We've been to this place twice. Both times we had lunch and it was excellent. Today was a chicken curry and jerk wings with rice, black beans and salad. Bonus Johnny case. For 12$ was great. Very clean.

I just discovered this place even though it appears to be a local favorite. Great food. Hard working staff and a Caribbean atmosphere

The pork jerk soup is just the right amount of spice. A thick and flavourful soup with chunks of spicy pork. And bonus marks for the Johnny Cakes that come with it. Always a great place no mater what you order. Excellent.

A north shore restaurant with Jamaica flare and Bob Marley live in the background..north shore gem. Personally I like breakfast and Jam Cam serves it up! Traditional or Jamaican spice it's your call..lunches and dinner also has the same Jamaican flavours..if you like the spice then drop in for great food and cool atmosphere...all at a reasonable cost..Family or friends...
