“Only about a 10 minute walk to Historic Gardners Basin. The best for Sunsets behind the amazing Marina Casino district. We love anything with the Jerk seasoning (Shrimp, Wings, Pork Chops). Fantastic outdoor seating looking over the water and marina. ”

Café

“Yanni’s has hands down the best brunch on the island, with delicious combinations and giant portions. As a bonus, Hot Bagels and More operates from within Yanni’s, so you can either go here to pick up a dozen freshly baked bagels with their homemade cream cheeses or sit down for a full meal.”
