My family and I visited for lunch today and it was excellent with a friendly server. Will hopefully get to go again before we go home. Highly recommend.

Off the main road in a little side street, and well worth the detour. And certainly well worth the excellent reviews it's already got. We went for lunch and had very hearty sandwiches and these were meals in themselves. They were very helpful when it came to the children too and adapted the sandwiches to suit their tastes. Besides the... More

Had a really nice sunday lunch here. Everything cooked to perfection and a massive portion. The waiter, Mike I think, was really friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

Having just moved to the area we walked past The Cornish Deli and popped in for a cup of tea and a cake. It was busy with a great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and relaxed. I loved the little milk bottle the milk came in with a pot of tea and the breakfasts looked great! Well worth... More

I used to live in St Ives and visited this deli frequently. It has not changed! If anything even better. 4 of us met for lunch today. What brilliant and friendly service. And delicious food. I had the special soup of the day - yum. Friends had the scrummy looking omelette and a roast beef sandwich. Apparently the cheese cake... More

My Partner and I stumbled upon this little gem of a cafe and liked it so much we went back each day we were in St. Ives. This was our third year visiting Cornwall and just found The Cornish Deli because it is just slightly behind the main street of shops. We had an amazing lunch there and returned the... More

I live in North Cornwall, quite a long way from St Ives and so working out from a far where to have lunch on a Sunday was a bit tricky. Found this place on here and was delighted to hear they'd be open in January. It was an utterly ridiculous rain day but before a visit to the Tate we... More

We came here a year ago on a very cold day with the dogs. My son of 7 said his home made bean soup was the best ever. Visited again today and all had an equally tasty lunch. Very nice coffee as well. It's small but they have a nice variety and ate very friendly.

We've been frequenting this place for some time now and have never been disappointed. The staff are lovely, the atmosphere warm and friendly. The last breakfast I had was grilled tomatoes in basalmic with mushrooms on wholemeal toast. It should have been with egg but I felt like tomatoes instead and it was not a problem to adjust to what... More
