Suga’s Comments: 

Trotters Cafe is located at Park Place also known as the Golf Academy by The Liguanea Club, adjacent to the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel.

As you enter you are greeted by brightly coloured umbrellas similar to the umbrellas of Calle Angosto in Cartagena, Colombia. Definitely a décor win and a great marketing strategy for the current era that maximizes on Photo ops for Instagram and other social media platforms.

Seating is in open air by wooden tables with the most adorable Cacti centre pieces.

The Staff is extremely courteous and attentive.

I loved that their menu is posted on their Instagram page, so I knew what I was going to order before I got there and I didn’t have to handle the menu.

They serve Coffee Beverages, Smoothies, Traditional Eggs, Pancakes, Waffles, Omelettes, Bagel Sandwiches, Croissants, Paninis, Crepes, Wraps, Pastries and more.

They have options for Lunch too such as Soup, Salad, their Signature Burger and Pizza.

Trotter Passport with a serving of Eggs, Bacon and Pancakes with homemade Blueberry topping ($1050JMD +tx & 10% gratuity).

I had the Trotter Passport with a serving of Eggs, Bacon and Pancakes with homemade Blueberry topping ($1050JMD +tx & 10% gratuity).

Smoked Salmon Omelette ($950JMD +tx & 10% gratuity).

My husband, Randy had the Smoked Salmon Omelette ($950JMD +tx & 10% gratuity).

Presentation was excellent with a more than satisfactory serving size and most importantly, Breakfast tasted great! Eggs my way, over easy and fluffy pancakes. The service could have been a little quicker with us alone there, but I saw and appreciated that everything was hot and freshly made.

Randy had 100% Blue Mountain Coffee ($400JMD) and I enjoyed my French Vanilla Frappe ($600JMD).

Their Dessert counter is also quite eye-catching. I was full, Randy had their Bailey’s Cheesecake that sas decent.

We were offered a complimentary glass of wine. It was 10am but Why not?! They have other alcoholic options too.

SUGA TASTER, KIMBERLY NESBETH BATTLES COVID CRAVINGS AND GOES PLANT-BASED!

Suga Taster, Kimberly Nesbeth

Do you remember that Kimberly’s favourite dish is Smoked Pork Chops?! Let’s see how she enjoyed a plant-based meal from The Plantry!

Suga Taster, Kimmy’s Breakdown!

During Love in the Time of Corona, many of us bought snacks we know we should stay away from, then binge ate them. Me? GUILTY!

After one week of this I was craving something healthy, but different. THE PLANTRY had been popping up on my Instagram and I took this opportunity to give them a try.

Their plant-based food options change weekly. Soups, salads, main dishes and sweet treats. You order and pay online, which helps significantly with reducing human interaction, and the food can be delivered or you can pick it up.

I ordered on Instagram, received an email with the invoice and made payment via squareup.com.

The menu was titled, ‘An Ode to Mexico’ the day that I ordered.

For JMD $1400, I got a small Split Pea Soup and Prickly Salad, a Nopales (type of cactus) Burrito, Elote (Mexican Grilled Corn) and Non-Dairy Mango Ice cream. A starter, main course and dessert for $1,400! Value for money already.

I decided to pick up the order myself because I needed a little drive out after watching too much Corona news. I was promised it would be ready at noon. I got there at 1pm and it still wasn’t ready. For damage control she made me a small Jerked Jackfruit plus Bean Wrap with fresh Mango Chutney. It was so tasty that I actually stopped half way so I could give the other half to my boyfriend. All of a sudden, instead of anxiously waiting I was patiently and excitedly anticipating receiving my order.

At 2pm I was delving into my meal, so apologies, but no pics. The Soup, Salad, Elote and Burrito were DIVINE! Tasty, flavourful and filling!
So good I would definitely order again, but do delivery instead and plan for the delay.

What happened to the Ice-cream? The Ice-cream was not ready until two days later. Smooth and refreshing; as sweet as the perfect mango.

If you’re in office and still tied to a restricted Lunch time, this may not be for you. If you’re working from home, THE PLANTRY is definitely worth your time. Just mentally prepare for a possibly long wait.

Suga’s got more for you to add to your Post Covid-19 Bucket List. I’m throwing it back to a brunch spread that I thoroughly enjoyed at Shooters Waterfront last October. The live music was entertaining too.
Shooters was offering delivery and takeaway/curbside pick ups, but are now closed and look forward to reopening when the COVID-19 curve flattens.
Here are a few teasers until they reopen!
