We visited for breakfast and were very impressed. Crepes were very good, they were all served separately with a little wait in between as there was only one crepe machine, however this was not a problem for us. Good amount of toppings and tasted great!
Very impressed with the number of gluten free options too, with all gluten free items on the counter colour coded with a green label, and a separate green gluten free menu, making it very clear and easy. Gluten free crepe was great!

As the title says the food was lovely, service was great and in a beautiful setting overlooking the harbour near the sloop. Great for a nice mid afternoon snack. Although the large size of the crepes make this a must stop! No issues at all and well priced.

Aim was to grab a quick late lunch however due to vast menu not to mention cake and crepe selection ended up staying much longer than planned. Being gluten free, i have found good pizzas are hard to come by however the choice at Pels was brilliant and the taste matched. The Crayfish and crab sandwiches were also good and the crepes and carrot cake up with the best we've had in ages. Good value as well.

Thank you! We have worked hard to create a strong GF selection, which is high in quality. All our cakes ( and indeed pretty much everything else) is made here on site by us. Glad you had a great visit!

Fab choice of food and drinks, hot and cold, savoury and sweet. Prices are very good, discount on takeaway. During peak times, they require food ordering which to be honest is very understandable considering the service they are trying to offer. I notice some previous comments say they are rude, this is not the case, they are genuinely busy and try and acommodate everyone and run a tight ship. They also do varied gluten free options. A must whilst in St Ives.

Thank you for your kind words - they are very much appreciated. I have shared your review with the team and they are delighted you had a great visit. It's so refreshing when someone really appreciates what we are trying to do. Our sole aim is to delight our customers, and given our size and the number of people we serve, this can indeed be challenging at times. That said, the team always do their best and genuinely want to make people happy - thank you again for taking the time to write your review.
