Antigua-born Gladys Isles is a warm, gracious woman whose presence makes a visit here all the more special. Gladys' Café is housed in a circa-1700 pump house with a stonework courtyard that has a well in the middle (one of only three on the island). The excellent breakfast here is the best value in town. Lunch offerings feature various sandwiches, salads, and fresh seafood, including a mouthwatering swordfish and dumplings. Along with local lobster, shrimp, and fish dishes, the house specialty is the hot chicken salad, made with pieces of sautéed breast with red-wine vinegar, pine nuts, and dill, all nestled on a bed of lettuce.
