Reason to Love St Ives #4: The Food

The Rum and Crab

The Rum and Crab

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!

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!

    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!

        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!

        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! 😀
