Update 2016: Geraud's has moved. More on Geraud's current location here.
One of the best French cafes on the island with a large variety of baked goods and tasty lunch and breakfast options.
More on Geraud's, below...
Anguilla is home to many bakeries, cafés and sandwich shops.
They all have their specialties.
Fat Cat for potato salad and pasta salad.
Veya Café for paninis.
Le Bon Pain for croissants and baguettes.
One of the best of Anguilla sandwiches, island wide, are found...
Geraud was born in France and started a career in pastry early. He has traveled around the world, working for five-star restaurants and hotels. He teaches the art he has mastered, too. In 2004 Geraud came to Anguilla, working as the Executive Pastry Chef at Koal Keel.
Now, he has a thriving business of his own.
For breakfast Geraud serves a variety of pastries: chocolate croissants, almond croissants, turnovers, danishes, bagels, and so on. There are daily breakfast specials, too! From a full English breakfast to a croissant and a café au lait... Breakfast at Geraud's cannot be missed.
Geraud also serves a delightful lunch. His menu is full of fresh salads, soups, and specials that vary from lasagna to Asian chicken salad. Over time I have learnt that everything at Geraud's is up to the standards of the rich and famous he has catered to in the past.
From the lavish desserts, to the flaky croissants, to the ever changing daily specials, my never changing, permanent favorite?
The sandwiches are served on baguette.
Unlike most baguette, Geraud's is softer and wider. Ideal sandwich bread!
They are not hard to eat, like many French bread sandwiches I have devoured (with slight difficulty!) in the past.
The tomato and lettuce are fresh.
Your choice of ham, turkey or tuna. And, you cannot forget the cheese and mayonnaise!
Bring it home, or have a pleasant afternoon meal chez Geraud's, in his roomy, comfortable evironment.
Geraud makes some of the best of Anguilla sandwiches!
Now that I have tried it, I never veer from my tuna sandwich. I won't even sample another kind of sandwich. Sooner or later I am going to have to start trying Geraud's other tasty treats again.
What can I say? I'm smitten for his tuna sandwiches!
Do you have a favorite sandwich shop on Anguilla?
