Uchuma Cafe & Jerk Center

Uchuma Cafe opened its doors on December 25, 2015 with an aim to serve visitors and locals through a coffee shop set in an authentic 18th century Georgian era building in Falmouth, Jamaica.

Since then, proprietor Cassandra Chin has seen the need to add a jerk center (a restaurant that sells jerked meats, including jerked chicken and jerked pork). The restaurant has blossomed into a favorite spot for locals and visitors, thanks to the popularity of in-house chef, Dave Wilkey.

First, let’s look at the coffee shop.

Uchuma Cafe

Set on the first floor of Pinto’s House at 1 Trelawny Street, the Uchuma Cafe is set in one of Falmouth’s oldest buildings still in use. The building has recently been refurbished and is currently owned by David Pinto, a local potter from Good Hope. His work can be seen and bought at Jamaica Clay as well as at Uchuma Cafe. All the cups and plates in the cafe were made by David Pinto.

In terms of beverage, the coffee shop sells coffee espresso, cappuccino and assorted teas.

For accompaniment, Uchuma also sells panini sandwiches, with jerked or regular chicken as well as other meats. Added to that are choice cheeses and vegetables.

Customers may dine inside or outside with jazz providing background music.

Uchuma Jerk Center

The Uchuma Jerk Center has in a short time sky rocketed to popularity among locals. Chef Dave Wilkey daily serves up local favorites: jerked chicken, jerked pork escoveiched fish, steamed fish, stewed beef, curried goat (mutton) and cow foot.

The Bar

Adjacent to the Jerk Center is a bar, where the mixologist can whip up your desired drink.

The Jerk Center is one of the stops on the Falmouth Walking Tour. The favorite among visitors is jerk chicken tasting as well as ice cold Red Stripe beer from the bar.

Free WiFi

Uchuma provides Free WiFi for its visitors.

Karaoke

Uchuma Cafe also hosts Karaoke nights every 2 weeks.

Excellent coffee & panini sandwich in a comfortable, ancient setting.
5.0

I was served a freshly brewed serving of delicious coffee, directly from the coffee beans. A panini jerked chicken sandwich with cheese and veggies topped it off. The location brought me back to the 18th century, to the old slavery days; the perfect ambiance for my coffee and sandwich.

All in all a great, relaxing location and delicious coffee and sandwich.
