A Coffee Guide to Barbados


The Parlament of Barbados
Bridgetown, Barbados

Bridgetown, Barbados is the capital of Barbados, and one of the most visited island in the Eastern Caribbean. B’dos or BIM as the locals call it is home to the most rum shops per capita in the world. Although it’s known for its specialty rum, B’dos has an emerging coffee scene with excellent variety.


Whether you’re visiting the island for pure pleasure, or a much needed workcation, you can grab your favorite caffeinated drink and plow through your work or relax with some of the caribbean’s most heavenly beaches.


Get ready to ditch the hotel or cruise coffee stations, and head out to one of the five spots listed below. They won’t disappoint!


Bliss Cafe, Dover

Bliss Cafe


This family owned cafe is warmly decorated with tropical colors and palm trees that welcome you along with the smell of freshly brewed coffee.The owner, Ray, and his family ditched the UK to come back to their caribbean roots and start a family cafe that lives up to its name: Bliss Cafe. If you’re looking for anything other than caffeine you’ve come to the wrong place, because they only serve COFFEE based drinks--and every drink is like finding solid gold!


Some of our favorites include their Mint Mocha and the Brown Butter Toffy Latte. The Mint Mocha is a perfectly balanced cappuccino--it’s refreshing with just the right notes of mint and chocolate. The Brown Butter Toffy Latte is creamy, with distinct notes of caramel and hazelnuts. But if you’re looking for a classic, their cappuccino will do the trick.


An added bonus is the exceptional quality of their food! Be sure to check them out the next time you’re visiting B’dos!


Bliss Cafe is located in Dover at Dover Road Saint Lawrence Gap Unit 2 Eden, Barbados. They're closed on Sundays and Mondays. Check them out on Facebook and Instagram.


ArtSplash, Hastings

ArtSplash


Looking for coffee, brunch, culture, and a view of the south coast? Then look no further than ArtSplash. This cafe was originally created to highlight local artisans but is now known for so much more than their art. You can sit indoors or enjoy the seabreeze on their porch, but be sure to try the following.


Their Americano is superb, especially when paired with one of their breakfast offerings. But, if you’re looking for something that packs more of a punch, grab an espresso while catching the sunrise and listening to the sounds of the waves--it’s something special!


ArtSplash is located in Hastings at Highway 7, Bridgetown, Barbados. They're open almost everyday until 3p. Find them on Facebook and
