“Fabulous coffee break”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

What a great idea to stop off for coffee before we hit the hippo sighting. We had magnificent coffee, excellent milkshakes and superb sandwiches and wraps. Feeling peckish we all shared a few light meals as it was only a morning coffee break and we were delighted and amazed at the excellent venue.
Great food, lovely friendly service and a place I will definite return to.

“A real tea-room”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

A delightful oasis. Just loved the teapot shaped menus and the homemade cakes.
The service may not be the fastest but this is St Lucia and it is very pleasant and willing.

“Rather too cutesy for my taste”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

This restaurant has a pleasant ambience but is a bit too cutesy with heart shaped menus etc. The food was only average e.g. full breakfast which listed sausages came with the most minute sausages I have seen. However the price was quite reasonable but I would rather have paid a little more for better quality.

“A little gem in St Lucia! Who would have thought it?”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Thyme Square doesn't have a huge menu, but it is, after all a coffee shop and café, serving breakfasts, teas and lunches. But hat a lovely find! The food (especially breakfast) is very good, and very reasonably priced. The owner makes her presence felt, with some nice little touches and attention to detail. The service, whether by the owner of by the employees, was friendly and efficient. Heartily recommended.
