Having lunch here at the moment. Scenery outside is quaint and nice. Having a toasted chicken mayo with added chips. Not bad.

The food is always outstanding and the staff is friendly and Carla bakes like an angel. They always make you so welcome and even when they are very busy there is no rush to move you out the door. It's a special day when you manage to get a slice of cheese cake

We read the reviews and were very excited to try this Café. The Cappuccino was ok, but not more. The carrot cake was not eatable for us - too much cinnamon. Scones were really good, but very small.

Great experience, friendly service and an absolute treat for the senses. Ideal for doing impromptu business or just taking a breather after a perfect day at the beach

Brilliant little place. Some of the best St Lucia has to offer. The menu was limited before, bit it has been exponentially expanded to a wide range of meals, drinks and sweets. They also bake cakes for home or functions and prepare platters on order. The service is EXCELLENT, with the owners serving you themselves! You HAVE to visit this... More

We only stopped here for a quick coffee but we would definitely have returned if we had been in St Lucia for longer. The setting was charming, the coffee was good and the prices were cheap. We weren't eating but the cakes looked very tempting! What's not to like? Try it!
