“Best scones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

A lovely bakery which makes the best scones in St Ives, and believe me I have tried a few!

The pasties are also very good.

Highly recommended!

“These pasties are hazardous to your waistline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Ignore what all the other pasty shops claim. Pengenna's are THE best in St Ives. They are massive and not for the faint hearted.

“Not a restaurant but good pasties!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

They do really good pasties that when you catch them straight out of the oven are even better. Although I'm Cornish and I don't normally stray from traditional pasties, their lamb and mint pasty is the best one they do. They're pretty big too.

Takeaway only, but there's nothing wrong with getting yourself a pasty and wandering down to harbour front to enjoy it. Just watch out for seagulls!

“So ill”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Had a pasty from here 10 days ago, the man behind counter said he couldn't warm the pasty because of health and safety lawsnnand vat??,,,,,,,,anyway we purchased a Luke warm pasty , which wasn't that nice because of the temperature of it......but was hungry, anyway later that evening my husband was repeatedly violently sick all evening , and felt really awful, could only put this down to this pasty because he hadn't really eaten much else...this really put us off eating pasty's, and especially ones which aren't piping hot out of the oven, as chefs ourselves, we know all about food hygiene, and holding temperatures, we just wondered how long the pasty had been sat? ..... Wouldn't revisit again, would always use barnecutt's in future....

“Giant pasties”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

These were quite nice but could have been better, the seagulls enjoyed the pastry. Would suggest there are other and better places to buy them
