Our Rising Stars Cafe is open every Wednesday during term time from 11:00 until 14:30.

The cafe provides an opportunity for our students to gain valuable experience in the hospitality sector, increasing their likelihood of finding paid employment in Cornwall.

Students take part in all aspects of running a cafe which include:

  • Front of house experience.
  • Accounting, budgeting and cash handling.
  • Marketing and promotion.
  • Cooking and baking.
  • Ordering and purchasing stock.


All students who work on our cafe also gain a Level 2 Certificate in Food Safety and Hygiene.

In October of 2022 we had a surprise inspection from an Environmental Health Officer and received a 5, the highest score possible, for our Food Hygiene Rating.

Our cafe and kitchen are run by the very talented Vicki who has a talent for tempting the tastebuds with foods of all cuisines from around the world.  Our menus have so far included Moroccan, Indian, Mexican and Italian food as well as more conventional British fare, and always accompanied by a mouth-watering selection of cakes and sweet treats.

Takeaway is available and we welcome orders from local businesses.

There are always gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options available.

The cafe also serves a broad selection of hot and cold beverages.

Our food is always very reasonably priced, and half of all our profits are donated to the RSPCA with the other half going towards extra-curricular activities for our students.

All are welcome to attend our cafe and we also allow well behaved dogs on leads.
