A liitle pricy

Located close to the general centre of shops caring a wide selection of goods, it is certainly handy, but if you are staying for a while & want an array of food items, I would opt for Joy's store, a cheaper option.

Best burgers ever!. They have an outside area where you can sit comfortably at a table under cover. Beautiful burgers and reasonably priced. We had brunch there several times during our 8 days. The store is a mix of general food stuff, fresh fish & salads, chickens by order, gifts, clothing, magazines, etc. A great, no frills shop.

All good on the island are expensive because of sea freight costs. Very conveniently located. Does a good selection of burgers and chips at lunchtime. Open from 9am to 6pm.

This general store carries just about anything you would need. They even have fresh bread rolls every day. You can get a hamburger or other fast food and practically any groceries including milk, juice etc. They also carry post cards and t-shirts - you need to check it out.

You will be better served to use the Co op and Joys Store. I found the staff unhelpful and the product over priced compared to other stores. However if you like greasy food this is the place
