I went there once. The food was really good. The service though was terrible when I went. There was a lot of people but what I likes was when the birds come on the table to eat your food

Was a bit skeptical at first entering. But having met some staff (rasta guy) he made it memorable. Great service from this guy and another waitress. Food was sooooo yummy. The only person that almost ruined the mood was the girl serving the buffet. She seemed pissed off at what she did. Please don't serve me & my friends food... More

Food is good but the service is extremely slow. If you want to spend over an hour having breakfast go here.

Service with a smile... flavourful pancakes served in a variety of original ways...homely, rustic ambience..sounds of birds, soft music...pleasant personalities - the best way to start your day or vacation. If its not on the menu they will "invent" it for you. Like the idea of the fruit bowl. I visited on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The wait... More

Wayne with family and friends will serve you one of the most charming breakfasts ever. They are all around 60 and they have a distinct Caribbean air to them - good at hart, good sense of humor, no stress and good pancakes. They might forget your order if you go outside the set menu, but they will correct it with... More

Loved the variety of pancakes available, all with their own Caribbean twist. We tried one with coconut and one with chocolate and banana. All pancakes were served with a fruit bowl. Everything tasted deliciously divine. Although there was a little bit of a wait to be served, I will definitely visit again.

We had a group of 13 retirees for a breakfast buffet. Everyone in the group was very satisfied with the meal: it was delicious and we received a lot of food!

we heard that the wait could be long and it was but we weren't in a hurry. The breakfast was good and so was the prices. The people who run the place are very friendly. They are obviously doing something good as there was a constant flow of people
