“This is exactly what Princes Town needed,” said a VIAAA customer on its Facebook page.
Ands it’s true, VIAAA is a great addition helping fill a need in Princes Town and Trinidad.
Doubling as a bakery and fast casual restaurant, the ambiance and comfortable seating will make you want to linger through breakfast, lunch and dinner. The genius of VIAAA is all the options, there’s truly something for everyone (and everything is made from scratch).
As you enter the restaurant you immediately see the bakery section, which offers hops, coconut bakes, currant rolls, sweetbreads, danishes, quiches, croissants, tarts, muffins and other goodies. Wheeled out in a bakery rack by smiling employees, the VIAAA hops arrival is a happy occasion complete with the aroma of freshly baked bread and customers queuing up for their hops.
Local and American-style breakfast is served up from 7am to 10:30am daily while lunch service starts at 11am. The centerpiece of VIAAA’s lunch service is a large “buffet” station with nearly 50 items including pelau, macaroni pie, jerk chicken, callaloo, tandoori chicken, biryani rice, roti and curry chicken.
Stations offering burgers (chicken, beef, fish and veggie burgers), fried foods, pasta dishes, customizable salads, sandwiches and pizza round out the lunch/dinner menu with most of the options here being made upon order.
The ice cream bar has soft serve ice cream and regular housemade ice cream with flavors like cherry coconut, barbadine, “passion lash,” and cookies & cream. Other dessert options include cookies, cupcakes like the Oreo Cupcake, and cakes (try the Nutella Chocolate Cake!).
On the day we visited as guests of the restaurant, we enjoyed a sweet & sour tofu and veggie entree, fried chicken with fries, a BBQ Chicken Sandwich and ice cream. Happily stuffed but committed to sampling baked goodies, we took home mini-quiches and fresh hops, which were devoured by our house guests the next day. See all our VIAAA pictures here.
