    Abacus taxi are AWFUL and should not be recommended to students at all. They frequently just fail to turn up, and some drivers/employees are shockingly rude and derogatory towards students. Any other taxi company is better! Abacus have done some really shady things to monopolise custom in Falmouth, and have done some real damage to other local businesses while continuing to provide poor service. Buzy Bees, on the other hand, are a small, family run business that provide student discounts (The Moor to campus is only £8 compared to Abacus’s £10), and they’re also the only taxi firm to have a mini bus, that they’re happy to use for long trips (amazing to book with a group of friends and go touring Cornwall for the day!). I have so much Abacus rage, man. They made me late for work/uni so many times in second year by just not turning up at all, then being really foul on the phone to me when I tried to ask them why.

    Best places to eat in Penryn:
    Miss Peapods do an amazing breakfast.

    Best places to eat in Falmouth:
    All hail Good Vibes and their perfect sandwiches. Da Vincis is a cracking Italian and really reasonably priced, Meat Counter do the best fries in the world as well as unlimited coffee and perfect breakfast, Jacob’s Ladder’s Sunday roast has frequently been a life saver. Rumbling Tum’s all day breakfasts are bliss, and so ludicrously cheap, and Picnic have awesome crab sandwiches.

    Best food places in Falmouth include Rumbling Tum or Pier Cafe for breakfast, Good Vibes and Picnic for beautifulllll lunch or snack type things, Espressini for coffee, and Wheelhouse and The Shack for dinner if you’re feeling fancy. The Burrito bar is pretty good too, and only around a fiver for what is definitely a full meal.

    Joining in on the Abacus hate, they have never actually answered the phone to me when I’ve called and tried to book them.
