What a find. Wish we had stopped in sooner. Fresh grilled fish with rice and veg. Roasted turkey with mashed potatoes and veg. Combined only $16. Huge portions. Fish was tasty and fresh. Turkey was awesome. Don't let the appearance of the outside detract you. While I was waiting there at least a dozen people come and go picking up... More

We went for lunch to eat in and were the only ones there. A brisk take out trade however. Lee's sister was taking orders/waitressing. She is a lovely lady. They had quite a variety to choose from so we asked her what she would get. "The baked chicken". She was right. Wonderful flavor, perfectly cooked and the Mac n cheese... More

Stopped by late afternoon, it was off season so they didn't have much left for the day. Greeted like family, said we only have Mac and cheese, baked chicken. We said yes, okay. Was served with love and smiles. Made us feel special and very cheap. Would try it, the food was good, service awesome! Love the people of Eleuthra.

Arrived between lunch and dinner, but she graciously fixed up some wings and home-cut fries! Even the kids found them awesome without their usually necessary dipping sauces. Lee was like family within minutes with great conversation and hospitality! Hope we Missourians return that to her each time she visits.

We stopped in to Lee's and got some lunch to go. The Curry chicken was very tasty. We understand that when most places are closed, Lee's Cafe is usually open, which is nice to know!

We stopped at Lee's Cafe while on road to visit the south part of the island. We had a good meal for a very competitive price. The staff is friendly and will make you feel the guest of onor. Simple, clean and definitely original with Bahamian flavor.

Lee serves some of the best island food. The grouper fingers were excellent and served with homemade tartar sauce, yummy.

This food has a great taste. I had white rice, curry chicken, mixed vegetables, and macacroni and cheese with a Goombay Punch. Most of the flavor comes from the fat, for the curry chicken, so if you are watching calories, beware. Also, it's very near a cemetery, but hopefully that doesn't freak you out. The full menu is never available,... More

We stopped in at Lee's Cafe and had grouper fingers, rice and peas and a green salad. All were wonderful. They have a daily specials and the staff are super friendly. The grouper was the best fried fish I have ever tasted and coming from the South that is saying something!!

We missed it on our travels the first couple of days, but then we stopped every day for lunch.
