Atmosphere was zero as the person serving was more interested in talking with her friends than serving a customer. This was supposed to be the "bees knees" for Cornish Pasties but their product was only average and I definitely experienced better pasties elsewhere in Cornwall...More

Fab bakery with scones to die for and great pastries. Only problem is they sell out fast so get there early. They do need more selection for vegetarians as very limited.

This has to be THE worst pasty I have ever tasted. Bland pastry, bland mushy vegetables inside and inconsistent seasoning - in fact all the seasoning in my pasty was delivered in one mouthful. I returned thinking my first impression must have been wrong given...More

St Mawes bakery is a local family owned business. It has been running for over 100 years now. We take pride in our freshly baked and made products including our delicious traditional pasties which are made to a recipe as old as we are. We pride ourselves that we make, bake and serve our products on the same day which are made in St Mawes itself (less than 200 m from our shop).
