Improve this listing
A brightly coloured gem of a spot well known for fresh foods, friendly service and great views in a setting of locally made handicraft, art, jewellery and clothing. We are nestled in the village of Lambeau near to Scarborough Tobago. Our decor is that of a rustic and handmade finish with a natural atmosphere for those that enjoy the beauty of nature.

We only called in for a morning coffee but sat and watched the birds feeding and chatted to the staff. Lots of good suggestions about what to see on the island.

Have visited this seaside cafe many times. A great location with good food and cold drinks makes an unbeatable combination. High number of repeat visitors and local residents.. That says it all. Shore Things is one of the must-do places in Tobago.
