While browsing the chattel house complex, we stopped for lunch here. Great flying fish sandwiches and rum punches. The owner/manager(?) checked on us and all was pleasant indeed. Great value and great food.

Disappointing. The prices are very high for sandwiches and salads. Stay away from the House Salad; it's one of the worst I have ever had. Nice location and the staff are friendly but I suggest that you spend your money somewhere else.More

There is a menu online but this does not allow my to post links. Google Cafe Bar Carizma and click on their entry on Dining with us. There are three menus there.
