“Excellent sandwiches to go...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I ordered sandwiches a couple of times on my way through town (on my way to the multitude of clear-blue dive sites nearby). The "Cuban" was great, as was a sandwich who's name I've forgotten... it had avocado, turkey, lots of fresh veggies, etc. The bread was delicious as well...

“Great Sandwiches - relief from the Ritz....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

As a high end hotel frequenter (Four Season/St. Regis), and a food snob, I feel qualified to offer the following:

While staying at the Ritz and growing increasingly sick of the overpriced mediocre fare, Paperman's quickly became our morning ritual (it is a 5-7 minute walk). Coffee and sandwiches (which are all fantastic - I was home for a week before I kicked the craving). Baked goods are also very good, and everything is 20+% less expensive, and more importantly, 100% better, than the Ritz.

Note: I wouldn't say its not kid friendly (certainly there were kids in and out - mine included) there were no high chairs - difficult to have your kid on your lap with a hot mug of coffee within arms reach.

“It's not a restaurant...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

...it's a coffee shop that does very good, overpriced coffee with perfectly reasonable pre-prepared mini-salads, and been-sat-here-all-morning baguettes, albeit with fresh-tasting veg. Oh, and they also do soup.
Chairs are horribly uncomfortable small, wooden things except the two easy chairs and a sofa at the front of the shop.
I go there...when I have to.

“Best coffee on Grand Cayman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We found Paperman's to be the best place for coffee on Grand Cayman. If you are a coffee enthusiast this is the place to indulge. We also enjoyed their sandwiches. Despite the name, Paperman's serves their beverages in real mugs vs. Starbucks paper cups. We felt a very comfortable atmosphere inside the coffeehouse and the owner was particularly friendly. We were tourists but we liked the fact that it seemed to be popular with the locals too.

“Great Sandwiches.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

The sandwiches are great and the atmosphere. The coffee is not to my tasting but other people seem to enjoy it.
