Gusto’s needs a new home…….please let it stay in Newquay?
Newquay has its lovers and its haters but I think we can all agree it has the potential to be one of the greatest places to live in the country, maybe the world?
With its laid back surfing culture and a town centre surrounded by beautiful beaches and an infrastructure that includes its very own airport, this place is good but it could be incredible.
Recently the likes of Truro, St Ives and Padstow are boasting some of the greatest places to go out and eat. Newquay needed to not only gain a few more but keep some of the hidden gems we already have.
Have you heard of Gusto’s? It’s a little deli that has become a firm favorite amongst the locals and has been rated the number 1 restaurant on Trip Adviser. Their famous salad boxes are insane and if you are asking for the “all-in” salad box you will get a generous helping of Mediterranean-inspired goodness, along with a range of homemade breads. The salad box includes fresh falafels, slow-cooked meat from the hot plate and a range of salads and sauces. Those who want their Sunday roast fix will be pleased to hear that there is also a hearty roast on offer with Gusto’s unique special touch.
Well this local hot spot will have to find a new home, as the owner of the property on Harbour hill, wants it back. We are devastated!
Owner of Gusto’s, Simon Evans explains, “It has been hard to find a place that ticks all the boxes to fit in with our business model. We don’t want to leave Newquay but if we don’t find something soon we may have to look at other options”
Oltco Ltd whom are based in Cornwall and specialise in resin floors, non slip floor solutions and resin bound driveways. Have two directors, John Pearce and Tom Stringer who regularly eat at Gustos.
John Pearce explains, “Under no circumstances can this town loose such an amazing place. I love Newquay for what it is but the potential of this town is mind blowing and it’s important we attract operators like Simon to add to the experience of our town.
Tom comes in and says “ We have made it our mission to find Simon a place so he can continue what he does best, making good value, healthy food in a town we love”
Johnny finishes up with. “We have had an offer accepted for the Breadline Café, 4 Beach Rd, Newquay. Simon can now continue his business model but with a bit more scope to explore his talent”
