We've been to Hemingways several times before when visiting Antigua by cruise ship. It's usually a quaint refreshing visit but not this time. Maybe it was because it was January 13th and luck had run out, but we could not get served after a long wait seated on the balcony overlooking the street. Went to the Island Beehive for a... More

A nice place to stop and watch the world go by. Very good menu and the coffee is great. Might be a bit busy if any cruise ships are in port.

After a hot spell of market shopping around the streets of St John's you will love the cool atmosphere of this bar. We only had cocktails but they were delicious & refreshing. The food we saw also looked appetising. Great place to rest a while

Had a lovely lunch here. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the busy streets below while enjoying a good British beer and decent food. Excellent. Not the fastest service in the world but this is the Caribbean and so just sit back and soak up the lazy bustle and heat of the sun.

upstairs cafe with comfortable benches and good food. A place to sit quietly in the middle of town. Veranda with a cool breeze.

We are in Antigua now. We ate at Hemingways yesterday for lunch and I left we a disappointed taste. Slow service and at best, average food. There are better in Antigua.

We popped in for a coffee. A few people popped in about the same time. A couple of menus were quite literally thrown in our direction. One woman was busy mopping the floor and another was doing something behind the bar. The woman with the mop brought menus to a couple who had just arrived then took their order, ignoring... More
