Fab place for breakfast - we loved it so much that we went twice in our 3 days in Antigua! The amount of great food and coffee you can get for under £6 is unbelievable! Lovely place to sit and service is great too!

This is a great cafe with indoor and outdoor space and is beautifully decorated. It is a little bit more pricey than other cafes, yet still frequented by locals and the service is great. Good stop for a nice coffee and pastry!
