FOOD: The GAP Cafe, Blue Mountains

Several months ago, on a whim, a friend of mine and another friend of his decided to bust out into the mountains. The Blue Mountains, Jamaica to be exact. We made a few stops chittering, chattering and taking the view in. Fresh air for days!


On the way, we stopped at a lovely cafe for lunch and let me tell you, the food and experience are not things my I will soon forget. They have the amenties for both an indoor and an outdoor dining experience, but who could pass up that breeze and view?

The scenery is entirely too beautiful and refreshing, lush green landscape d in the middle of the mountains and nature visited us in the form of the National Bird of Jamaica, the humming bird.

Quiet, peaceful time and space outside of the hustle and bustle of nearby city, Kingston.

Oxtail, yellow rice and tossed salad

Finally, the meal. As a born Jamaican, a favorite is Oxtail. The food was amazing. It just doesn’t get any better than this. I’ll definitely be going back. You don’t just have food like that once!
Before we left, we viewed the historical secrets the building had to offer and were invited to sign the guest book.

    This place is on my list, though I admit I couldn’t remember how I found about it & couldn’t find much info online. Tried calling to no avail 1 day while I was in the mountains so decided to save it for another day when more time was available. Great to get a quick review on it.
