Great pasties and very friendly staff. Buy pasties from here every time we are in St Ives and if pr-ordered the day before travelling they will be chilled ready for collection.

Popped in here late Sunday afternoon. Thought £4 a pasty was a trifle on the pricey side but boy were they good. We shared one between the two of us, which was ample for snack before a late dinner.

Always buy pasties here when in St Ives, not the cheapest but certainly best and probably the biggest.

We bought some scones to bring home before we left, they were scrummy. Pengenna Pasties were actually recommended to us by a number of locals. There are plenty of other pastry shops around but you get them everywhere. Highly recommend this one.

ive regularly visited the 3 pengenna shops.3 stars purely for the price,otherwise id have given 5 stars for those gorgeous pasties.the lamb and mint is to die for.the current £4 however is just not justifiable.id have eaten hundreds over the years,but 3 times out of four i fancy one i baulk at the price.such a shame.

Popped in just to get 1 large steak pastie for lunch. Delicious, huge and £4. How can you fault this without being picky?

At the start of our holiday in St Ives we always enjoy a Pengenna Pasty and this year was no disappointment! It was really tasty and don't forget to try the cheese straws!

Amazed to find proper vegan cornish pasties in St Ives! They should advertise this better though and would probably sell more! The woman serving was really nice and told me that they also do vegan cakes which is good to know. The pasty was really tasty and filled up but the inside was very grey, maybe could be more colourful... More
