Need a Caribbean escape but don’t have time for a vacation? Drive over to Chef Rob’s Caribbean Cafe and take a break from the high-intensity city life. Chef Rob’s keeps reggae music streaming and rum drinks on deck to provide some beachy contrast to your day. The food Chef Rob serves is authentic and covers all the Caribbean- cuisine basics: from Jerk Chicken to Oxtail, Curry Goat to Ackee & Saltfish. This restaurant has been serving the Sandy Springs community since 2006 and has developed quite a following for this flavorful, fresh and funky menu.

The cocktails on Chef Rob’s menu are equally as diverse and tropical as the food! One of the drink specials, the “Ultimate Bob Marley” is one of the most colorful and potent choices to order. This drink is made with Malibu Coconut rum, banana liqueur, pineapple and orange juice, Don Q 151, Myer’s dark rum, blue curacao, melon liqueur and grenadine.

Another can’t miss classic is a Jerk Chicken plate with fried plantains and rice & peas. Chef Rob adds so much spice and depth of flavor to these simple ingredients. Learn more about this dish and drink combination with Chef Rob and Skye when you click here.
