4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

Very tasty food, great portion sizes. Nice change from spicy Caribbean food :) owner is a lovely man- chatty, friendly, full of smiles. Prices are very reasonable and drink is included in many meal options :)
Visited quite few times during our stay and never disappointed.

“Don't bother to waste your time and money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

We sat under a dirty white tarpaulin tent; table ridden with flies and had to wait 1 hour for our food. When it did arrive, our party of 3 each got their food at different times. The food is average and overpriced.

“Tasty food but appearance needs improving”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Waffles were tasty. But portion sizes need to increase to compensate for cost. Place must look more appealing. Washroom facility must improve. Could be a fantastic place if surroundings are desirable

“What a mess”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We came here after my suggestion that we eat some pancakes which happens to be a favorite of mine. We went up to the front desk area awaiting some attention. The guy wasn't friendly at all and had an attitude. We had to practically ask for a menu and to be seated. We made our orders and sat down for what seemed like hours. It's like we had been completely forgotten. No one came to ask if we needed drinks or any assistance. Service everywhere was just so slow and inattentive. 30 mins had passed and we still had not gotten any word as to what was going on. Eventually the guy came to say that a large table had made reservations and we would have to wait a bit before we got our food. We understood and continued waited for another 30 mins but it was just ridiculous. We had just arrived in Tobago from an early flight and had not had any breakfast as yet. We cancelled our order and left just before another table did the same.

We decided to try again the next day but this time we made an order for takeaway as soon as their doors opened up. We went to the supermarket and returned to our guesthouse where we called and followed up. It was over an hour, no guests, no lines and our breakfast still wasn't ready. How absurd is that? It's just pancakes! About an hour later we checked again and my boyfriend went to pick it up.

The price was ridiculous for such a small portion of food added on to 2+ hours of waiting time. I ordered the chocolate chip pancake and it tasted ok I guess if you disregard the fact that it wasn't too soft and spongy. The bacon wasn't any better. The tea was literally cold. I kid you not. The juice tasted like it was stale and left out in the sun from the day before. I threw it straight down the drain. The fruit cup was poorly arranged and tasted exactly the same as the fruit juice so I threw that as well.

I wouldn't recommend this place to my enemy. There are better breakfast places in Tobago or why not just buy a few groceries and make your own breakfast. That way it would be fresh and you'd know what you're eating.
