Devon house is a must visit within Kingston and the lovely bakery produces the best patties in town. Cakes are not bad either...

Devon House does their patties differently that Juicy or Tastee. The patties here are square shapes and the crust is softer and flakier. Definitely worth a try and you can't beat the price. The staff is friendly and the spot is a local favorite.

Been here a handful of times, the bakery is reasonably good, the ice cream kiosk does well. You do get tired of people saying it's the best ice cream in the world but who have probably not been far, to put their assumptions to the test. In particular avoid the restaurants here. The food is decidedly average (being kind) and... More

Part of the Devon House complex, we tried our first patty. Staff were extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. I recommend the fish patty. Seating is outside only in a beautiful garden.

The baked goods are always freshly made. I haven't tried the cakes, so I'm not sure about that, but the patties are perfectly flaky. The lobster patty is a bit expensive but absolutely worth it with the big chunks of lobster you get in the patties. The other varieties of patties are very affordable. It's a pleasant environment as well.

Sharing a beautiful courtyard at the Devon House with other fabulous foodie spots, the bakery maintains the same high standards as its neighbours. I have never been a fan of Jamaican patties but thge ones here are completely different than others I've tried. Being a vegetarian I enjoyed the 'power' patties made with soy. My husband loved the lobster and... More

The cakes and pastries look just great. I opted for the brownie and cream soda. It was a treat at a good price too.

I have tried few patties while in Kingston, but these in Devon house were the best. I have tried shrimp, chicken and beef and all of them were great.They also have a fish one and soya for vegeterians and i did not hear a bad word about the taste neither. Definitely a must try while in Jamaica.

Yummy soy and shrimp patties, although a bit spicy for me. Rum n raisin cheesecake is out of the world.
