We say

Whether you’re planning to whip up a gourmet feast or a fancy picnic spread, the best place to fill your basket in St Ives is at The Allotment Deli on Fore Street. Here you can get your hands on all manner of mouth-watering, home-baked treats and Cornish produce, from fresh artisan bread to goats’ cheese tarts. Picnic hampers are made to order – choose from Scotch eggs, olives, Cornish cheeses and homemade chutneys, or if you prefer something hot there’s the legendary Ann’s Pasties and Ruby Jane’s takeaway curries. Not forgetting a hunk of carrot cake, lemon drizzle cake, caramel slice or a rock bun for afterwards. If you’re cooking at home there’s all manner of ingredients plucked from local farms and allotments – you can even order a local veg box to be delivered to your door. And if you’re planning an alfresco spread you don’t have to go far to enjoy some of Cornwall’s best picnic spots – simply stroll to The Island and graze on your Cornish goodies while enjoying the view to the sunset and the surf on St Ives’ Porthmeor Beach.

Very helpful and friendly service ★★★★★

We visited several times on our trip to St Ives as we received such helpful and friendly service and the food we purchased was delicious. We were even made gluten/dairy free scones on request which was great as we wanted to enjoy a Cornish cream tea at our rented cottage, delicious, thank you.
