Stopped here for luncheon day and the food is pretty good. I had the local fish (no idea what it was) which was cooked in a jerk style inside a bun, with salad and fries. Tasted pretty good although a little too much jerk. Water was ice cold and refreshing. Feels like the place needs a freshening up with the... More

Food was decent, pricing was OK, no alcohol license (BYOB), could use a bit of freshening up to make it more inviting. If you are staying there might make sense to have breakfast or lunch. Enjoyed the fresh cut fries and burger was decent (although I typically avoid med rare burgers). Service was better than at the Hungry Iguana.

My wife and I ate here many times during our recent nine-day stay at Sunset Cove Resort. Most of the meals served at The Beach Bum Café are for guests staying at the Sunset Cove Resort. The Beach Bum Café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although the menu is somewhat limited, all of the food we had here was very... More

Service is personal in this quaint little Cafe. We found Ken is the best chef and he cooks to perfection. We stayed in the complex as well as the food was good and the location on the beach was so relaxing.

The Beach Bum Cafe is part of the Sunset Cove resort on Little cayman. It is a recent addition to this very laid back island. The location on the sea edge everything you would want of a Caribbean island location, if you are looking to be close to nature, the sea, away from commercialism and totally in tune with the...

Make sure you save a night or two to visit Ken at this wonderful little place in Little Cayman. Each of the five of us loved our food, from shrimp to the most delicious burger I think I have ever had. Ken has worked on a Mercy ship in Africa and is varied in his culinary skills. One friend has... More

During our first days on Little, I heard two people say they had recently eaten here. But, when i heard them describing what they ate, i thought it was some posh place that would require more than shorts and sandals. But, on the one 24-hour period we rented a car, we thought we would see what was out there to... More

I love this place. The jerk chicken sandwich is just simply amazing. You can tell the food is freshly prepared and the chef puts a lot of care into the food. It is just like having a home cooked meal away from home. The garlic mash potatoes and jerk bbq chicken is also excellent. Another great thing about this place... More

We loved breakfast here but other meals were also good. Chef Ken is eager to please and is flexible so don't be shy and ask. If you are not staying at this resort (Sunset Cove), do go there for a meal or few. Just remember to bring your own wine/drinks as they do not serve alcohol there. BYOB is very... More
