Authentic Cornish pasties arrive at Le Pollet!

19 February 2011

On Tuesday 10th November, SandpiperCI launches Pasty Presto, a bakery café with a difference, at 7 Le Pollet.

Pasty Presto is the leader in the fast growing market of authentic Cornish Pasty retailers. The newly refurbished 56 seater café - with views over Castle Cornet and the harbour - will offer a wide range of quality food including: a range of different flavoured Cornish Pasties, filled baguettes, soups, French patisseries, a range of handmade cakes, fairly traded coffee, fresh smoothies and ice cold drinks. The café will also cater for take-away business.

SandpiperCI CEO, Tony O'Neill said: "Despite the current climate we’re very confident in Guernsey’s future and continue to expand our products and services. We’re delighted with the new café and look forward to offering Presto’s authentic quality pastry and pasty products.”

Explaining why his products were different, Steve Grocutt, founder and MD of Pasty Presto said: "We are meticulous over detail. From the blend of our coffee to the quality ingredients in our pasties we strive for the best. Anyone can make a pasty, but it’s the sheer ‘Cornishness’ of ours that have made our business so successful. This will be our 26th outlet and we’re really looking forward to our first venture in the Channel Islands.”

The café will employ seven staff including a fully qualified *barista to ensure the store’s coffee matches the quality of its food.


* a professional who is highly skilled in coffee preparation, with a comprehensive understanding of coffee,
coffee blends, coffee varieties, roast degree, espresso equipment, maintenance, latte art, etc.
