Absolutely stunning special (roast chicken, frazzled chorizo with spicy mayo) that we had - Really well presented sandwich on beautiful granary bread.

Great service, couldn't rate highly enough!

We read good things about The Cornish Deli and were not disappointed when we had lunch there. Between us we had the Chorizo stew, beef and cheese toasted sandwich, goats cheese and tomato bruschetta, and gammon, eggs and sautéed potatoes.

The gammon and eggs dish was nice rather than delicious but all the other dishes went down really well.

The deli is compact and cosy with a nice atmosphere, helped along by friendly staff and quick serving times. Recommended.

Unfortunately discovered on our last day down a back street.

We went for lunch which prompted us to return later for takeaway for an easy but tasty tea whilst we were packing.

The use and quality of the local produce was exceptional, I loved the fact that we used the last of the granary bread and if we wanted granary for our takeaway it was dependent upon the bakery literally over the road on not having sold out.

The ham and beef to be sliced for sandwiches in the counter display looked so appetising and tempting.

My husband and I both had the chicken, bacon salad sandwiches which were doorsteps and generous and the quality and freshness of the fillings caused me to wax lyrical repeatedly - who knew sandwiches could cause this!

The guy who served us was friendly, genial and welcoming, and extremely patient whilst I was trying to make up my mind.

A truly wonderful gem that is worth a visit.

We had lunch here recently. Good food on offer with a limited but tasty selection of specials available. The service was friendly. A great option for a quick lunch in St Ives and the portions are generous.

cant recommend this place (and the staff) highly enough. food was excellent and staff was accommodating to small changes we requested.

staff went above and beyond when we asked if there was a colouring book to. keep. my daughter entertained. When they couldn't find the crayons, they only went out to the the shop. to replenish their supply!

obviously we shall be visiting again.
