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.

get my vote in this lovely place that also serves tea, coffee and house lemonade. The patties are incredible, flaky dough, generous filling, with a little spicy touch, the doughnuts are super fresh, and the rum cake is firm, but it melts in your mouth, and it contains a respectable amount of rum!! The places serves danishes, cookies, all kinds... More

Please please please, never go to the Devon House Bakery and not try the Shrimp patty. If they are out of shrimp patty, sit and wait until they have more. Because the patty is well loved, they normally run out but if you wait about 20-30 minutes they will have it available. To say this is the best shrimp patty... More

Tried the fish patties, they were the spiciest after the shrimp. Flaky, fresh and flavorful. The prices were very reasonable. The only problem was that there wasn't a lot of places to sit down to eat.
