We take our breakfast very seriously here at the St Ives.
Each morning, our guests are treated to a bountiful continental spread as well as delicious cooked breakfast while enjoying the stunning sea views from our dining room window.
We only use quality and fresh ingredients and always try to source local Scottish foods.
Our free-range eggs come from Killellan Farm and our salmon is Scottish and smoked by the local heroes Karen and Allan at the multi-award winning Argyll Smokery.
Our morning blend coffee is roasted in the neighbouring village of Tighnabruaich by Argyll Roasters.
We are happy to accommodate your dietary requirements and special requests with advance notice.
Breakfast served between 8am and 9am on a week day and 8am to 9:30am on weekends and bank holidays. Continental breakfast (or a take away breakfast) can be arranged earlier with advance notice.
Cooked breakfast menu
We are very proud of our Wee Scottish Breakfast except it's not so wee at all! Quality pork sausage, traditional Scottish Lorne (square sausage), grilled back bacon, mushrooms, grilled tomato and delicious tattie scone fried in clarified butter with gorgeous free-range farm eggs cooked to your liking... And don't forget to include traditional Scottish haggis and black pudding of course!
If you fancy something different, then how about eggs cooked to your liking and accompanied with the most amazing Scottish salmon smoked locally by the famous multi-award winning Argyll Smokery?
These guys also supply Waitrose and The Scotts of Mayfair in London where we used to celebrate our wedding anniversaries many moons ago!
We've recently added something new to the menu - Jon's special - fluffy blueberry pancakes with Canadian maple syrup. It's now proving a firm favourite with our guests.
We have a lovely wee bar onsite so come and try local gins and whisky! You are welcome to have a wee dram there or in our guest lounge while enjoying the stunning sea views over the Bay or in your bedroom. We will be happy to bring one up for you or have a bottle/glass waiting on ice for your arrival. Our bar (as well as our Dining room) are exclusive to our guests only but you are very welcome to bring your family and friends. Just let us know with as much notice as possible so we can welcome them properly.
Our evening platters
We serve delicious evening platters here at The St Ives. They are perfect when you don't wish to change and go out again after travelling especially on a rainy Scottish day!
These can be ordered when you book or as close to your arrival day as possible. CLICK HERE for more info.
"Just wow! I don't think we've ever had such a varied and delicious breakfast at any B&B or even a hotel! I can see Jon and Katia have put in a lot of thought into the ingredients and the menu. The salmon is to die for!..." Audrey C.
"This is not your average B&B, that's for sure! Breakfast is a fantastic experience with great variety and healthy options. The seafood platter washed down with some lovely wine was delicious and the roasted vegetable lasagne was the best I'd ever had! My husband discovered his new favourite whisky which he enjoyed in the evenings in the lounge upstairs by the window listening to the sound of waves. We've had a magical time and we'll certainly return again!" Jasmine N.
