We had breakfast on two days and both were consistently good and freshly cooked. The quiches looked great so made a note to back at lunch... More

We live just up the road, and pop in every so often for a coffee or something to eat. The staff are good, the coffee and food of a high standard, and the ambience very pleasant. It's also a great place to buy gifts as the owners stock an original selection of delicatessen fare/tableware.

Visited several times this week as food so good just wanted to try everything we could! Can't get enough of the brown salad rice, you must try this! Can also heartily reccomend the blue cheese & leek quiche and the smoked mackerel pate is to die for! They have non-dairy milk for the coffee and also outside seating too -... More

I thought that trying to get a table for six at The Digey in St. Ives would be ambitious on a Saturday morning at the end of half-term, but, owing to the phenomenon that is 'changeover day' - namely, the day that departing tourists leave an area, only to be replaced by a new batch later in the day -...

The staff were friendly and the cafe was spotless. The prices are reasonable. Definitely worth a visit to refuel!

We needed some urgent refreshments after a busy day in St Ives, and this was the perfect place to get them! Simply decorated, this clean café serves fab cakes and tea at reasonable prices. There's also a deli counter that serves all sorts of scrummy salads to take away, and a great selection of 'things in jars' - chutneys, honey,... More

The Digey is great for light meals: the salads are moist and refreshing, potato scores top marks though brown rice is a close second and we sometimes get takeaways; the soups are thick and warming with leek and potato being our favourite; the cakes are the perfect size, and brownies beautiful. The owners are friendly and always welcoming and the... More

LOCATION The Digey Food Room has a lovely location. Just off Fore Street, it is right in the middle of the action. But because it is on a side road, it has a relaxed and out-of-the-way vibe. Furthermore, when the wind kicked up in St. Ives, we never felt in due to the way the building is placed! SEATING There... More
