Great little place, with excellent service and lovely food. We go here regularly, as it's such a friendly cafe. Wouldn't change a thing.

The Cornish Deli is a wonderful place for breakfast. On any St Ives trip this is firmly on the list for a visit. Great Deli too with a wonderful range of items. A definite 'must do'.

Popped in here fancying some brunch and a coffee during a shopping trip. I was pleasantly surprised to find this relaxed, friendly place in the middle of St.Ives. The healthy brunch was delicious, the staff were happy and couldn't do enough for me. As a local to the area I will definitely be returning for more tasty food, a welcoming... More

Small, local, away from the busy front. This isn't for those who want to rush in and want a lot of space to stretch out. Everything cooked to order. Had the Cornish Brunch. Great tasting mushrooms on gluten free roast with quality sausage and bacon. Best hot chocolate in St Ives. A really lovely warm welcome.

Firstly the guy greeting us was very friendly and accommodating with our small children, even charged my son's iPad! The food, a Turkey and stuffing sandwich was simply the BEST we had ever had! Quality and presentation of the food is second to none! I would pack this place up and move it to Birmingham in seconds, I'm sure they... More

Came here for my birthday on our honeymoon. The food was delicious, tasted very fresh and was very reasonably priced. It was a bank holiday so st Ives was packed but there were plenty of tables, although looking at other reviews this may have been an exception and we were lucky! Service was polite but not in your face so... More
