Cafe' Skans: "AMAZING Conch Fritters!!" Café Skans Tip by Cy_Fi

Café Skans, Nassau: 5 reviews and 0 photos

Cafe Skans is a gem, the food was great and the waitresses are beautiful and hospitable. My husband had the Conch Fritters and they were delicious, I was a bit scared of the idea of Conch so I ordered the Bahamian Fried Chicken with the rice and it was very good. I felt like a local eating there, like I knew something that everyone else didn't. Now I'm not positive about this but my mom swears that she also ate there when she was in Nassau about 25+ years ago... she just remembered that the conch chowder was out of this world... it must have been to remember it that long ago.
Something that I thought was neat was the wall behind the cash register was covered in foreign currency signed by the people that hung it up. The waitresses were nice enough to give us our change in Bahamian money which is only a .02 difference in the exchange for U.S. dollars. They use both currency in their everyday life as if they were the same thing... interesting really!
