Do you ever feel like popping in somewhere warm and welcoming on such a grey and miserable day like today? Well, should you ever find yourself in Penryn you should be sure to make a visit to Miss Peapod’s at Jubilee Wharf.
Bright flowers on a retro table will soon cheer you up!
Jubilee Wharf is an award winning development with a mixture of housing, workshops, offices and a children’s nursery. Community creation & revitalisation – a hub for craft makers, quality childcare onsite from Jumblies Nursery, health & fitness classes and the café for socialising. It was built on what was the old coal merchants but has extremely green credentials, they have just installed photovoltaic panels and there are 4 x wind turbines on the distinctive shaped roof.
We have only been to Miss Peapod’s for coffee but have plans to go back and eat next time!
They make their own pasta and bread and exploit all the seafood brought to them from a local fisherman. Expect specials like crab ravioli and fresh sardines, king prawns grilled in caper, chilli and parsley butter or for people with more simple tastes there are homemade burgers with chips and toasted ciabattas with fillings such as roasted seasonal vegetables and homemade butter bean hummous.
They seem to have regular event evenings and they were busy planning one when we were there. This weekend they have the wonderful Megan Henwood who was BBC Young Folk Award Winner who, ironically I photographed all the way up here at a garden party in Henley on Thames a few years ago.

You may notice from the photos that the coffee at Miss Peadpod’s is Origin. Did you know that Origin is a Cornish company? I didn’t!
They were established in 2004 and are based in the depths of Cornwall near Helston and they distribute their coffee to restaurants, hotels, delis & cafes in Cornwall and everywhere else. You don’t even need to go down the A30 to try it, we saw on their website their coffee is being used in Malmaison
and Hotel du Vin
but its a good excuse to nip back to the home county isn’t it? Check their website for more info www.origincoffee.co.uk
