I really enjoy the baristas, atmosphere, vibes, visitors, and workspace at Rock Island. My only complaint is that it's absolutely freezing inside wit AC on full blast. One barista wears sweats behind the bar the entire day and I've found myself doubling up sweatshirts just to sit comfortably in the work area. I guess they only have one AC and... More

Coffee culture hasn't quite caught up with Bermuda, so cafes are few and far between. Rock Island Coffee is the place to go in Hamilton--great baristas who make perfect espresso, cappuccino, latte. The baked goods are obviously fresh and homemade. Great spot for breakfast or a break. We were there last summer and this as well.

Great coffee and brownies, cakes, everything I should avoid LOL. The people are "artsy" and friendly. Great spot to relax and read a book or do your computer work.

I've been here at least a dozen times. I really like this place. I can always get work done. I highly recommend the filthy chai and ices latte.

I moved to Bermuda in 2013 and I was disappointed that there wasn't a Starbucks (or any other franchised restaurants for that matter). However after my first cup of coffee in this delightful little venue, I no longer missed it....in fact much, much better and more consistent than Starbucks. Roasted on premises, it's a great brew! Their hours are a... More

Great local spot for good coffee. The walnut and zucchini bread is also delicious. They apparently roast their own beans here and have bags of coffee for purchase as well. Have been there twice for coffee within 3 days after finding a different dud coffee shop.
