Cornish Bakery has long had a strong presence on St Ives’ Fore Street. A sympathetic expansion to the building has created a more spacious and stylish environment for customers, surrounded by the work of local artists, creatives, and makers. Customers can also purchase some of this art.

“After many years in our St Ives bakery we have outgrown it!” said Cornish Bakery founder and owner, Steve Grocutt. Over time, our brand has changed significantly, our product range has evolved into a more fulsome bakery experience, and coffee has become our best seller.

“Under our brand, we have injected more space and character into our St Ives location. I am confident it will be the premium space and experience for both residents in, and visitors to, the beautiful town of St Ives.

“Bakery is the new coffee shop, and we are at the forefront of this. We’re looking forward to welcoming customers, new and old, into our revamped St Ives bakery.”

The bakery is adorned with lights from Cornwall-based Lin Lovekin and Studio Haran, alongside inspirational paintings and illustrations from South West-based artists Sophie Harding and William Luz. The bakery’s exterior colour remains India Yellow.
