Skullduggery Cafe, Falmouth Harbour, Antigua
Let’s face it, sometimes you just want a good old mug of coffee. Skullduggery Cafe hit the spot! Plenty of simple, reasonably priced food options to go with it and stunning views across Falmouth Harbour…
Skullduggery Cafe is less than 10 minutes walk from the highly recommended boutique hotel, Admiral’s Inn, Nelson’s Dockyard. It is located on a fabulous marina overlooking Falmouth Harbour with shops, supermarket and another eatery. I visited here a couple of times because it was such a lovely location. The cafe was quite busy on both occasions, even though it was low season.
Stools are positioned up at the bar if you want to sit inside. The atmosphere is good with modern pop music playing. Alternatively, you can find a shady or sunny spot, in front of the cafe to enjoy your food or drink. Outside, the tables overlook the water so it is great if you are on your own. It is the perfect spot to relax with a good book, be alone with your thoughts at the start of the day or just sit and watch the pelicans swooping for fish.
The service could be better. It was hit or miss. Sometimes it was super friendly and other times, not. But since I took my food and drink outside, that didn’t really matter too much to me. On one occasion, my order was completely forgotten! The waitress was very apologetic though.
The Menu – prices from EC$10
- Angus beef burger with cheese, lettuce, bacon, tomato and onion
- Selection of toasties
- Fried eggs on toast
- 2 fried eggs and bacon on ciabatta
- Toast with butter and marmalade
The tuna melt toastie I ordered was delicious. The filling was very creamy. This was complemented by chunks of spring onion and small pieces of sweet tomato.
Would I Return?
I would definitely come back on a future visit to Antigua. Although the service could have been better, it was great for solo dining because..
- Chilled and relaxed place to sit overlooking the water
- Seating at the bar area if you want a break from the sun
- Good food
- Good coffee – in a mug!
- Great place to walk to
