Culinary Delights of St Ives!

The Food Festival this year was brilliant.

It made me think of the plethora of wonderful places we have
to eat in St Ives. I spend a lot of time wondering around looking at menus with
my mouth watering. If anyone wants to treat me to a meal out?! One way to try
some of the best fish restaurants is to go for the early evening deals or fixed
price menus. The Alba, Black Rock, Alfresco, The Loft.

The beaches all have wonderful cafes. The Porthminster Café which
is famous and you must book! The tapas and sunset on Porthmeor Bliss.
Porthgwidden which is almost Mediterranean.

There are some restaurants off the beaten track so have a good explore. Sims is  opposite the Guildhall and has a very reasonable fixed price menu. All home cooked and some wonderful art works by the chef! Nice reviews on Trip Adviser. It is always worth having a look on trip adviser to get an idea about places.

And then the Tate roof top café…………….what views. In the
Summer Holidays they are opening a Sunset Café on Friday and Saturday evenings……..check
with them for details.

CreamTeas at Madeleines, Coasters, The Tate, Bumbles, The Tea Room and others.

Mustn’t forget the wonderful views from the Pednolva. On
their roof terrace in sunny weather and inside in inclement weather. Nothing
like the views over St Ives Bay. You might see dolphins and seals. Actually I
have seen dolphins from the Porthmeor Café too.

I have only touched on what is available………….Oh Pizza
Express has opened £10 for two courses I saw advertised. I like On Shore for
pizzas and some delicious seafood. Café Pasta and other tea shops further along
the harbour.

Try the raw chocolate in Living Food of St Ives. A must
EAT!!! I grow healthy bean sprouts and you can buy the kits there or mail
order.

Pels is a different style takeaway near the Sloop………………

Anyway I have to stop and get some lunch now. I have made
myself starving and I have strawberries with clotted cream and asparagus from
the greengrocer.

I haven’t even touched on Fish and Chips and pasties. Another
time…………..:)

Sadly our one and only fish shop has closed! You can buy fresh fish from the Farmer’s Market on a Thursday or go to Newlyn. Sorry…………hopefully someone will come along to fill the gap soon.
