I have reviewed Beach Bum Cafe separately from Sunset Cove as I think Ken deserves a special mention for his cooking alone. This guy is an oustanding chef who cooks with his soul, every dish has a little of Ken in it and takes your taste buds on a culinary world tour.

We only stayed long enough to share a few entrees, but they were fresh, local, and very good. The chef introduced us to the three resident iguanas; the kids loved this! An unexpected gem.

Our hotel told us about this quaint little restaurant right on the beach. The Owner and Chef, Ken, was extremely personable and kind to chat with. The Conch chowder and Skip Jack Tuna were as fresh as they come... Right out of the ocean that day! Also best sunset on the island!! YUM!!! Will be back!

The restaurant is a simple wood and screen structure on the beach with fold out tables and sodas in cans. Simple and easy. David... More

We had a lunch and breakfast with Ken at the Beach Bum cafe during our week on Little Cayman. Enjoyed the fruit smoothies and rotating menu. And the BBQ!

A great approach to cooking on an small island. By focusing on what is fresh and available (sometimes a few hours out of the water!), Ken serves up some delicious and inventive dishes. He was quick to respond to dietary restrictions and showed a true love for food, cooking, and hospitality. We enjoyed some great southern BBQ (pulled pork and... More
