If you want a tasty treat, this place is worth stopping by a few times during the day. The saltfish pate’ is incredible, throw in an ice cold Ting and it’s one of the best things the island has to offer!!

Had some nice beef and saltfish pates. On our second visit the had been sitting around too long, so maybe try to scope out if they are fresh before ordering.

We drove past this little stand all week & finally stopped on our last day. We couldn't decide which was Pate (patty) was better-- the chicken or beef. Kids wanted to go back for seconds, but we had to catch the ferry.
