Our trips to Cafe Carizma

Cafe Carizma is right in the middle of Chattel Village in Hometown. We have been there numerous times, probably once every time we visit the island. They always offer a warm welcome and great food.

It is just 5 minutes walk from Villa Sunnyside and a 3 minute stroll from Sunset Crest Beach Club. Cafe Carizma’s central location makes it an ideal stop off on route to the Beach Club. Cafe Carizma has a big wooden bar in the middle with covered seating, surrounded by open-air dining areas and pretty Chattel houses.

It’s a nice spot, you get chickens roaming around freely, occasionally accompanied by baby chicks. It’s a laid-back atmosphere and a sense of rustic charm. Also, the friendly and welcoming staff keep us coming back.

But the main draw for us is the breakfasts, which never disappoint. We like the combo of a hearty fry-up and a refreshing smoothie! The portions are good as is the quality of the food.

Fry up at Cafe Carizma

In addition to its regular menu, Cafe Carizma also hosts special events throughout the week. From Taco Tuesday with live music to Quiz Evening on Thursdays, there’s always something fun happening at Cafe Carizma. Be sure to book your spot in advance to secure a table for these popular events – you can either walk in and reserve a table or call the restaurant directly on +1 (246) 432-7198.

Cafe Carizma’s sister cafe, Life is Sweet, is just around the corner, offering a selection of sweet treats, from crepes and rolled ice cream to homemade waffle cones and freak shakes.

I love to travel with my family. Over the years, we’ve found ourselves coming back to the magic of Sunset Crest. So much so, that we finally decided to take the plunge and buy Villa Sunnyside in 2022!
