17/02/11 Eden's Cafe in St Austell opened today.  It occupies a corner spot with super views to the South.  It has a comfortable, light open plan feel and there was lots of trade to try out the food.


17/02/11 There's lots of local and good for you food with smiling staff as well, what more could you ask.  There's also a book swap counter with a growing selection of books.


17/02/11 Books flying over head reminded me of an early Harry Potter film, but they behaved and didn't swoop down and pinch my lunch.


17/02/11 It was so good to see local produce on sale too, it's early days, but form the trade today I think it's going to do well. Next time your in St Austell eat local, eat well, eat at the Eden Cafe.


12/02/11 Spring is on its way at Eden.


12/02/11 Little bursts of sunshine are springing up everywhere and soon Eden will be a blaze of colour.

05/02/11 One group of strange looking fellows had come to see the Comic Art in the Core.


05/02/11 This was a 24 hour comic art creation time to produce a 24-section comic inspired by the local area.  I arrived 1 hour before the finish.


Here's some examples of the talented work.

05/02/11 Food is available in the Med Biome as well as in Jo's cafe.

24/11/10 Power washing rubber mats probably from the Ice rink, The high flood mark on the ice rink wall tells the story. That's at least a foot higher then the ice and ice floats on water so....


24/11/10 The Rink is all boarded up and imposable to see except trough a key hole. Sadly the damage is very bad and the whole thing will have to be rebuild. I am told they have the technology and I have never seen such determination from the staff, I'm sure it will be done in the shortest possible time. The Gallery in the second picture has lost it's wooden floor this too will be like new shortly?
