Porthmeor Cafe, St. Ives

Porthmeor cafe bar is situated in the heart of St. Ives, a stones throw away from the Tate gallery. Open seven days a week, with Australian chef Cameron Jennings at the helm. The breakfasts are renowned, with a butternut squash and goat’s cheese omelette, or you can pick and choose your ideal breakfast.

The buzz still continues in the cafe with the tapas, dishes ranging from clams with chorizo to octopus, white bean puree, capers, a selection of vegetarian and meat dishes too.

If you don’t have the time to stop and eat, just pop in for a coffee, its locally roasted from ‘Origin Coffee’ and the best part of all of this is the cafe overlooks one of Cornwall’s best beaches, you can view the surfers, or if very lucky dolphins or seals, or just enjoy the scenery.

Booking is essential in the evenings, take my advice and ask for a heated pod and enjoy your meal, and the wonderful view of the beach. So if you are heading to St. Ives order yourself a glass of bubbly on the terrace and watch the sun go down.

Porthmeor Beach is a truly magical place. St Ives is considered to be the ‘jewel of the South West’ and the sandy shoreline of Porthmeor is a haven for surfers and a firm favourite with families looking for a fun day out by the sea.

An expansive stretch of clean, crisp golden sand makes for a beautiful location and is perfect for hitting the surf, making a splash in the shallows or just lying back and soaking up the atmosphere.
