The Cove Café offers an intimate location that is quintessentially Cornish. With unparalleled views overlooking St Ives Bay, our café offers a unique setting for marriage and civil partnership blessings with a relaxed, coastal atmosphere.
At the Cove Café you can celebrate with your closest friends and family on our stunning deck before kicking off your sandals, descending the steps to the beach, and feeling Hayle’s golden sands between your toes.
We may be a tad biased but we truly believe The Cove Café occupies one of the the most unique spots in Cornwall.
Perched just below the Coast Path, there are few venues that can offer a wedding experience where you tie the knot to the backdrop of Hayle's golden sands edged with all the hues the Atlantic Ocean has to offer.
If you're looking for a reception only venue, where better to enjoy a relaxed wedding breakfast with the sun setting over St Ives on the horizon?
We are beyond lucky to be surrounded by the natural, wild beauty of the Cornish Coastline - the interior takes inspiration from our environment, mixing the blues of the ocean with subtle hints of pastel pinks and greens.
For close to a century The Cove Café has enjoyed the panoramic views of St Ives Bay - whether it is from the decking or the large windows that frame the vista beyond, our venue continues to make the most of our picture postcard position.
During your time with us, you will have exclusive use of the café. Our eating area sits just in front of the large, dual aspect windows with seating for all your guests. This backs onto a spectacular tiled bar and serving area from which to display your wedding food.
You will also have our stunning decked area allowing you to get even closer to the sea below whilst enjoying your welcome drinks or sipping on cocktails at sunset.
One thing we unfortunately have no control over is the unique Cornish weather... For weddings of more than 16 guests we work with our friends at Absolute Canvas to provide an intimate, dressed marquee to ensure all eventualities are covered.
The Cove Café has designed menu options that align with our identity as a Cornish Coastal venue with a slice of the Mediterranean. We offer a relaxed dining experience where our focus is on tasty, honest food at the heart of your special day.
We offer two wedding breakfast packages that move from your traditional 'sit-down' meal giving way to a more social style of eating. Our menus offer a much more intimate and convivial atmosphere that suits the surroundings.
For later on you can add an option from our Sunset Food menu so you don't go hungry as the sun retreats over St Ives in the distance.
If you need anything at all, please get in touch...
