Didn't eat in here. Just bought the custard tarts which we love in Portugal. These were better! . Possibly the best we have eaten. Wish we had time to eat in if that is the general standard of food.More

We stopped for a quick pasty and a drink and I think I had the best latte I'd ever tasted! And the pasties were gorgeous too!

Lovely pastries, pasties and hot drinks - we came here several times during our stay in St Ives, sometimes to grab breakfast, other times for an evening pasty. I'd recommend the cherry and almond croissant, it's one of the best pastries I've ever had.
