Travel: Gilmore's Mexican Newquay

Gilmores newquay cornwall

Gilmore's is one of my favourite places to eat in Newquay, they make the most amazing, fresh and simple Mexican food using local produce. Since opening in 2015, in a spot just outside the town centre, they've quickly gained a cult following, having been featured on the likes of the Guardian. 

They use local Cornish meat and there tacos and burritos are stuffed full of fresh veg, home made salsas and Jalapenos. The breakfast burritos and mexican eggs are also worth a morning visit.

Food: Strong Adolfo's, Cornwall

Strong Adolfo's Cornwall

Strong Adolfo's is beloved by locals both young and old for it's beautiful, fresh and local ingredients. They serve, what I have long considered to be, the best breakfast buttie in the world.

Situated on the Atlantic Highway in North Cornwall, it's usually filled with families from nearby Padstow and Wadebridge. It offers excellent breakfasts, Origin coffee and a varied and interesting lunch time menu, often featuring recipes inspired by far off places. 

The cakes are out of this world too, in addition to a changing lunchtime menu the cake selection is wide and constantly evolving. I've had some of the best cakes of my life from Strong Adolfos.

The staff and owners are all very welcoming and the decor is great, featuring surfboards and the odd motorbike. They also welcome dogs inside and have a good sized outdoor space to admire the view and passing tractors. 

I think it's safe to say this is one of my favourite places to relax and enjoy some excellent food. It's a great spot for shopping as Jo and Co, The Goose Shed and The Arc food store are all in the same spot. 

Open: Monday to Friday 8:30 - 4:30, Saturday 9 - 5 and Sunday 9 - 4:30. 

Breakfast until 11:30 and lunch from 12:15
