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!

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!
