The cafe is somewhat small, but adequate. Best for a group of 2-6 people. Service has been absolutely superior to almost all breakfast establishments in Kamloops. Friendly and considerate staff never let you sit with an empty glass/mug. The food however steals the show by far. If you enjoy spicy and savory meals, this place has what you're looking for...

Spicy, smokey with Caribbean roots. I've had nothing but great food every time I've been here. The Jerk Chicken club is to die for.

Everytime I come to the cafe. The staff are smiling, and on the ball!! They seat you right away, service is swift! The smell of the food makes your tummy growl.

Full of flavour. Clean environment. Pleasant service. Bright. Unique and authentic. Spicy I had the jerk club and crunchy fries with calapso sauce. Partner had bbq pulled pork sandwich and delicious pea soup. Highly recommend. We will be back to try the jerk chicken, seasoned rice and Johnny cakes!!!

Have visited for breakfast and lunch. We love it. The food is always good, and nice to have something different from the traditional Canadian breakfast. The presentation is always lovely, staff friendly.

My daughter and her husband suggested we come here for their breakfast. After having two Jamaican breakfast menu items, we can now join them in their praise for this place. The food was uniquely spicy, but not overpowering. The service was exceptional as well. Well worth the effort of finding.

Thank Ed N
