Take time out for a little refreshment at the Café at Tate St Ives. Featuring a rooftop terrace open during the warmer weather, the café is open for breakfast, lunch and traditional cream teas. With spectacular views over the old town and the Atlantic Ocean, there’s no better place to stop and unwind.


Our menus change seasonally, ingredients are sourced locally where possible and all dishes are made fresh from scratch on the premises.


The Café welcomes families and provides high chairs on request. As well as a child-friendly menu, we also offer younger visitors an activity sheet and crayons.

Cornish produce

We aim to source all ingredients from Cornish growers and suppliers where possible. From cheese to fish, potatoes to ice cream and cider to wine, we’re proud to stock and sell premium Cornish goods.
