The eatery is the American dream come true for husband-and-wife team Kwane Haywood and Akiai Worthington in Montco.

Haywood’s family is from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, so the meals are inspired by his mother and grandmother.

He also spent some time traveling the islands as a professional soccer player.

The chef puts a twist on nearly all of the meals he prepares and makes almost everything from scratch.

The restaurant offers a different homemade soup each day along with Caribbean drinks, such as Mango Passion and Hibiscus Punch.

Additionally, the desserts will not leave anybody wanting, especially the banana chocolate bread pudding made with homemade caramel.

And as a bonus, Haywood has started bottling his homemade sauce with the goal of having it on shelves of Wegmans by the end of the year.
