Best coffee in St Ives! The service is always great - working in St Ives it's nice to go somewhere local where they remember you and have a chat. All staff are great especially Simon & Dave!

We like to take time to get to know our local customers, and I agree Dave and Simon are assets to my team. We... More

Having been in the county for over three days now myself and my family traveled to St Ives and were tempted by the delicious pasties on display. As there was six people in our party all wanting a different flavour pasty, my Mother asked the shop assistant to write what each of them was on the paper bag. The shop... More

On New Year's Day we went in search of Cornish pastys and came across the Cornish bakery. So good! We had the Thai red curry pasty and it was amazing, amazing filling and perfect pastry! Wish we had got two!

Unlike many small establishments in St Ives which close for the winter, The Cornish Bakery provided an acceptable range of cakes, scones and pasties to go with a decent pot of tea. Whist lacking the quaint charms of some of the local tea houses (which were not open) it nevertheless meets the basic requirements of a bakery-based café on a... More

For a chain pasty shop, it was quite good. It was an average experience, nothing spectacular. I can say, the white mocha was pretty delicious... something about it was different than most places. The pasty, in my vast pasty experience, was standard... and well any standard pasty is a good pasty in my book! Quite a few tables that needed... More

Stopped by for a coffee and a pasty to take away. Staff were friendly and made great coffee, and kindly put our pastys aside for us to pick up later in the afternoon on the way to the train station.

The wonderful Cornish bakery provided us with beautiful fresh pastries every morning for breakfast and stunning pasties for lunch every day this year on our holiday. Missing them and the wonderful friendly service provided by Vikki & Dave who seem to work ALL the time! Fabulous guys keep up the good work and counting the days till our next visit!
