Daybreak in St. Lucia finds the Bayside Café bustling with many morning rituals. The promise of fresh, hot coffee and croissants draws owners and crews down the gangplanks of their yachts into Marina Village. Resort guests relax on the waterfront deck and patio, enjoying their breakfasts and papers under shady umbrellas. Menu selections range from egg dishes, French toast, pancakes and waffles to fresh fruit and yogurts topped with homemade granola crunch and crisp coconut shards. Island locals drop in to savor traditional St. Lucian breakfast favorites like salt fish, plantains and cocoa tea.
As the day progresses the Bayside Café hums with the pleasant energy of a European sidewalk bistro. Browsers perusing the nearby shops break for lunch or linger over late afternoon cocktails. The Grab and Go counter does a brisk trade, offering freshly prepared snacks, sandwiches, drinks and homemade ice creams to hikers, sightseers and departing yachters.
Each evening the Bayside Café transforms into a vibrant meeting place with a colorful assortment of patrons contributing to the friendly, pub-style spirit. Boat crews and sports fans gather for games on the flatscreens and comfort food favorites like chicken wings, pizzas and burgers. At the tiki bar, a DJ or live Caribbean band entertains vacationers sipping frozen cocktails while pondering the yachts gliding through the Marina.
