Overview

Island Mix is the home to over 60 St Lucian artisans and the only shop of its kind, featuring a collection of art, clothing, jewelry, pottery, food and snacks, carvings, home decor and much more. Most times you will find a visiting artisan or a class or two on our patio. We are situated in the heart of Rodney Bay along the loop road. Our view of the marina and bay from the patio just adds to the ambiance where we serve tea, coffee and a limited snack menu all made locally. New to our cafe is a daily lunch of curried chicken, lamb, beef or vegetarian A water front casual dining experience in Thursdays for fish and chips, yes with malt vinegar but no mushy peas. High tea is also an option but we ask for a booking 48hrs in advance. in addition, We have now added a room for visitors on airbnb.
