We always make this our first refreshment stop on arrival in Bermuda. Excellent expresso and a great place to relax and enjoy the harbour view after that flight from Canada. The home made gingerbread cookies are also a real treat and led to two additional visits on recent vacation in Bermuda.

Not to my taste - but it seems very popular. I don't like the coffee at all but the place is nice to park in and watch people go by on Reid Street

Rock Island Coffee has the best iced coffee in Hamilton. They also make any coffee or tea-based drink you've come across. The atmosphere is very casual and with no frills, but if you're looking for a good coffee to go (or to stay!) and a delicious pastry if you need a snack, look no further. They offer a loyalty card...

We stopped in to Rock Island Coffee after a bit of shopping, bought a large cafe latte and cafe au lait. Coffee was excellent. This venue only accepts cash. The pastry selection is not huge, but looks fresh and tasty. Comfortable, homey seating area.

Cute coffee shop, pretty good Americano. Seemed to always be busy. If you are craving caffeine this is the place to go!

An original. Quirkey and wonderful. Full of locals, talking and drinking coffee. Much cooler than a Starbucks. Best coffee on the Island.

Simple relaxing coffee shop. Friendly staff, limited food options (muffins, loafs, cake or similar items). Reliable and consistent with an ambient artistic cafe decor.

I've never been disappointed when I go here. Staff are friendly and accommodating and there will always be someone there to chat with. The lounge is like something out of the 60's ....., so I feel really comfortable with the atmosphere. :) Keep up the good work. P.S. It's the Best Coffee in Bermuda and the Scones are really yummy...

I really enjoy the baristas, atmosphere, vibes, visitors, and workspace at Rock Island. My only complaint is that it's absolutely freezing inside wit AC on full blast. One barista wears sweats behind the bar the entire day and I've found myself doubling up sweatshirts just to sit comfortably in the work area. I guess they only have one AC and... More
