Wonderful for a quite coffee or salad for lunch. Look for this coffee shop, especially if the cruise boats are in, and it is shaded and quite

I had a chicken salad with homemade mango salsa. The chicken was flattened, battered and deep fried in thin strips perfectly and the mango salsa was fresh and slightly tart, very falvourful. Great chat with the owner.

Stopped for a bite of lunch because the place looked busy. Turns out this was a good sign as the lunch - blackened chicken sandwich with hand made coleslaw was great!! Definitely give cafe Napoleon a try if you're near.

Our flight was delayed so we decided to come see St. John and ended up at Cafe Napoleon. Given that it's Easter Weekend most places were closed but not this one. We enjoyed our breakfast, staff and cute location.

We came in a quick stop to have a beer which we had in around 30 minutes. When we asked for another, the waitress arrived to kick us out asking us to pay with no second beer.

I have visited Cafe Napoleon a few times when in St John, Antigua. This is a relaxed semi-open air cafe on the wharf area, serving a nice selection of meals ranging from typical Caribbean fare to Hamburgers. My favorite dish is their Colombo Chicken Curry,...More

The café is a great place to stop for a break. Lunch, a snack, a drink or maybe dessert can all be found at Café Napoleon. There is a complete bar with many signature drinks. We did not have a meal but did have drinks...More

Café Napoleon is our first stop when visiting St Johns, great coffee served with a smile. Lovely eats off their choice menu, I have had some great tastes at this little café, no wonder it is always busy.

I was there in July, so the change must have been sudden. The location we went to was right off of the cruise port in the middle of some shops.

Beautifully nestled in the heart of Historic Redcliffe Quay in St. John's, Cafe Napoleon was formerly an old sugar warehouse by a busy dockside. Sympathetically renovated, the restaurant serves a cosmopolitan menu using the finest fresh, local fish, meat, vegetables & fruits. The homemade desserts are just mouthwatering! Dont want to eat, then just chill with a Cocktail in the new Lounge Bar looking out at the beuatiful gardens and watersedge. You can be certain of the warmest of welcomes and excellent customer service from owner, Lisa and her team.
