“Wow!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We found this place by chance and i'm so glad we did.
we were looking to rest our feet and have a cup of coffee and a bite to eat so entered....what greeted us was an onslaught of gorgeous buttery pastry aromas and rich coffee fragrances.
The counter was stuffed with such delights as Strawberry Tarts,Almond cake,Custard Tarts,Chocolate Tiffin and many many more sweet delights.......not to mention all the savoury temptations on offer like the obligatory Cornish Pasty,sausage rolls and many filled rustic sandwiches.
Service was friendly and fast and the ambience was akin to sitting round a friends house for a light lunch and chat...very relaxing!!
Prices are a little high but i certainly didn't have a problem with that as the food & coffee were top notch!!!

“Great little Cafe”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Arriving in St Ives very early in the morning we asked at a newsagents for a nearby coffee shop. Directed here we were delighted by the warm welcome outstanding service and the general ambiance of this small but efficient cafe.
Great coffee and delicious croissants set us up for the day.
Impressed we came back for apasty at luchtime which were good and the service was still excellent even though the numbers of customers was challenging. Well worth a visit.

“pitstop for pies”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

what a charming little place - family run too, and you can feel it.
we ducked in off to escape the madding crowd and tried the pasties and little Portuguese pies. Whether they were the best pies in the world is probably a matter of debate and worth your while embarking on extensive research while you are in St Ives to corroborate (there is plenty of material available) but what is certain is this should definitely make top 3
