I have visited this gem of a place several times but never got round to putting a review on trip advisor much to my shame! I urge everyone to make the effort to find it and give it a try!

We visited the Cornish Deli for a late breakfast and were not disappointed. The scrambled eggs and smoked salmon were delicious and my husband enjoyed his full Cornish breakfast. All their food is freshly cooked to order and they use top quality locally sourced ingredients. The staff were lovely and friendly and the service was good.

4 of us my son and wife joined my wife and I for this most excellent lunch. We started with homemade soup and crab sandwiches or home cooked ham sandwiches . Everything was exceptional including the friendly service.

for such a small place they certainly pack a lot into it. Homemade cakes, homemade pork pies, even homemade curries. Fresh, still warm bread every morning. Lovely owners and staff, nothing to much trouble. Marvellous.

Called in for lunch and had a delicious steak sandwich off the specials board. Would recommend anyone in St Ives calls in here at least once during their stay.
