Absolutely Fantastic

We called in here for lunch on our way down from the main car park at the top of the town. The Deli is located only 2-3 minutes walk from the harbour area.

Just popped in for a takeaway and received great service as well as an amazing sandwich special! Loads of stuff to choose from but was recommended the sandwich special and I wasn't disappointed. Great value for money for what you get and knocks the socks of any pre-packed sandwich from a supermarket!

Super lunch last Tuesday in very cosy and authentic surroundings. Staff very friendly and food excellent. We had toasted sandwiches and admired the tasting plates other diners had. Highly recommended!

We visited the Cornish Deli due to the good reviews on TA. Funnily enough another couple had done exactly the same thing. Food was tasty although in my opinion a bit expensive. The place is very small and was very warm inside (due to the kitchen in close proximity.. A roof fan would be good idea). I saw a lady... More

Stopped here for lunch, had a crab sandwich and a ham and brie sandwich. Quality of ingredients was excellent, but would have preferred thinner bread to enjoy the filling rather than the bread.

Great choice of well cooked local ingredients. This little cafe is tucked away from the busy hustle and bustle of the central St Ives. Lovely ambience and very helpful staff.

Visited the deli for breakfast. Not the fastest service, but worth the wait. Very friendly helpful staff. The food was delicious and cooked to order.
