Mango cafe is somewhat famous upon the island amongst tourists and locals alike. Whilst most visitors make a beeline for the town, make time to venture away from the main tourist streets towars the south of the island – you’ll not only stumble upon some more interesting sights and eateries, but you’ll locate this gem which serves the best (that’s right, we said it) breakfasts in the world.
The cafe specialises in favourite breakfast meals but with a carribean twist; this small 20-seat cafe has food so tasty you won’t be able to limit yourself to just the one visit.
Unsurprisingly it is currently rated number 2 on Tripadvisor. We recommend ordering the breakfast quesadillas for egg and bacon lovers, or the large and fluffy hot cakes for a sweet tooth. Not a place for those on a diet, each meal is huge and stuffed full of mouth watering ingredients. And don’t forget to try every flavour of juice – yes even the hibiscous and tamarind!
Beyond the food, Mango cafe has an excellent, relaxed atmosphere and service. The decor is understated and full of charm; colourful mixed wooden chairs and tables fill the L-shape room and the walls are decorated with american license plates and patterned tiles.
Located on a corner in a suburb on the island’s east coastal road, you won’t be able to miss it with the telltale line of golf carts parked haphazardly outside.
For us penny-pinching backpackers the food isn’t exactly cheap, but the large portions and bottomless cups of rich coffee guarantee satisfaction.
Open from 7am until 3pm every day, Mango Cafe is immensely satisfying after a long lie-in or morning walk along the coast. It’s worth wondering across to the pretty church opposite too.
