The Turks and Caicos is also lucky to have TCI Coffee Roasters, which imports organic green Arabica beans from around the world and roasts them on Providenciales. Coffee blends are offered as whole beans or ground.
On the Leeward side of the island, a great place for a light snack and coffee is The Market at Blue Haven Resort. This site offers groceries, sandwiches, baked goods and pizza.
There are several bakeries on Providenciales, and they offer a wide selection of fresh breads, pastries, cakes and cookies.
Caicos Bakery is found in the small Caicos Café Plaza. This French bakery serves a wide selection of baked goods that are made fresh every morning, as well as perfectly-brewed cups of coffee made from local TCI Coffee Roasters beans. Choose from bread, croissants, sandwiches, small pizzas, and desserts.
There are several ice cream shops on Providenciales that feature locally made ice cream, sorbet and gelato. In Grace Bay, there’s a great choice in almost every plaza.
Turk Berry at the Saltmills Plaza is a very popular place for those with a sweet tooth and offers frozen yogurt in several proprietary blends along with a great selection of toppings.
The Patty Place, a Jamaican-inspired confectionery that has two locations, sells Devon House ice cream of Kingston, Jamaica fame and locally made ice cream cones and patty pastries, which are a flat pastry with a flaky pie-like crust that may be filled either with savory meat, or sweet fillings.
In Turtle Cove, Jammin’ Gelato serves a wide selection of gluten and egg free gelato in fruit and regional dessert flavors. The proprietor often makes the trek with an ice cream cart up to the Bight Reef area, so you can enjoy this treat on the beach as well.
Candy and Sweets
The Grace Bay ice cream parlors offer the best selection of candies on Providenciales.
The Turks and Caicos traditionally doesn’t have a wide repertoire of desserts, yet there are a few authentic and local recipes. Caramel made with the excellent Salt Cay salt, Bambarra Rum Cake, and semi-baked sweet fruit cake are some of the sweet flavors that have a close connection to our islands.
