Eat & Drink In St. Ives

St Ives is famous for its diverse range of cuisine and is well known as a foodie destination. Maybe you just want to refuel and grab a pasty, some street food or a burger for lunch. Or If you’re looking for fine dining or hearty pub food, it’s all in St Ives.

Over on Porthmeor Beach is the cafe – with the freshest and finest produce, sourced locally where possible. Renowned for their ‘build your own breakfast’, fresh juices and extensive vegetarian and seafood tapas. Or head to Porthminster for seafood, like crab linguine, whole grilled lobster and monkfish curry. Or over to Porthgwidden for Mediterranean and Asian seafood cuisine overlooking the beach. Porthgwidden is also open for breakfast – start the day with poached eggs, coffee and sea views.

Exploring the cobbled backstreets of the town will reward you with enough fantastic restaurants and pubs to satisfy even the most fanatic foodie. You’ll find local meats, Cornish Cheeses, Bakeries, Vegan, Fresh Seafood, Thai, Indian, pasta and pizza. Head to the harbour for the ubiquitous Fish and Chips and treat yourself to a locally made Ice Cream for dessert. Cornwall is all about real ales in cosy historic pubs or cocktails with a sea view. Local beers, rums, spirits and fine wines are easily found in St Ives and you’ll also find an abundance of artisan coffee. Whatever you want to eat or drink, you’ll find it nearby.
