Flamboyan Resort proudly promotes Northside Grind as a valued member of its on-premise hospitality team.
When COVID-19 came on the scene, the quaint Caribbean coffee shop stepped up to the plate with seamless “take-out only” service. Proprietors Trish and Tom Dahl skillfully transitioned to customized curbside delivery on everything from morning coffee to multiple picnic orders — and everything in between.
Today, although entry into the shop remains limited to employees only, customers are invited to step beyond the garden gate, sit down and relax outdoors — social distance style. If the area is in use, guests may take food and beverages to the hotel’s poolside area for additional seating.
Said Tom, “We have six terrific staff members and appreciate the great service they give to our customers.”
Trish and Tom have regularly expanded the daily menu of breakfast and lunch specialties. Freshly made muffins are a popular example. So, too, are frozen popsicles made with fresh fruit.
Clearly, the unique enterprise is a “labor of love” for the couple.
Said Trish, “We are extremely grateful for all the love and support from the community during this hard time.” With a thoughtful smile, she added, “We also appreciate the visitors that have included us in their stay on island… and every single person that has supported our business during COVID-19.”
Married on February 13, 2016, Trish and Tom celebrate their wedding anniversary each February on ‘Valentine’s Eve.’ If you have a special event to celebrate this month — or simply want to enjoy a bottle of red or white wine in paradise — Northside Grind carries a limited selection of red and white favorites.
