When we visit Dominica, we try to do something new each time we go. However there is one spot we try to go to each time and that is to visit Jackie for a fresh and wonderful lunch. This time our choices were tuna (fresh of course) or pork. Both dishes could be prepared in a gluten free manor and... More

The thick walls, formerly a primitive seawall, keep the heat out to a certain extent, very welcome on the hot lunchtime we spent in Roseau. The service at this cafe is impeccable. We said we were after a light lunch and the hostess suggested some lovely sandwiches that were exactly what we were after. It may not sound like much... More

Once in Roseau I have lunch there. It is located right on the street opposite the Harbour terminal. Staff are friendly, the local food cooked fresh and prices are reasonable. They offer usually fish, chicken or pork in a variety of ways. Juices such as tamarind or passion fruit are the norm, you must try. This is a must once... More

Well worth a meal at this discreet little restaurant. Historical as well as delivering lovely meals. Limited menu.......chicken or fish.......but quite fresh and delicious. Tamarind juice is a must try. They make their own hot sauce. Service is a bit slow, similar to other restaurants, but very friendly and polite. Breakfast and lunch only.

Eggs, omelets, toast, bacon and ham served with small salad. Quaint and friendly. Service was attentive and view was nice. Best breakfast we had during our 10 day stay on the island. Lunch menu looked great as well. Highly recommend!

Cartwheel Cafe is located right opposite the cruise ship terminal on the Bay Front. it is a great place to stop over for some of Jackie's wonderful fruit juices and to either sample some of the local breakfasts or lunches offered for the day. The owner Jackie is always around to have a chat or offer suggestions for your stay... More

Had a simple breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast with fruit juice at Cartwheel Cafe. Convenient location with good service. Limited menu but worked to fill us up before a day of excursions. Seemed to be popular with locals as well - always a good sign.

I loved getting breakfast at Cartwheel, and I came back more than once during my stay. The food was delicious, the service was very friendly, and I enjoyed the location close to the ocean. The prices here are also very fair, and Jackie (the owner) is very welcoming and helpful.
