We stop here every so often. They start you out with Jonny cakes, which is a great way to sample a few of the many hot sauces. Portions are large and usually too much to finish. The sweetfire porker is good, one time was so spicy my scalp was sweating. I love the heat. The ribs are good as well.... More

Having read many positive reviews, I was very eager to try this place, but was not as good as I was hoping. I had a spicy porkchop dish, and my wife had the mahi mahi special. She quite liked her dish, and mine was good, but not great. It was a fun atmosphere and very friendly staff, the food just... More

Fast and friendly service, yummy food and cocktails, and a funky but very casual atmosphere. The owner is a wonderful guy who is the icing on the cake to this overall wonderful place. My whole family, 2 years old to 62 years old, loved the experience. Try the mango rum milkshake and the jerky birdy!!

This small cafe has great fresh food and a unique atmosphere...The owner comes to every table to make sure you are enjoying yourself and to make suggestions, or try out a new dessert he's been working on.......the key lime pie is like no other, no matter how full you think you are,

Waited too long to try this place! Felt like being in a Jamaican restaurant minus the heat and humidity. Jerk chicken was delicious, a Canadian version but still very good. And yes, rice n peas is what Jamaicans call rice n kidney beans. 😀

This was the first time we ate here, I had the curry goat special and my wife had peanut shrimp. Both were excellent. The shrimp did surprise us as we were expecting shrimp with peanuts and it turns out its shrimp in a peanut butter sauce. They were very good though, never had anything like it. Finished off with a... More

What a great hole in the wall place. Excellent service and just awesome food. The location and appearance aren't anything to write home about. The food is why you go!!

Great little café with yummy food but not authentic. Jerk chicken is a boneless chicken breast??? No dumplings??? Jerk pork was a centre cut boneless pork chop......why, why, why? Another case of so close and so far............wish the kitchen would upgrade. Still worth a visit if you don't care and want a unique little place.

Can't imagine how anyone can improve on chicken fingers, but they've done it! You've got to try it. I've also had dinner here with friends and each of us got something that was very tasty...goat stew included. But you have to have the key lime pie. Yum! Service was a bit slow for our lunch but the server was very... More
