The Gap Café

The Gap Cafe, The Blue Mountains  

The Gap Café - The Blue Mountains
Tel: (1 876) 997-3032

Situated just outside the entrance to Holywell Recreation Park, the Gap Café is the perfect place to stop for fine food and coffee before (or after) hiking around the park. Many diners make the 21 mile trip from Kingston just to eat at the café.

The rustic café serves mainly traditional Jamaican fare such as curried goat and escoveitched fish. The café also serves home made pastries. However, no trip to the Gap Café would be complete without enjoying a cup of Blue Mountain Coffee. The Gap Café is said to serve the best cup of coffee in the world, with fresh beans taken from the surrounding plantations and brewed to order.

The Gap Café is also famous for its stunning views and wildlife. The area is home to many hummingbirds. The birds fly around the many feeding stations hanging outside the café's windows so diners can view these wonderful creatures through the large open windows. The café also has panoramic views of the misty Blue Mountains, on a rare clear day it is also possible to see as far as Kingston and Port Royal.

The Gap Café was built in the 1930s and it is said that Ian Flemming wrote Dr. No here. In December 2000 a cottage next to the café was open for bed and breakfast, offering a tranquil get-away-from-it-all experience in the mountains.
