Femmes du Chalet was previously known as the Breakfast Shed and some individuals continue to call it by that name. This institution started out as a group of women preparing meals to serve to men who worked on the port off loading ships, as such they served large portions for men performing physically hard work. This tradition of large portion sizes has continued, although the clientele has expanded tremendously beyond port workers.
The food served here is truly local Trinidad cuisine both for breakfast and lunch. They do not serve dinner. The building housing this institution is an upgraded version created because there was an uproar when the previous building was torn down to create high rise towers. The building is on the waterfront and open on two sides to give a view of the ocean and allow the sea breezes to flow through. Seating is on picnic type tables with benches. On entering there are several cooks arranged in an L shape and you choose which person you want to order lunch from, with all the meals on display.
