Best coffee in Jamaica

Breakfast is good here. It is a rustic operation with the view as its biggest draw. After trying Jamaican coffee from Kingston to Negril, I didn't know what the fuss was about. I kept tasting bitter coffee that needed the condensed milk to make it drinkable. The coffee at Peewee's, by contrast, is... read more

Not sure what to make of this place. It was early in the day (11 am or so), we stopped in & right off the bat something didn't seem right. For all we know, the real staff wasn't in yet & local hoodlums were running the place. We bought 2 drinks, guy walks off out to the street with the... More

We've been going to Pewee's Restaurant & Bar for about 15 years now. Elvis is behind the bar and often will also cook breakfast. We brought some friends by for breakfast and Elvis did a great job on all our meals. Our friends decided to take a dip in the warm Caribbean water while breakfast was being made. GREAT location,...

Walk-up, leave your order at the front and sit down with a gorgeous view. Friendly service (Elvis was in charge for the days we visited). Good, simple food. Lowest price breakfast in the area.

Had breakfast everyday at Pewees! The coffee was always hot and the sweet milk that came with - YUMM! Breakfast was always good, also well priced. The best of it all is the amazing view!! They're are stairs leading down to the water to enjoy a quick dip also if you're waiting on breakfast! Also had lobster dinner with Elvis... More

I have the best memories of Negril. I was there as a 16 year old girl 29 years ago on a trip with a group of family friends. I recommend everyone order a peewee's special daiquiri! Best trip of my life. Trying hard to talk my hubby into a plane trip to celebrate my birthday in March!

You won't meet a nicer person than Elvis, the gentleman who runs Pewee's. It's two houses over from the Blue Cave Castle and close to other accommodations like Samsara, etc. Elvis makes an awesome breakfast for a very reasonable price - if you want to be full for the day, make sure to try his Jamaican take on Eggs Benedict!...

Rustic spot with nice clifftop views. Coffee came quickly. Food was slow but good when it did finally arrive. We were the only customers so it wasn't like they were busy. Bacon and egg sandwiches. Very crispy bacon.

Peewee served a great breakfast that is very generous portion wise. It is extremely cheap, $500j including coffee! Just be sure to have at least an hour or more as it takes a while especially if there is more than one table. With high season coming, I'm sure he'll be busy so hopefully he can figure a way to be...
