Reason to Love St Ives #4: The Food
How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways! St Ives, the rustic, charming, seaside town has so many restaurants tucked in here and there! And to our great surprise the food is very good quality and Very, Very, Did I say Very ? Reasonably Priced! No wonder from sunup to sundown the masses are flocking to St Ives! There are large groups of families here to sun and spend a day at the beach………and then Eat. There are retired folks coming from their camper vans to spend their day…… and then Eat! There are folks staying at the large spa on the hill and coming into St Ives for the day……. to Eat. And then once the sun goes down it is quiet and…… we Eat! I never saw any foolishness in the streets (AKA drunks) and I never saw a policeman either. This is the Family Town! No doubt about it. It is made to enjoy! Now let’s look at some more Eateries!
There are over 20 bakeries in St Ives! Just try to pick your favorite! I bet you will have a hard time!
I couldn’t get a picture of The Tea Room outside because it would only show a line of people waiting to get in! Get there early and it is worth the wait for an outside table with a view of the beach! As you can see from the pictures they serve more than tea! We ate there more than once too!
Look up and down every small lane! You will find the most interesting places tucked away!
The Mex meets your burrito, fajitas, BBQ ribs, chili fix!
I love the fish railing at Olives!
Did I say YUMMY or what?
We LOVED the Cornish Deli and ate there more than once. I was so busy talking to the folks in there I never got a picture of the food! However, my favorite was their homemade crab sandwich!
And you must not miss the beer garden! As you can see there are oodles of choices to eat at in St Ives! But we MUST have the famous Cornish Pasty! More on that tomorrow!

Another excellent set of photos. I’m glad you liked St Ives, even though it is very touristy. I heard that the seagulls can be very annoying!
I got a kick of the sign with the arrows: Town – Tea – Tate. Did you go to the Tate?
I bet they get tired of giving directions and this was the way to go! No, didn’t go in just peeked inside
Not even considering the art, it is one of the most memorable buildings I’ve ever been in. Next time!
Bunty, it was just down the lane from where our cottage was in a very small stone cottage as well. We would watch people go in….stay a few seconds and come out. I wonder what was up with that then? Bummer, I missed it!
Are we talking about the same Tate? Art Gallery, on top of the bluff?
Bunty that building on the North Hill is being gutted and completely restored. The Tate must be in a temporary spot in the small cottage or moving there permanently.
😮 😮 😮 This is one grand invitation, as I see it. And look – one place is called Mex, only an ‘i’ is missing and it’s my middle name! 😀
So many lovely places to eat! I’ve only visited St Ives for an afternoon and we really struggled to decide where to have some lunch. I like the look of that Tea Room. 🙂
Yes, the Tea Room was very nice! Elaine you live in the UK right?
Yes, I do.
