Always look forward to walking up to the TB Cyber café, it's how I know I'm really in the BVI. The 1st time I visited was from a charter sailboat docked in the bay, and now make it a point to visit every time. The beach shack feel to the place suits a Californian just fine, it's a nice break from the tourist trap feel of other locales in the islands. The low palm frond awnings, the sparse décor, the resident cats...There's a rustic charm about the place that makes certain people want to chuck it all and live on a sailboat or surf shack. The resort crowd might not get this place...
As for any complaints about the owner or service - my advice is this; try a simple "good morning/afternoon/evening" before you order your food or drink. You'd be amazed how far it goes all over the islands. It's a simple polite formality that most of us western tourists have blown past and forgotten in our hurried frantic lifestyle. You're not ordering from McDonalds, and you're not buying wifi from the Marriot. Take a deep breath, order a drink, swing a hammock outside and pet a cat. Look around. Slow down. If you're in that much of a hurry to read emails you shoulda stayed home.
Last bit, the owner is one of the coolest guys around, and has a lovely, dry sense of humor. Was in there on my 1st trip, kinda late, and I let rip with a few curse words as construction workers do. The owner behind the bar chimes in, "Would you mind your language, there's ladies here..."
Taken by surprise and feeling smart, I look around and see no women in the place at that moment. I tell him as much.
He looks me right in the eye and deadpans - "They're in the freezer" Aaaahahaha
Can't wait to go back and sit on the deck with the cats and roosters :)
Lastly, a note to those staying on Scrub Island, Marina Cay, or a sailboat - provision at the market down the beach from the café, reasonable prices for Tortola. Especially when compared to the small store on Scrub, this one has 10 times the selection at half the price.
