Café del Sol – everybody’s favourite hang-out

Who doesn’t love Café del Sol? This much-loved coffee shop has been around in one guise or another and in locations all across Grand Cayman since 2001. Nowadays its main coffee shop sits as it always has done at the Marquee Plaza just off the West Bay Road, while one of its sister cafés is located opposite the Countryside Shopping Village at Country Corner Plaza on Hirst Road in Savannah. Its newly opened Bayshore Mall location gives this part of central George Town a huge boost, creating another hub for people to gather and enjoy their great brews and delicious pastries and sandwiches.

Café del Sol has become something of a legend in the Cayman islands, a little independent coffee shop that gained so many fans through its quality coffee, lovely pastries and made-to-measure sandwiches that customers can design themselves. But, most of all, people come to Café del Sol because the servers are so nice and make a concerted effort to really get to know their customers. In fact, if you are a regular, you hardly need to look up from your newspaper or cell phone while queuing before your favourite morning cuppa is given to you ahead of you even asking. Now that is service.

Inside, the décor is a reflection of this coffee shop’s clear love for what it does, with colourful designs, Café del Sol sunshine motifs and coffee icons dotting the place. There’s even a whimsical swing and tree trunk table in the middle of the Savannah shop which really does bring the outdoors in and just adds to the charisma of the place.

Lattes are always top quality (even their decaf version, which can often be a let-down), as are all their hot and cold beverages. Their nitro cold brew – served with the milk of your choice, and that includes soy – deserves a special mention. This is for true coffee lovers as it is quite an intense caffeine hit, but it’s truly an impressive coffee and great value for money because you get a pure, smooth and frothy coffee without the cheapskate ice. Iced coffees are another great buy because of their variety and intense hit of flavour. Choose from an iced latte, caramel macchiato, Mexican spiced latte, Chai and this writer’s favourite – mocha, among others.

Breakfast egg and bacon baps, cute cupcakes, muffins, pastries and more are all served fresh and delicious, while sandwiches can be created to taste by filling out a little request slip, such a great idea. These are the little touches that make Café del Sol a national favourite.
