One cannot blame being a small island for such bad service. From the cold coffee to the long wait for a simple breakfast order (nothing fancy just scrambled eggs and toast) to the horrible attitude of the staff. The female waitress who took our order seemed offended that we asked her to repeat what she said. With different accents this... More

Gingerbread Café was our first stop on arrival to Bequia for breakfast. We were initially heading to The Green Boley further along the Belmont Walkway but found them closed at 10am on Saturday morning. We saw that there were lots of patrons under the trees out front at Gingerbread so we decided to give it a try. We did however... More

Used the gingerbread most days whilst on the island, for coffee, tea and a snack under the tree, watching the world go by. Excellent coffee, cinnamon buns a must!! Service was good, price reasonable. Cant comment on lunch or dinner as had neither here. Great meeting spot. Give it a try.

The Gingerbread Restaurant was our first place we ate on the western side of the island and that was on a Sunday, We had good service and we listened to live music - a local string band, that was very interesting and original.

In February 2014, we had a nice lunch at the café so I thought the restaurant would be worth a chance for dinner. Bad idea. First, they were out of half of their menu items. Okay, Bequia is an island so you can understand that they might not have received shipment of items from off-island, but fish? Others in the... More

Lovely coffee, fantastic cinnamon buns, good cakes. Love sitting under the trees watching the world go by on and off the water, well used meeting place for coffee and gossip.

As long term Caribbean visitors we are acclimatised to some of the aspects of 'Caribbean time' but the poor service and poor value for money of the meal we had at the Gingerbread House restaurant was staggering. It was Sunday lunch on a busy music festival weekend, but there appeared to be no management presence. Tables were not cleared, when... More

Stopped for an ice cream while walking the boardwalk. A lovely little spot to relax on an Adirondack chair in the shade. Cones and cups consist of EXACTLY one scoop ...not one drop more. It is refreshing but not as creamy as I had hoped.
