Want a croissant and a decent coffee at 7.30 in the morning, go and see Paul at The Yellow Canary...
He may be on the short side but you get a big welcome...
Great little place.

I had a cooked breakfast at this cafe while on holiday in St Ives. The food was good quality and good value for money. The coffee was very nice and I went back on two further occassions for take out coffee. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and a great asset. The cafe appears to have lots of regular local customers, which is always a good sign.

Visited just a few weeks ago. Had read and been on there website before coming.

Coffee was great - huge cup accompanied by a nice biscotti. Also had a Lemon Meringue Pie which I wasn't hugely impressed with. Very yellow "lemon" bit. but didn't taste lemony. Meringue was also quite grainy. This wouldn't stop me going back though. They had a huge array of pasties and pastries, I think just picked a dud one.I should have gone for the chocolate tart instead :oP

Very friendly staff, great coffee and will be going back!
Thank you :o)

Stopped here for coffee and cake and it was one of the best cups of coffee I have had. And we stopped next day for some more cakes. Recommend the almond tarts, custard tarts, apple and raspberry pastie.
