We dropped into this little gem after touring Alexander Hamilton's home!! We ordered Blood Mary's which were seasoned well and served with good presentation. The bar tender/ manager came to check on us and to our surprise, asked if we wanted more vodka added to our drink- we assured her it was perfect!!! We also had a quiche with a... More

Running errands in Charlestown, we dropped in for a quick bite. The owner/GM overheard us discussing the menu & Tuesday Burger night. When I asked if the Tuesday night chili had meat in it, she offered to have vegan chili on hand if we reserved. At that we decided to stay for lunch. The staff was friendly & I appreciated... More

It might have been that we were ravenous, but to sit in a cool shaded courtyard: have chickens roaming at our feet, and be served excellent toasted BLTs was so good! Three iced teas to wash it down with: I will be going back again and again. Thank you!

If you are looking for a casual spot for dinner, Burger night Tuesday at Cafe des Arts is a great spot. The staff are lovely and while the menu is simple - it is well worth the trip into town.

A pleasant stop for lunch - very close to the Nevis museum. Good sandwiches and drinks in a shady courtyard.

The meal was average. Nothing to boast about. Just some regular sandwiches that is highly priced. For the short time spent there no locals visited the place. It is mainly for tourist because of the price. Too many chickens roamed around the garden that we were having breakfast. The coffee can do with some upgrading and the garden can do... More

I am not a sandwich fan, but this club sandwich with the egg spread was amazing. Everything was fresh, the view divine, and the staff friendly. By lunch, I had recovered from my sea sickness on the ferry. Cold beers and yummy sandwiches. The bread was fresh, you could get cucumber, hot sauce, whatever you want. We will be back!

We visited on a morning when it wasn't the best weather and so our experience wasn't as great as other reviewers have found it. Eating outside amongst the various animals wandering around, and a selection of plants and assortment of chairs and tables. It all looked a little run down and could do with a tidy up! Breakfast choice was... More

Came for breakfast whilst visiting Charlestown, a lovely venue for casual, good food. Coffee was super and the eggs and crispy bacon a true delight.
