“Best little place to lunch!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We always pay this little cafe a visit on every trip to St Ives. Service it efficient and friendly. It has great coffee and the menu is extensive given it's size. The value is outstanding. It's particularly wonderful on a sunny day to sit outside and enjoy watching the world go by.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We have passed this cafe many times and this was the first time we had eaten here. Food is absolutely fantastic and the carrot cake must be the best I have ever tasted anywhere in the world! Also excellent baguette's and baked potatoes. Efficient and friendly service, all in a great location. Highly recommended.

“1st port of call”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

When ever we holiday in Cornwall our trip involves St Ives. We get there early and park on the harbour. We start at the Beachcomber. Call in for breakfast. Later on we may even bob in for a cream tea!!!!! Infact we've been eating there before the current owners took over just over 10 years . Great views and lovely atmosphere.
