Review of Barbadoes by KirstyB on Tue, 30 Oct 2007, updated Tue, 30 Oct 2007:

If you can't quite get to the Caribbean to soak up the relaxed atmosphere, then this is the next best thing. Barbadoes is the newest local cafe in our 'hood (at the time of writing). Look for the blue and gold crocheted covers on the retro chairs at the table and the long and low-slung couch, (perfect for catching some early morning rays) outside. I can honestly say that Havana is definately "Coffee U Feel!!" A triple shot flat white works for me (and within me!!). Absolutely no complaints there. Inside the bountiful cabinet are all sorts of vegetarian and vegan friendly delicacies. The carrot cake is absolutely THE BEST carrot cake I have had the pleasure of eating for ages, seriously ORGASMIC, I loved it so much I just HAD to buy another piece this afternoon, because I enjoyed the one I had this morning so much! The takeaway containers are made from sugar cane waste product and will break down in your compost bin, so this establishment walks lightly on the earth too. Nice work!
