Myself and my husband popped in here for lunch on a grey and rainy day and ended up staying a good couple of hours as we thought the atmosphere was lovely and relaxing. We ordered a bacon sandwich and homemade soup and both were delicious. We then shared a cream tea which was really lovely - great value and I... More

Took my whole family to the Digey on a winter holiday in Cornwall. Incredible food and drinks, scones to die for! What a lovely little place, tucked away in a very pretty lane. Highly recommended for its great food and very friendly service. Don't miss the Digey if you are visiting St Ives!

Just visiting st Ives from London and the one thing I miss when travelling is the good quality coffee that you get in the city. The Digey has the best coffee ( even better then you could find in the city) so I always get my coffee from this place. I love to chill out in the cafe or take... More

We have eaten here twice whilst in St Ives on holiday and it is a great little find. It is not large and partially below street level but still maintains a surprisingly light and spacious atmosphere. Very clean and staff are polite. They serve breakfast until 3pm, which always goes down well in our family! The breakfast is lovely -... More

A really lovely find. We ordered two cream teas (one gluten free). The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly.

St Ives in February is wonderfully unstressed and this cafe is first place we came to walking from Portmeor beach. Very welcoming and great smooth mocha. Tempted to return for lunch.

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
