Food and Drink On The Saints

 One of the great assets of the Saints is our food and drink offer. Both day and night time economies are catered for, so it really is an all day destination for refreshment! The majority of these businesses are all independently owned and offer a really unique experience. 

At the start of the day there’s no better place to head to than Applaud, our award winning café. The smashed avocado on sourdough and a latte come highly recommended, and weather permitting the beautiful courtyard garden is the perfect location to plan the rest of the day. Head back later for afternoon tea; it really is a treat!

The Saints, being centrally located, is a hub for the lunchtime crowd: great wraps, salads and sandwiches are all popular choices from St Nicholas Stores and Doorsteps. Doorsteps has recently changed owners and we welcome Becca to the Saints.

In the evening you can eat around the world; take your pick from Italian, Chinese, Thai and Indian. Authentic cuisines cooked with passion!

Meeting friends for drinks or cocktails? Check out K Bar with its al fresco terrace, or for a more traditional pub experience visit The Thomas Wolsey with its fine selection of beers and wine.

The ever popular i-Scream, our ice cream parlour, has recently relocated – it can now be found at the back of the Thomas Wolsey Pub, and with lots of outdoor seating it really is busy all year, regardless of the weather.

Many of our businesses are housed in some of the most interesting buildings in Ipswich - you get a real sense of the town’s heritage when you visit the Saints. 

At the end of September, St Peter’s Street will be playing host to our first Food and Drink Market, as part of Forknight. Forknight is a two-week celebration of the town’s food and drink businesses.
