A brightly coloured gem of a spot well known for fresh foods, friendly service and great views in a setting of locally made handicraft, art, jewellery and clothing. We are nestled in the village of Lambeau near to Scarborough Tobago. Our decor is that of a rustic and handmade finish with a natural atmosphere for those that enjoy the beauty of nature.

The sea view as well as indoor and outdoor seating allow for a beautiful relaxing ambience. It may be wise to make a reservation before arriving. My party enjoyed coffee as we arrived close to closing time. We look forward to returning to the chocolate...shopMore

My new favorite spot for lunch. Delicious food, adequate portions, great service- just a lovely experience and amazing value. Local fruit juice was perfect, appetizer ROCKED and desert was to die for. We had crab backs, fried flying fish, fish salad and finished with the...fudgy brownie. Yup! Can’t wait to return for breakfast soon.More

Shorethings is my regular go to spot in Tobago for crepes and their yummy lime cheesecake. The drive along the Lambeau shoreline is reminiscent of Manzanilla. The outside tables look over the sparkling azure waters, but the waves were rough this visit and we did...not spot the usual turtle. Go for coffee and cheesecake, saturday local breakfast or a chill lynch with gorgeous waves.More

Go for the coconut cream pie. It is amazing. The view is pretty nice as well. Giselle is really friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

We went for dessert, because unfortunately we were heading towards the airport to leave Tobago. But what a stop! We loved the ambient, in front of the sea, saw some sea turtles and enjoyed wonderful desserts and coffee. We ordered the Lime Cheesecake (I think...that’s what it’s called) and the Fudgy Brownie! So good! Not too sweet and amazing taste, perfect for an afternoon in Tobago! Another really important note is the service. The lady seemed to be the owner and she was so warm and welcoming, it felt even better to have visited her spot! She also offered a chocolate tasting, which we couldn’t do because of time, but we entered just to take a small sniff and it made us regret not planning to go there with more time in our hands! Next time we go to Tobago, we’ll do the testing for sure and enjoy some other desserts!More

Initially visited this establishment to check out Tobago Chocolate Delights run by an affable gentleman Jean Claude, he makes the most sublime chocolate ,not realizing the cafe , craft shop and chocolate shop where all under one roof. He produces fine 60% fine chocolate with...no chemical additives and will happily talk about the process of an artisan chocolate maker , with I might add, much passion . Situated about 15/20 minutes from Crown Point 25 Old Milford Road, it's on the right if you approach from Crown Point , can be missed if the big chocolate sign is not up , like we did .This building is beautifully situated among the greenery right on the cliffside, and cooled by delightful Atlantic winds, this is a lovely little café offering a menu of homemade pizza, burgers , salads and daily lunch specials, served on a veranda or the waterside terrace. On our visit we sampled coconut water, then daily special of barracuda, served with salad , vegetable rice , stewed melongene .Desert of lemon meringue pie rounded off the meal. Lovely authentic food , served by a very pleasant and efficient waitress with owner Giselle officiating proceedings. It wont break the bank when bill is presented. This excellent rustic café also houses a wonderful shop , stocked with all manner of books , paintings , postcards and greeting cards, artwork, craft pieces and foodie treats- all of which are made in Trinidad & Tobago.Opening hours - Monday - FridaMore

A small, rustic restaurant overlooking the ocean. The menu is does not have a lot of variety but the food served was good. The desserts are the highlight. There is a small souvenir shop on the compound. The restaurant is worth checking out if in...the area.More
