I can't remember how many times I've driven down Quadra St near Hillside Ave and smelled this intoxicating aroma of spices. I spotted this place kinda yellow coloured painted outside and the sign Caribbean Cafe. I've located the source of the smell of spices. This...More

Recently I arranged to meet a friend at a restaurant up the block, but she went here instead. Don't ask. Anyway, she ended up bringing her food and coffee up to the other restaurant and kept raving about how good it was. So after eating...More

Delicious food, charming staff, and a unique setting. The samosas and jerk chicken were outstanding. Five marks out of five.

One meal was so salty it was inedible, 2 meals tasted like old bland stew, 1 meal was good. Service was poor, floor was dirty under counters, surfaces like sideboards and watercooler were dusty. Wont go there ever again.

If you want to know what the food tastes like: Head across the street to Fairways Grocery, pick up something from the freezer section and reheat it in a crappy microwave from the Goodwill. That way the service will be faster too.

James makes great food, with yummy soups, roti, samosas and patties. Intense coffee too. It's an international meeting place with interesting conversations, and food to go or enjoy at this cozy spot.

I eat here whenever I have the chance, andI have not been let down yet! Don't be put off by the run down, and somewhat unkempt decor of the place. It just adds to the charm. :-) The owner, James, cooks up a fresh batch...More
