This is a beautiful place, with good coffee! There's also a shop.

We liked this place very much, and wanted to visit again. We were disappointed that on two other occasions it wasn't open - with no explanations as to why not. We sat and enjoyed our coffee whilst watching the bananaquits on the feeder!

I am happy that you liked Shore Things and were eager to revisit, though I am sorry we were closed when you did. Our business hours are Mon - Fri 11am to 6pm with few exceptions. The bananaquits are always there ..as is the coffee once we are in, so I hope we see you on another trip. Thank you... More

Thank you so much for your comments. I am glad you tried a couple of desserts and enjoyed the view. We are going to try out some new 'sweet things' in 2016, but we will keep the old favourites.. Thanks Giselle More

Thank you for your comment about being nutrition conscious. Even though our tag line is indulge yourself, most of our menu does offer a well balanced selection of light meals, vegetarian options or a full plate of - as we say in Tobago..'food' - with rice and peas and meat, all with a healthy portion of greens.

It was refreshing to find somewhere that was open. Most of the restaurants seemed to close when the school term starts. This place was amazing. The owner greeted us during our meal and the waitress was great. I have recommended this place to other and we will be back every time we visit Tobago.

We went here for afternoon tea - cheesecake. Having tasted cheesecake all around the island we did not feel this was one of the best. We were given Lime Cheesecake this was a baked cheesecake and the base was far too thick and there was a slight bitter taste due to too much lime zest. The atmosphere was eclectic and... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit some comments and I do regret that you were not fully pleased with your dessert. I will follow up on the lime zest issue... I am glad you enjoyed the ambiance and the view and hope that you visit us again. Thanks Giselle More

A hidden gem of Tobago. You walk onto the verandah overlooking the surf, and any cares lift away on the sea breeze. The "service" is always friendly--service in quotes because it's more like visiting with family. The food is simple and uniquely Caribbean. Be sure to sit where you can watch the bananaquits and blue-gray tanagers come to the bird... More

Have lived in Tobago for several years. Shore Things Café & Craft is one of those *musts* for me... I wish I could have lunch there much more often (limited budget, sadly!)

The food was good, although not as flavourful as we expected. It took quite a while for our main course dishes to arrive but despite our mounting hunger, we were delighted to pass the time browsing their gallery of exquisite locally-made crafts. The desserts were truly the highlight of our visit. It was a group of us so we managed... More

This charming cafe is owned by the very present cook and owner, who is welcoming and has time to chat. The service is super, and the focus is on everything homemade. It doubles as a boutique for interesting handicrafts and second-hand books. Attached is an excellent handmade chocolate shop. The food is ok, so go for the package.
