Just had a yummy lunch & escape from the cold. Nice, friendly, quiet, low key with fab vibe & service. I had Cornish blue quiche with hot potatoes & green salad 🥗. Delicious! The hot chocolate is really good. Highly recommend

Good coffee in the centre of St Ives. Good breakfasts such as poached egg on mashed avocado. The unfortunate point is the lack of view on the beautiful port.

We always go to The Digey Room for a refreshment stop when in St Ives. This is a lovely local cafe /deli with excellent freshly cooked food, locally sourced and of the highest quality. It is slightly off the beaten track, just off the cobbled street but seek it out! There is a good standard selection but all done with... More

Lovely coffee and proper tea. Very tasty cakes and scones. Always specials on - different quiche and soup every day so a good variety. Delicious fresh salads. Great place for a light lunch or a snack. The deli is good too - take some hummus home; it is addictive. Bit on the pricey side but you get what you pay... More

A really, really nice breakfast. Went for the Cornish, with lots of bacon, scrambled egg nicely done, tomatoes, hogs pudding, toast - really good portions and beautifully cooked - £8-50; not at all greasy, just all really good quality ingredients. And very nice staff.

Been here a few times in my trips to St Ives and it never fails to please. The food always tastes fresh and very tasty. The staff are friendly, chatty and obviously interested in the produce they sell. Great place.

I have visited this very pleasant little restaurant on several occasions on my trips to St Ives on painting courses. Food is always excellent, good choice of unusual dishes together with local specialities and always a warm welcoming atmosphere. Unfortunately my last visit was totally ruined. I note on another post that clean and friendly dogs are welcome. The two... More
