The Eden Emporium delicatessen and Cheeky Bean Coffee Bar is housed in an old church, superbly and sympathetically converted with many original features retained.
From a naval background, Jackie Semple always wanted to find a vocation which was not secretarial in nature, and after many adventures she hit upon the delicatessen concept.
Having had an interest in cooking and food experimentation, and a fortunate introduction to baking, it seemed a natural progression to explore the delights of exciting comestibles.
The Eden Emporium opened in August 2001, and continues to go from strength to strength with our range of foods and experience. We taste all of our new products which enables us to speak knowledgeably to our customers and make suggestions for their use.
Food hampers have a long history, dating back to William the Conqueror in the 11th Century. They became very popular in the Victorian era, when employers gave their staff a gift to show appreciation and to ensure a good Christmas was had.
But, today, nobody needs to wait for the festive season.
Our luxury hampers showcase the finest award winning comestibles. They make an extraordinary gift for any occasion, are perfect for any event, and are bursting with indulgent treats.
Our aim, and business mission, is to provide a service to our customers that will delight and give great pleasure.
