A brand-new Café Del Sol opened up in the middle of the Bay Shore Mall in George Town, all ready for the cruise ship tourists. “We’re excited to be back in George Town,” said Brad Bargman.  “We closed our other store on Fort Street just before Covid because our lease was ending.  This opportunity came around a few months ago, so we decided it’s the perfect spot for a grab & go location with some seating outside.  We serve all the Café del Sol favourites that people have enjoyed over the years.”

“Café Del Sol in Marquee Plaza opened about 21 years ago, and we are excited to continue our growth throughout the Cayman Islands,” Bargman said. “We hear our customers always say we serve Cayman’s favourite coffee.  We have a lot of affordable items. For example: BLT sandwiches, our famous grilled cheese sandwich, egg sandwiches, bagels, and croissants.   We have a large selection of great beverages, smoothies, frappes and iced beverages. We’re going to start serving coolers in the next few weeks.”

People love going to Café Del Sol to meet with their friends. I have enjoyed going there for the relaxing music playing in the background. It’s a nice, quiet atmosphere; you can come and go many years and you always seem to see a friendly face there. Lots of people go there to work and hold meetings and get things done and it makes a nice change from the office. I asked Brad about how they maintain such a convivial atmosphere. “I think a lot of that comes from our wonderful staff,” he said. “They make people feel comfortable like they are at home. The staff cares about the people and they care about the products they make and we always have nice homework or study, you can talk to your friends, the music is quiet enough where you can talk and hear people.”

“What’s interesting is Savannah has become a great place for locals to meet,” Brad continued. That is really true, and anyone who lives in Savannah knows how it has really become a focal point for the whole community, adding some heart and soul to Savannah. “The Marquee Plaza serves a lot more tourists compared to Savannah, but it’s also a good mix of locals and tourists, and even now that we’ve opened up today in BayShore Mall, we found a ton of locals here, even though there’s no ships in town. But I think it’s also going to be a big tourism hotspot. We offer seating for about 20 and there are a lot of benches around, too. You could take a sandwich and walk and enjoy the scenery as you’re eating your quick bite.”
