Had a lovely afternoon tea at The Beachcomber in St Ives, We timed it perfectly as the weather took a turn for the worse. It is ideally located overlooking the picturesque harbour of St Ives.

There is something on offer for most tastes, we went for a cream tea and carrot cake. The only problem is the calorie count! But when you are on holiday who cares!

Service was excellent, Hope to call again soon.

Visiting St.Ives for the day, this was a beautifully situated café with views of the harbour. Good selection of café-food available; tasty and reasonable value for money. We enjoyed our Panninni, Soup and cake very much! Friendly staff and reasonably good facilities.

We popped in here, as it looked rather busy and that usually means a good place to eat, there were people sitting outside. The cafe is situated near the harbour and a good place to watch the world go by. We originally went in for coffee but was so tempted by the array of cakes, we succumbed to some carrot cake and a fruit cheesecake. Absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was also lovely and the staff very helpful, a very enjoyable experience and will definitely be back

Stopped off for lunch in st Ives, various baguettes and seafood chowder ordered by group. All meals fresh and tasted great, particular favourite was the crab and prawn baguette, loads of seafood in the baguette. In addition to food lots of nice artwork on walls and if you can get a table outside it looks over the harbour. Price for lunch for 4 people with tea was £31

we decided to stop for a coffee and a sandwich. The sandwich was so big I struggles, but managed it in the end. What a place. The café was clean, surroundings and staff pleasant and food brilliant.
