Top 5 Places for a Takeaway in St Ives

Conor Fletcher

As the summer brings people far and wide to St Ives it so often becomes a must to place a reservation in advance when it comes to eating out, but on sunny days where you just want to spend your time outside, on the beach or around the town then why not consider a takeaway? With social distancing in place across the town it's often the easiest way to enjoy some of St Ives' best cuisine and spend your summer out enjoying the sunshine in St Ives.

A short walk from our luxury self catering cottages leads you to the harbour front with plenty to choose from an early morning breakfast bite or an evening Thai takeaway on the beach there's so much to enjoy throughout your luxury self catering break in St Ives. Here's our picks of the top 5 best places to get a takeaway this summer:

1.) Talay Thai

As the restaurant doesn't take bookings it's often a little wait to get a table at the Talay Thai during the summer, the restaurant has quickly become a favourite for many, being one of St Ives' more unique places to eat out. Enjoy a selection from the tapas menu with vegetable spring rolls, Thai fishcakes and a green papaya salad or go the Pad Thai - a must for many of us.

2.) Source Kitchen

Many of you will know this formerly as The Digey, however newly opened Source Kitchen offers some of the best Cornish produce on their takeaway menu. Whether it's Cornish crab or soup of the day you're sure to find something to tempt the tastebuds for breakfast or lunch.

3.) The Market Place

If you're fancying a picnic on the beach or need some food-to-go for a walk out and about along the coastline then look no further, The Market Place has you covered. Located at the end of Fore Street this quaint cafe offers the perfect way to plan out your day with a Cornish lunch wherever you decide to sit down.

4.) Porthmeor Beach Cafe

A favourite for many and a short walk from our luxury cottages in St Ives, Porthmeor Beach Cafe has a variety of seafood cuisine available along with a variety of other local favourites. With the restaurant already booked throughout the summer taking advantage of a takeaway is the best opportunity to enjoy Porthmeor Beach Cafe's menu this summer.

5.) Olive's Cafe

Takeaway or sit outside in the sun, Olive's Cafe is just a short walk from our luxury St Ives cottages so if you're looking for a morning to sit back and relax with a coffee in the town then look no further, Olive's Cafe offers home baked treats (including some scones!) to enjoy outside.
