This family-run cafe is the perfect midday hideaway for when we’ve finally had enough of our inbox. They serve sandwiches, smoothies, and baked goods, and, in a nod to the name (a beach in Montego Bay), you’ll find some Jamaican flavor too. The menu changes all the time, but their best stuff is always on deck: the jerk chicken on sourdough, topped with a tangy chimichurri, and Jamaican iced coffees made with condensed coconut milk. They’re open from 8am-4pm on weekdays, in a cavernous space that’s half kitchen and half tables-for-two. Just don’t bring your laptop with you—there’s no wi-fi or outlets. Instead, sip your espresso while you chat with the chef making your sandwich, and marvel at the expertly organized kitchen behind her.
