Dawne opened the doors of her Soleil Kafe in September 2019 having felt for some time that there were not enough pretty and vibrant places where you could sit and enjoy a good home cooked meal on the island of Antigua. Somewhere you could come for lunch and end up spending a couple of hours, island style.
Palm trees rustling in the breeze; Zouk music drifting through the open door and windows; mouthwatering aromas teasing your tastebuds and a gentle riot of fresh Caribbean colours merging with natural driftwood and wattle – this is Dawne’s Soleil Kafe set in the heart of Bay Gardens in Hodges Bay. A quintessential Caribbean gem that is bursting with delicious food and excellent service, with comfortable seating available both inside and out.
The team at Dawne’s Soleil Kafe are all from the islands and the Chef uses mainly fresh locally sourced ingredients to create an amazing island and creole infused menu that changes daily. However, one or two dishes are always available and due to popular demand you will always find Seafood Medley and Chicken Breast stuffed with Spinach and Plantain together with a Coconut Curry Sauce on the side!
To give you an idea of the Starters:
Shrimp & Avocado Salad with a Passion Citrus Dressing
Island Quinoa Salad
Saltfish Ackra with Spicy Creole Sauce
And the mains:
Coconut Curried Goat
Grilled Lobster with Garlic Jus
Tuna Fillet with Mango Salsa
Mouthwatering desserts such as Homemade Bread & Butter Pudding with Chocolate & Coconut with a Rum Sauce or Tropical Cheesecake make sure you leave well satisfied
Dawne has a well-stocked bar in the intimate inside setting with assorted rums; scotch; gins; vodka and liqueurs including locally distilled award winning rums and gins together with Dawne’s fresh local Island fusion juice made from a selection of whatever fruits are available at the market, such as starfruit; golden apple; soursop; carrots and gingers but the base always made from local lemon grass. For the hot drink lovers, there is always a Cappuccino, Espresso; Americano or Latte along with Dawne’s Tea Pot, a secret blend of fresh local fruits & herbs.
