We dined at Glady's Cafe on the recommendation of a few shop keepers in downtown. As an avid lover of Caribbean food I had high expectations after hearing about all the famous people who've made stops at this eatery. We ordered the Jerk Chicken sandwich, some fish dish I can't recall and of course the chicken roti with a side... More

This place is a must stop when in town. Location, food, service is just wonderful. The mix of local color flavors and old world charm. My third trip here in 3 months. The staff with their warm smiles and welcoming air makes this a real gem!

We stopped in here while wandering around town on a rainy afternoon for lunch. It is a quaint place with friendly service and food that was delicious and reasonably priced. We had the lobster sandwich and Roti (A MUST HAVE).

While advertised as the best local food for breakfast and lunch, Glady's Café does not offer any special Caribbean breakfast items although we did like the Chicken Roti, local soup and Goat Curry which were fine. If you're there, go ahead an sit down. But, not worth any special trip.
