Jersey’s Cabin Cafe

The Cabin Cafe was a place we found towards the end of our week on Jersey but we wound up going back twice because it was really good. The garnish was surprising, the dogs that hung out with their owners were entertaining and the beach […]

Jersey’s Gunsite Cafe

Jersey’s Gunsite Cafe

One of the great but unexpected places we ate on St Lawrence Beach on Jersey was the Gunsite Cafe. This was the first place we found to eat on the island. We were starving and really didn’t know what to expect. It’s not a trendy […]
