Great breakfast

A perfect place for a very large fry up! Very good food, a pleasant owner and a nice atmosphere. Clearly very popular and you can see why.

Busy when we first tried so owner reserved us a table for later. Not fast food but you can tell why. We both really enjoyed our meals and will return next time we are down.

Went here for lunch on arrival in St Ives yesterday. Restaurant almost full and we enjoyed a delicious salad, omelet and a really tasty mushroom, onion and cheese dish. Just what we wanted! Returned for an excellent breakfast and debating a third visit tomorrow - with the food competition there is in St Ives that's quite a compliment , both... More

We had the most fabulous experience here. We knew it would be good because when we enquired about booking a table, the guy who booked us in was really excited about the menu himself! Bless him. We arrived for our meal just as a table of 15 were enjoying their desserts. The only waitress was adorable and really friendly. The... More

We popped in for lunch with our (well behaved) dog and were delighted to find that he was made more than welcome. We just had a light lunch, but the friendly service, great food and all round banter just made it a great place to spend an hour or so. Nothing too pretentious, just good food, cooked fresh and served... More

Had a lovely tea and egg and bacon breakfast. - lovely pure and clear tea. - beautiful fresh eggs, smoked bacon, whole meal toast, even some parsley. - lovely clean white crockery. Plenty of locals and great service plus sun streaming in through window. What's not to like? Run by someone who loves Cornish food.

We stop here every time we go to St Ives. It's small but crammed full of great food. Lovely helpful staff. Don't want to sit indoors, then ask for a picnic.

We stopped here for a baguette before heading to the beaches. Quite simply the best baguette I've had - and best lunch in a long time. Chicken, stuffing and red onion marmalade...delish! Bf had roast lamb, stuffing and mint in his. Gravy on top (yes, you need to do this too!) finished them off nicely. Would definitely return. GO VISIT!

Very good and unusual menu full of tasty ideas as a new take on good local fresh ingredients. Open early to late for Coffee/Tea, Breakfast Lunch or Dinner, but need to book for the evenings! A friendly welcome given to all, locals and tourists alike.
