Looking some authentic local food in downtown Philipsburg? We've got that and cold, exotic local fruit juices just one short block off the hustle and bustle of Front Street at 50 Back Street near the head of town. Take a stroll down Pastoriesteeg (which runs between Majesty Jewelers and Liz Claiborn) past the Catholic Rectory to the Philipsburg Community and Cultural Center.

We're open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday. Tuesday through Thursday we do happy hour with half price drinks from 5PM to 7PM and serve authentic island dishes until 10PM. On Friday and Saturday we repeat the happy hour and snacks and small plates are available until 10PM.


  We have a full bar (below) and feature healthful fresh vegetable and fruit drinks. On the right is a tasty carrot and orange juice cocktail with a hint of cane sugar, all natural, all healthful. Lunch plates feature a vegetarian or meat main course with rice and peas and one side. The price is about $8, depending on the main course. Extra sides (and we have several that you will want to try) are $3. Main courses and sides change with market availability and the whim of the chef, but you can count on a vegetarian course, some fish, and some chicken. Hot sauce is free but the antidote (an ice cold Presidente) costs $2. Below in the center is a poetry reading. On the right is a shot from the fantastic Créole buffet that we produce on the last Thursday of every month. Call 522 9927 for reservations.   Carrot and orange juice
