Camborne’s Cafe Soul now serves food. The new lunchtime menu includes filled wraps, rolls, paninis and jacket potatoes.
The plan for the future is to install a griddle and expand the menu introducing hot dishes, daily specials and extend serving hours into the evening.
Cafe Soul opened in Cross Street just before Christmas. Owner Jon Stoneman wanted to create something different, a bar with a Mediterranean atmosphere that stood out from the rest but with affordable prices.
It has a distinctive look inside and out. It’s fresh and stylish with much the same feel and atmosphere as the popular bars dotted around Cornwall’s coastal towns and villages.
The bar already offers live music events, quiz nights and private functions and is beginning to earn an enviable reputation. Adding to those established attractions will be monthly drink promotions and food and drink combo promotions.
“This is exactly the kind of new business we need in the town,” said Project Manager of BID Camborne, Mel Martin.
“It’s filling a gap in the market and attracting people throughout the day – whether they’re popping in for a coffee and cake to break up a shopping trip or going out for an evening of live music. The feedback we’re getting is very positive.”
Cafe Soul scores the full five stars on Trip Advisor and is described as having all the makings of being the place to be seen in Camborne.
Jon explained: “We’ve been very pleased and encouraged by the response and interest we’ve had in the bar and see a bright future ahead with the business and clientele continually growing.
“Until now we’ve concentrated on building up our drinks trade but feel the time is right to branch out and offer a light selection of lunch time food. I’m looking forward to seeing what the future brings and watching the bar reach its full potential.”
