Emily’s Truro – A (Mostly) Healthy Eatery
20 River Street, Truro, Cornwall TR1 2SQ 01872 242468
There are so many cute coffee shops, run by even cuter people that I fall in love with in Cornwall, and guess what? It’s happened again.
Founded by Emily and Peter in 2016, both with a passion for great food (even if sometimes a little over indulgent) and exceptional service they have created Emily’s– a fantastic hub right in the centre of Truro.
Emily is a dietician so is clued up with every food abbreviation there is to know e.g GF, V and VG. She uses her expertise to ensure that everyone that walks through the door is able to walk out with a full tummy and smile on their face – no matter what your dietary/health requirements are. Just ask them for help if you’re not sure what’s what.
Emily’s is most certainly Truro’s hidden gem – especially their absolutely beautiful little garden-courtyard which is tucked away at the back of the cafe. When you’re sitting there basking in the sun and sipping on iced coffee or a skinny prosecco – or perhaps to keep it Cornish, a Korev lager – you will never believe you’re in the city centre. Emily’s really is relaxing.
For those of you who eat with your eyes, you most definitely won’t be able to resist – and certainly won’t be leaving empty handed!
My top menu picks are as follows…
Crumpwich (n): a panini but with crumpets (You need this in your life)!
Mature cheddar + Marmite /smashed avocado + mature cheddar / chorizo + mature cheddar.
Cinnamon raisin bread with banana slices and Nutella
Organic white with organic almond butter and strawberry jam
Emily’s banana bread or pumpkin muffin
Lemon and pistachio polenta slice
Da Bara bakery’s cinnamon roll
Soups and salads vary everyday dependant on the season and availability of local produce.
Alongside all of these yummies, they’re serving up locally-roasted Olfactory coffee, Canton tea and offering milk alternatives such as Oatley, Koko Coconut and almond milks.
Also, hot off the press, they’re now serving up some their own, totally-yum, cold press juices. The reason why cold pressed juice is so great is because vitamins and nutrients are damaged by heat, (most juices are heat pasteurised) so cold pressure works brilliantly to keep all of those important vitamins & nutrients in.
Not only does Emily’s serve delicious food and coffee but the garden, interior design and general finishing touches are dreamy! You’re ALWAYS welcomed with a smile, fresh flowers and the smell and sight of waffeley-pancakey deliciousness (yep, waffley-pancakey is now a word)!
