Have been a repeat customer here year after year, and especially loved the saffron buns. However, we will never buy anything from them again after the rude treatment my husband and son had there today. Plus the scones they bought were bland and doughy. There are plenty of bakeries in St Ives that are good, and they will have my custom from now on.

We bought the most delicious cakes from this shop in september and returned in October because they were truly wonderful. However, the service from the same lady on our second visit sealed the fate of us ever going back. Ignorant and rude sums it up. I was completely taken aback by her. I complemented her on the wonderful food and she wouldn’t even look at me or acknowledge that i’d even spoke. Never again! No cakes are that good that you would ignore such behaviour.

My partner and i decided to conduct our own pasty survey and tried most of the pasties available in St Ives over a few years (tastiest survey ever!!) We rated each pasty on pastry, filling quantity and quality, flavour, and value for money. Ferrell's are not the cheapest but they are the best. Absolutely superb. As there were very few gulls about we even got to eat them in peace on the sea front.

We went to this bakery and there was a miserable looking lady serving. She was not friendly at all and we felt awkward and had to buy something. We got pasties and they were terrible, something crunchy in it and not very nice at all. Would never go back!
