On New Year's Day we went in search of Cornish pastys and came across the Cornish bakery. So good! We had the Thai red curry pasty and it was amazing, amazing filling and perfect pastry! Wish we had got two!

Unlike many small establishments in St Ives which close for the winter, The Cornish Bakery provided an acceptable range of cakes, scones and pasties to go with a decent pot of tea. Whist lacking the quaint charms of some of the local tea houses (which were not open) it nevertheless meets the basic requirements of a bakery-based café on a... More

For a chain pasty shop, it was quite good. It was an average experience, nothing spectacular. I can say, the white mocha was pretty delicious... something about it was different than most places. The pasty, in my vast pasty experience, was standard... and well any standard pasty is a good pasty in my book! Quite a few tables that needed... More

Stopped by for a coffee and a pasty to take away. Staff were friendly and made great coffee, and kindly put our pastys aside for us to pick up later in the afternoon on the way to the train station.

We have had pasties from here for absolutely years and never fail to disappoint. Our personal view is these are the best pasties in town. Keep up the good work!!

Have been coming here every year for more than 10 years, but the way we were treated today means this means we will be unlikely to return again. We ordered pasty + ham and mushroom croissant together with a medium latte and large cappuccino. Told to come back to collect coffees in a few minutes. 10 minutes later still no... More
