What: Cafe Indigo
Where: Indigo Courtyard, off of Hwy 1 in St. James, 2nd floor. Tel. 246-432-0968 [Map]
Why: This small, blue-hued restaurant may be a key hangout for British nationals and expats due to its Brit-friendly menu, but the real star of Cafe Indigo definitely isn’t the fish and chips. After choosing to pass the afternoon seated by the window for lunch, Hills and I quickly discovered that aside from their daily specials, this eatery’s knockout is the rum punch. Made in traditional Bajan fashion with both nutmeg and Falernum, we were on our second round before the food came. The menu is pretty straight ahead cafe fare, including wraps, salads and pasta, but if day-drinking is your thing than Cafe Indigo is an unexpected winner at a great price. And lunch may be your best bet because this cafe is only open for dinner on Tuesday and Thursday, so plan accordingly.
