Would definitely recommend this cafe to anyone visiting st... More

Amazing quality sandwiches, ordered a beef & horseradish & a smoked salmon, the standard of the food & service is exceptional! Freshly made to order, had the granary bread, packed full of filling, Have eaten all over Cornwall in the last 20yrs or so, this has to be the No1 place to go to. Thank you & well done.

have eaten here several times recently. Simple but super food. All local ingredients. Huge sandwiches with slabs of local ham and thick slices of local cheese in super-fresh tasty bread. Omlettes are the best and Mark is happy to make them precisely to your order. Grilled brunch is the best in the area. Service always extremely helpful and obliging.

The Cornish Deli is perfect as it's just away from the crowds of St Ives. There's a friendly chilled atmosphere inside. We had a full breakfast which was absolutely delicious

Just visited and discussed with staff - one of whom is coeliac also. They CAN provide gluten free pasties, but please allow 1hr30 notification for safe cooking of pasties. Staff were quite open in stating that lots of bakeries worry about cross contamination and for this reason have stopped making fresh pasties but have opted to order in frozen ones.... More

Just come back from dinner here. Trust me when I say this is an amazing place to have dinner. There aren't many tables so I would advise that you book. Also quite unprepossessing but look beyond that. Decor is basic but that is because they concentrate on the food. They offer a simple but adequate range of alcohol. For starters... More
