Some of our favourite Newquay go-to’s for coffee, brunch, cocktails or just a good ol Saturday afternoon mooch, featuring our dried floral installations or fresh cut flowers.
Basket cafe is run by our gal Jade and her Basket Babes. Above the counter in their hanging planter, you’ll find one of our favourite installations with 70’s esq warm tones of yellow, orange, brown and green. My go-to on their all-homemade menu is the halloumi breakfast muffin or Nasi Goreng pot for lunch. We also get our morning caffeine fix here on the work commute.
Fore Street Café is family owned by The Thompson’s, Simon is a proud local with a great passion for amazing food and service. A simple menu executed exceptionally well! Our favourite dish is the miso mushrooms on sourdough toast. If you head upstairs you’ll see our hanging ladder installation, made primarily with dried eucalyptus and pampas grass, with hanging amaranthus for dimension. Downstairs on the counter, we display a regular selection of fresh seasonal stems.
Choukette Patisserie is run by our favourite couple of Frenchies, Sam and Ben. Together, they make the most incredible homemade cakes, macarons and chocolate. Keep an eye on their social channels for their weekly cruffin special (if you haven’t tried their cruffins yet, where have you been!?) Their tea room tables display our dried flower centrepieces.
Nordic, deep forest vibes with a witching feminine energy embody this gorgeous cafe with delicious coffee, brunch and homemade cakes. As you walk in, you’ll see our hanging dried chandelier installations, which we collaborated with the gorgeous owner Tilda in creating. We also stock mini-dried flower bunches here for you to purchase – Island are our only stockist in Newquay other than our own flower studio! The french toast and blondie cakes are our favourites on the menu.
Nalu is its very own little plant-filled oasis featuring our weekly pastel-hued flower arrangement. Serving delicious coffee, breakfast burritos and lovely specials, you HAVE TO try the mango sticky rice! Nalu is one of our favourite spots to relax with its Bali beach vibe and the gang that work there are some of our absolute favourite people.
Blooms is at it again, up a ladder! We have added a dreamy ceiling grid installation, featuring a plethora of dried palms, lavender, and wheat to name a few. We love sitting out on MIX’s sun-trap terrace, especially for their weekend Sushi special paired with an Aperol Spritz (or two)!
Pavilion Bakery on Fore Street is my go-to for people-watching after a morning dip in the Harbour. They have an oat cortado perfected, I enjoy it with one of their pain au raisin pastries. You’ll spot some of our jam jar blooms dotted around the space.
A morning get up and go isn’t complete without an Oak and Maple freshly squeezed juice. My favourite is their Intense Defence number with orange, carrot and ginger, which keeps me going during those long days of wedding flower preparations. We have created both an Autumnal and Summery installation from the top beam of this cute juice bar, which Bruce and Laura swap out depending on the season.
The Bay Tree Cafe sits in Goonhavern, just a ten-minute drive out of Newquay. Have a wander around the quaint Garden Centre and head here for a fuss-free full English breakfast, homemade cakes or Sunday lunch! You’ll spot our rather large ceiling installation, front and centre, enhancing the gorgeous depth of the space.
The original premium cocktail bar in Newquay, Tom Thumb have two dried vase arrangements decorating their bar and piano interior, we went wild with colour including green, pink, burgundy and orange to give a richness alongside their touches of brass and velvet in the decor. This bar is a great spot for a date or an excuse to dress up with the gals.
Adorning the ceiling of this family-run Italian restaurant is one of our larger installations, imagine sitting in an Italian wine vineyard, with an all foliage base and touches of dried mimosa for a nod to lemon trees. Our highlights on the menu at Little Italy are the crab arancini paired with one of their delicious wines and the homemade cheesecake for dessert, sit out front to soak up the al fresco atmosphere.
The Secret Garden have incredible sunset views overlooking Great Western and Towan Beach, I always order the coconut and honey margarita to go with one of their artisan pizzas. The satay chicken salad is also a winner! We’ve recently been in to frame their bar space with a dried flower installation of neutrals, greens and pops of yellow to complement their plant haven interior!
Slow ethical living and lifestyle shop, completely plastic free! Head to The Good Lyfe for your re-fillable kitchen pantry items and sustainable gifts. You’ll spot our ladder hanging installation above their till point, made completely plastic free of course and in one of our favourite colour palettes consisting of dusky pink and forest green.
&KIN is a beautiful clothing, accessories and lifestyle shop in Nansledan, run by the lovely Lottie, who stocks sustainable and ethical brands that give a damn! You may just catch me dressed in one (or two) of their cute garms. Sitting pretty in the window are two of our hanging installations, with a pink and peach palette, adding to the boutique’s feminine vibe.
Right in the heart of Newquay, IC Clothing is quite literally opposite The Central Pub, this adorable boutique has one of our dried flower installations featuring all gyp and fern, front and centre in their display window. Accompanied with their latest stylish offerings, our favourites have included their lace lingerie sets and Havaiana’s footwear. Lyn and Jemma keep it fresh with stylish additions every few weeks so pop in for a try-on session, you’ll be in good hands.
