Quick snack

We stopped by and sat outside for a quick lunch and drink. The good was very good and the staff friendly. The prices were very reasonable. Great to watch the world go by even on a quiet Monday in March.

Recommend sitting outside in the sunshine for a coffee (& pleased they have soya milk!) or a glass of wine to take in the view. Great for lunch - we had a fab salad nicoise beautifully presented & my boyfriend had cheese & salad sandwich - both delicious. Returned just for a coffee & received the same warm welcome &... More

Lovely little place but found it annoying when my partners food arrived 15minutes before mine! Think it might had something to do with staffing issues. Lovely views though.

We found the experience of eating here a bit of a disappointment and expensive. I would go here for the view on a sunny day not the food

We were in St Ives for the week and had a lovely meal here the evening before we left. It was very quiet but we were well looked after. My husband had a delicious fillet steak and I had red mullet on a bed or crab meat and crushed potato. Very good indeed and beautifully cooked. It is delightful sitting... More

We came in here for coffee and cake on a wet and cold day. Both were nice though a little pricey. The view is lovely over the beach and there were loads of sand covered dogs in after having a walk in the sea.

We had a lovely lunch here whilst on holiday last week. My husband enjoyed the home-made pasty and salad. I was delighted to find that The Tea Room caters so well for people with gluten intolerance. I had delicious gluten- free soup and gluten free home made savoury scone. I was too full for dessert, but couldn't resist taking away... More
