“Amazaing food at a very modest price!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

The Cartwheel is locally owned and operate by folks who know what they're doing. Just a few feet from the Cruis Ship dock on a main street, you enter off the main street to a wonderful oasis of good food, great service and a happy, fun experience. Hands on management, high value and quality driven. Tehy manage to serve a great meal and do it without the "island mentality" the afflicts a lot of other places.

“The Trendy Cafe”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The Cartwheel Cafe – Trendy Eating Joint

The Cartwheel Cafe on the bay front in Roseau Dominica seems to be the meeting place for the local trendys’ and those from the cruise ships that would occasionally eat in local food shops. This local eatery has a big advantage in its location facing the Caribbean Sea and near the cruise ship birth.
For this, Cartwheel occupies a prime spot in Roseau. Small as it is, it is an appealing place to eat. What it lacks in size it makes up for the quickness of service and its pleasant staff that are quite efficient in their turnaround in orders and keep the place very clean. The Cartwheel is really a sandwich bar where a small range of sandwich is available and a cold beer or local juice is available and would not do too much harm to your wallet or purse.

My favourite is the saltfish or smoke herring sandwich with their garden salad and if you want to enjoy these lovely eateries, get there before 14.00 from Monday to Saturday, although you can make sure and partake in their breakfast servings.

I’d recommend this lovely joint for the overseas visitor.

“Quick, inexpensive”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

like a to-go place with some seating. You really need a good book about Carribean cusine before you order. Try Roti which is bread stuffed with potatoes and meat.

“Lovely breakfast”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Bacon, eggs, toast and coffee. Nice atmosphere and within very easy access of the centre of town. The cheesecake looked great too, but I was too full from the breakfast. They also serve a Caribbean style breakfast too with fish.
