Hands down, the best Cornish pasties we have ever eaten. We each had a steak pasty, freshly made and hot. They were stuffed full of meat, potato and onion - enough to keep us full from lunchtime until dinner. We also got a "home made cream tea" - two huge fresh scones, clotted cream and jam - and an Eccles... More

While staying in Cornwall, you have to have a pasty or two. Well as I love them I tried a few around the county before I found this place. This I must say is one if the best I've tried. They are made on site and you can see them being made. They were lovely, great quality and large. Loved... More

St Ives, and the rest of Cornwall are full of the eponymous "Pasty shops". The majority are baking frozen mass produced rubbish. This is the real thing made in the shop fresh each day. Well filled with an excellent meat content they are simply the best.

Brilliant! We had different pasties for each lunch of our stay and they were great. They also do baked potatoes for those who are gluten free. Great service with a cheery smile too.

The pasties from this shop are without doubt the best pasties in St. Ives, pricey but worth it. We have tried them all over the years and there is no competition. Lovely pastry and filled to bursting...yummy! Sometimes the "hot" pasties are not very warm which is a shame. The fruit scones are also a winner. Our only complaint is... More

We holiday in St Ives every year and we always head to Pengenna for our pasties. Much better than any of the chains.

Again sampled a pasty this year; not all that hot although it was a quiet day, and overall was a little underwhelmed by the pasty. The pastry was OK and filling was quite tasty but not a pasty I'd rush back for. A little pricey too.

Lovely pasty, not greasy like some other vendors/bakeries nearby. Worth a try. Whole variety available, I went for the traditional Cornish and had it warm, it was lovely, fill you up for the day.

A very authentic bakery where the majority of the shop is the bakery with a small serving hatch at the front of the shop. The size of the pasty was huge. They also bake a selection of cakes etc.
