I searched them out as I do love a good coffee shop! Super friendly staff, Cam and Josh made me so welcome. Love the coffee and cafe and plan to come back in the morning!
