We dined here for a light lunch on the last day of our wonderful holiday is St Ives. I wish I had found this sooner as this little deli is absolutely wonderful. The gentleman who runs the place is a treat, a lovely man who cares about food and customers this meaning that your experience will always be a good... More

Went here for lunch on our last afternoon in St Ives after reading reviews, I had cornish brunch and my husband had the hot roast beef baguette. Both were unbelievable, the eggs tasted exactly how eggs should! Really disappointed we don't have more time in St Ives to come back to this fabulous place and sample more of their amazing... More

Me and my partner were in St Ives for a week and after reading positive trip advisor reviews we thought we'd give it a go! It was a good decision, the food was great and big portions- I had the chorizo and mushroom breakfast and my partner had a full English- he's a bit fussy so asked for substitutions which... More

The restaurant is down a narrow and very busy street. I wondered as we walked if the food would be safe if we found a place to eat. We came upon the The Cornish Deli and reluctantly went in. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. It appeared that they had a lot of local business as... More

We had a wander on our first evening in the town and stumbled upon this lovely little place. We had Patatas bravadas to start with a bread basket, it was absolutely delicious, loads for two to share, and the bread came with butter with flakes of salt in it, my favourite kind, and balsamic vinegar and oil for dipping, the...

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy lovely tapas and good soul music. We had four tapas plates to share: Garlic King Prawns, patatas Bravas, Mushrooms with Melting Cornish Blue and meatballs and chorizo in tomato sauce. All dishes were fabolous. Friendly staff also added bread for us, and we had a wonderful time there. Add cornish beer and you're happy.... More

Well worth looking for, the Deli is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle that St Ives has to offer. We popped in for a light bite to eat, and were amazed by the food on offer. My wife had a cheese, ham, and chutney baguette, whilst I went for the anti pasta platter and the cheese board. The... More

We called in on a rainy day in St. ives and were made to feel very welcome. The staff were very helpful and friendly despite it being very busy... The man serving us even ran out of the cafe to get us fresh scones to have with our drinks! Would definitely visit again.
