Our flight was delayed so we decided to come see St. John and ended up at Cafe Napoleon. Given that it's Easter Weekend most places were closed but not this one. We enjoyed our breakfast, staff and cute location.

We came in a quick stop to have a beer which we had in around 30 minutes. When we asked for another, the waitress arrived to kick us out asking us to pay with no second beer.

I have visited Cafe Napoleon a few times when in St John, Antigua. This is a relaxed semi-open air cafe on the wharf area, serving a nice selection of meals ranging from typical Caribbean fare to Hamburgers. My favorite dish is their Colombo Chicken Curry, a Sri Lankan curry with Caribbean inspired flavorings - read coconut milk. A nice place... More

The café is a great place to stop for a break. Lunch, a snack, a drink or maybe dessert can all be found at Café Napoleon. There is a complete bar with many signature drinks. We did not have a meal but did have drinks and dessert. The bread pudding was excellent as was the service. It was a fun... More

Café Napoleon is our first stop when visiting St Johns, great coffee served with a smile. Lovely eats off their choice menu, I have had some great tastes at this little café, no wonder it is always busy.

We spent the morning in St Johns and fancied a cold beer. This looked the nicest and most comfortable place in town. We didn't eat but the food looked delicious with a varied French style menu - croque Monsieur etc. Service was excellent and we would definitely return. It was a pity we had to leave to get back to... More

This restaurant is located in the Redcliffe Quay in St. John's. The service was very prompt even though the restaurant was very busy. The waitress made good suggestions. The food was hot, tasty and plentiful. We would recommend this restaurant.

Description
Beautifully nestled in the heart of Historic Redcliffe Quay in St. John's, Cafe Napoleon was formerly an old sugar warehouse by a busy dockside. Sympathetically renovated, the restaurant serves a cosmopolitan menu using the finest fresh, local fish, meat, vegetables & fruits. The homemade desserts are just mouthwatering!
Dont want to eat, then just chill with a Cocktail in the new Lounge Bar looking out at the beuatiful gardens and watersedge. You can be certain of the warmest of welcomes and excellent customer service from owner, Lisa and her team.
