The little Caribbean restaurant just West of Gage (beside The Capitol Bar) is all about exactly what it implies: the good ‘Vibez’ around the restaurant experience.
Walking into the cozy space just off King Street, you will notice the spirit of the mother-daughter owned restaurant from the blackboard chalk-drawn walls to the fiery food flavours and lively customers. Vibez has become a staple in their neighbourhood.
You may have read a little about the restaurant and owners here, when they shared about their favourite restaurant in the city.
Just as they supported other businesses, Owners Yvette and Kristan are finding the support has come full circle and the community is embracing them with open arms.
Yvette and Kristan have said business so far has been great. “The first few months have been a series of events, but I wouldn’t change anything that has happened because we have learnt and grown from it,” Kristan says. “It’s been amazing, honestly we couldn’t have chosen a better location. The community here has shown us so much love and support. I have no complaints.”
On their Southern/Caribbean menu are popular items like: their Curry Goat, Chicken and Waffles, Fried Chicken, Jerk Chicken, Pumpkin Roti, Doubles, and so much more.
Though when going to try these dishes at their restaurant, you may have to be a bit flexible. If you aren’t there early they may sell out of certain dishes. Looking for something specific? Call ahead to confirm they have it!
The size of the dishes for the cost is extremely reasonable, so we can see how they have become such a popular place in the neighbourhood.
A must on all their dishes is their in house-made hot sauce. With a base of scotch bonnet, Jamaican peppers, you can believe it’s extremely spicy…so if you are sensitive to spice, beware, but the amazing and different flavours in this sauce are second to none.
In addition to all their mains and tasty entrees, they also offer baked goods and desserts that they make in house. Expect everything from Black Forest Cake and Jamaican Sweet Potato Pudding to Rice Krispie Squares or Salted Caramel Cupcakes…every day is something new!
