Fresh & Delicious

Wednesday 13th July

The temperature is rising, we’ve seen some sunshine and the schools break up soon. We’re hoping it may just be too hot for a cappuccino!
The best way to cool off and get your favourite Olfactory coffee is a delicious iced coffee from the Coffee Lounge.

The good news is that our iced coffees are made from a double shot of freshly ground Olfactory Knockout coffee, poured over ice and topped up with creamy Trewithen Dairy milk; no powders, blenders or added sugars.
Of course you can choose to add hazelnut, caramel or vanilla and even top with an indulgent swirl of whipped cream.

The best thing about our iced coffee is that, as it’s available to takeaway  you can enjoy your delicious iced coffee with any view of St Ives that you fancy!

 



Monday 30th May

At the Coffee Lounge, we pride ourselves on offering the best quality that Cornwall has to offer. This includes the very excellent, ‘Tregothnan Tea,’ produced from tea bushes grown in Cornwall. Fascinated by the uniqueness of this truly English tea, we leapt at the invitation to visit the Tregothnan Estate, home to the Boscawen family and find out more.

They have been growing ornamental Camellia on the estate for 200 years and back in 2000 the idea for an English grown tea took root in the kitchen garden behind a centuries old door and protected by Manuka bushes.

The extensive gardens are beautiful and home to pockets of tea bushes at varying ages, protecting them for 4-6 years until the uppermost tips are ready to be plucked.

Equally fascinating, was watching the teabags being made. Only the highest quality leaves are used and only perfect bags make it into the boxes.

The, ‘Tea Bar,’ on the estate is designed to give classes in expert brewing. In the Coffee Lounge, we offer our customers a timer to ensure a perfect brew time for their Tregothnan tea.

Always a perfect brew in the Tea Bar.

We had a great and educational day at the Tregothnan Estate, thanks to Jonathan Jones and his team. We love serving Cornish grown tea and our customers love it too.

Tuesday 9th March

The joys of being in St Ives are numerous and on a day like today they are certainly apparent. After a very windy night, where gales were reported up to 70 mph, locals and visitors alike were out to enjoy the sunshine and blustery weather.

The sun and the tide were out in the harbour, a perfect day for a wander around with a takeaway latte or cappuccino.

Just around from the Harbour front nestles the quaint, Bamaluz Beach. Known to locals as, ‘Dog Beach,’ Bamaluz offers year round frolics in the sand and surf for your pooch.

Sunshine, rocks and waves.

Up some granite steps and around the corner the calm of the harbour is long forgotten. Spectacular waves were crashing into Porthgwidden Beach and around the Island.

Wherever your wanderings around St Ives take you, just remember to pop in and see us in the Coffee Lounge at the bottom of Tregenna Hill, we have directions and great coffee!
