“Best coffee in St Ives”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Lovely place. Cappuccino and lattes made beautifully with yummy homemade bits. Pasties and pastries both well worth eating as are the eggs on toast. Lovely local people too.

“You can't beat their pasties!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Always a favourite with my family for their pasties. As everyone wants something different, including vegetarian, all tastes are catered for here. My. favourite will always be the traditional pasty though. As the family now have grown and flown the nest I had to get the Yellow Canary to make up a take home package of pasties as their holiday gifts! The smell of freshly made pasties in the car home was almost impossible to resist!

“Must go...”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

This is a fantastic cafe to visit when in St Ives. The owner is personable and always remembers a face. The service is brilliant, the food is scrumptious and good value for money. If you're looking for an early breakkie or snack they serve fresh food and pastries before many other places open which is a bonus. Try their sweet pasties with clotted cream, very naughty but extremly delicious!

“Lovely staff & lush food”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

We have been coming here over the years and have always been impressed with the quality of breakfast & coffee. Egg on toast, very simple but done to perfection.
The staff are always welcoming and the owner is always a very happy chap.
Ordered a cup of hot soy milk and we didn't get the usual raise of an eyebrow as we have in other places, nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
The artizan breads look fantastic too.

“Cute, friendly cafe - perfect!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Just popped in for pasties, tea and coffee. Spotlessly clean, welcoming and tasty food. The cakes looked to die for so we might have to go back. Loved the cute little tea pot and biscotti served with a delicious cappuccino. Sit in the front bench to watch the world go by!
