Falmouth Coffee Shop Picnic Cornwall has won Gold in the Independent Café of the Year category of the National Café Life Awards 2014 which were held in London on Tuesday 23rd.
In its 4th year, the Café Life Awards aim to recognise excellence and encourage innovation in the important UK café and coffee bar sector.
The awards were presented by Celebrity Chef Aldo Zilli and judged by a panel of industry professionals who travelled across the UK from Ayr to Cornwall to visit the 9 finalists as secret visitors.
‘The awards are intended to inspire by example, by highlighting those involved in the sector who are pioneering and leading the market, whether in the development of new products or the creation of excellence in the High Street and Picnic Cornwall are doing just that’ Pam Sainsbury, from the Café Life Awards
‘We are totally stunned and over the moon’ said Emma Douglas, owner of Picnic Cornwall ‘it is a massive complement and a reflection of the hard work that we our team put in to making Picnic Cornwall a welcoming environment serving fantastic local produce.’
‘Our ultimate goal is to make Cornish food and drink accessible and part of everyone’s everyday life – it is great to have had the opportunity to share that ethos on the national stage.’
Picnic Cornwall’s Coffee Shop and Deli are found at 14 Church Street, Falmouth. They can also be found online at picniccornwall.co.uk.
