We loved this place---there is something special about the storefront itself and the little warning to ring the bell only once to call for service! We got three different pasties: a steak, a lamb, and a cheese and onion. All were superb! But we made the mistake of going down to the beach and standing along the shoreline railing---a seagull...

The pasties were great here and it was even better because in the mornings you can see them being freshly made. Delicious and great value for money, as 1 is enough for 2 people to share. The scones are lovely too and at 40p are very well priced.

If you want a real cornish pasty this is the place to go. Not particularly cheap but hey it's a meal in itself

Really good food at really good prices. Pasties full of meat not plumped up with excess veg or too thick pastry.

Great food at great prices. The scones are lovely. The shop has a great location in the heart of st ives and is easy to pick things up on your way around.

Very good bakery in the middle of St Ives, no tables and 4 types of pasty - they are bigger than most and very tasty. We went at lunch time and had to queue a little to be served, but it was worth it. We enjoyed our pasties sitting in the harbour.

I used to love the pasties here but now they have gone tasteless. Compared to other independent bakeries this one is now lacking in what was once the best pasty place in town.

Bland tasting pasties, both content and pastry. Lacking in adequate seasoning. Location: on a busy road without a proper footpath. Very overrated. There are better pasty shops in St. Ives.

We bought several pasties in Pengenna Pasties whilst on a recent visit to St Ives. We bought the traditional steak ones and thought they were delicious. They are made in the traditional (dinosaur) shape and full of tasty steak, potato, swede and carrot, with just the right amount of seasoning and are literally packed full and very flavoursome. We couldn't... More
