Valerie Grant, Proprietor of the Cafe and Bar, who has been residing in Guyana for a few years noted there was a need for good Caribbean food, hence the establishment of the cafe. However, she soon realised patrons were requesting wine with their meals.
“I like a good glass of wine and I also like to visit vineyards”, she remarked.
Grant said that after much discussion with some of her colleagues, they decided that the Wine Bar would be a “fantastic” addition to the business.
The Island Style Cafe and Bar will offer a variety of cuisines on different days of the week. The business operates under the mandate of “Taking your taste buds on a journey around the Caribbean”.
