Mount Edge Guest House, EITS Cafe and Food Basket Farm – All in One Place!

Dining on the Edge at EITS Cafe

Thanks to Robyn Fox of Mount Edge Guest House / EITS Cafe / Food Basket Farm for this contribution on the exciting happenings up at Mount Edge!

Mount Edge Guest House, EITS Café and Food Basket Farm have a concept of providing a ‘Brand Jamaica’ cultural experience with accommodation, a ‘Farm to Table’ Dining Experience, and Fresh salads, herbs and produce, delivered to supermarkets, restaurants and residences.

Mount Edge Guest House / EITS Cafe / Food Basket Farm are located in the hills of Newcastle, Jamaica about 15 minutes from Strawberry Hill.

Mount Edge Guest House offers a ‘Brand Jamaica’ Experience with modest accommodation at affordable prices. Guests are looking for holidays where they can enjoy the natural beauty of Jamaica at a modest price.

Mount Edge has a total of eight guest rooms, strategically positioned, some of them enjoying the views of the mountains and the city below. The Guest House was started in the late’90s, and has seen a steady stream of backpacking foreign visitors (and occasionally, locals) in search of a not-so-traditional vacation.

Guests have come from all over the world but mostly from Europe.

Mount Edge has been rated #1 on the Trip Advisor BB’s and Inn’s in Kingston and remains in the top recommended Hostel/ Guest House in the Blue Mountains in the Lonely Planet.

EITS Café, acronym for “Europe In The Summer”, offers an exquisite dining experience. From ‘Farm to Table’, EITS Café incorporates salad greens, vegetables and herbs from the Food Basket Farm into delectable dishes, in a fusion of European and Jamaican cuisine.

EITS Café is different from other restaurants in Jamaica in that it offers Farm Fresh produce on the table within hours of it being harvested.

The European influence in the restaurant offers a great combination of foreign and local flavours, much appreciated by the European guests visiting Mount Edge Guest House and the local Jamaicans, looking for something different.

Food Basket Farm provides a wide range of farm produce, salads and herbs, some of them very difficult to find in Jamaica.

    If you are making plans for round world tickets,
    decide if it really is worth looking at given their
    cost. Although the subsequent manual will provide you step-by-step homemade vaporizer directions,
    we highly discourage anyone from trying this at home.

    used being a medication for a number of therapies at the same time.

    Hi Robyn

    Placed an order and have my cheque but not sure if you received it as I asked for a response and did not get one. Please call me if you can on 408-1955 as I do not know where or what time you deliver to the EMBASSY.

    Need to know if all is ok.

    Many thanks
    Kind regards
