As much as I want to experience ‘real Jamaica(s)’ while I am here, discovering lunch in the quiet, cool, serene Swiss Consulate General was a soothing relief. No, I wasn’t a special guest – I just discovered their cafe and “Swiss Store” on my hunt for real (not instant!) coffee.
Rolex, Victorinox, Citizen – big name Swiss-ness, though sadly they were missing Toblerone. They did have Haagen Dazs, but that seemed wrong after my lovely chicken salad.
Oddly, their website only mentions that they sell watches and jewelry – no mention of other goods or of the café. They also have photographs on display and for sale, and the only hot morning coffee I’ve found downtown.
