Caribbean café

In 1968, Dr. Tony Martin, a PHD in Nutrition and born in British Guyana, immigrated to the United States, bringing with him secret recipes handed down to him through generations of his family. He moved to Charlotte, NC in 1986 and opened a small Cafe with a menu straight from the heart of the Caribbean. It is named for his mother, Ann, and himself, Tony.

Anntony's Caribbean café has won many awards, received favorable reviews and accolades for it's innovative style and tasty Island cuisine. Rotisserie chicken marinated and seasoned for an authentic Caribbean flair has made the restaurant famous. This flavorful fare caused such a stir; Dr. Martin had to develop his unique and flavorful sauces for retail sale.

These sauces are so unique and versatile they can be used for marinating, dipping, topping, in beverages or just boasting to your guests that you've discovered a new secret recipe. Demand has continued to the point that Caribe Food Development was created. And a factory was built. The company now bottles these flavorful sauces for retail and the restaurant sales at our 3500 sq. ft. south Charlotte plant.

Currently Caribe Food Development sells products in supermarkets such as Food Lion, Winn Dixie, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo and Ingles throughout the Southeast. They also sell to specialty distributors who deliver Anntonys to many other retailers throughout the country. In addition we sell our products to restaurant suppliers such as PYA Monarch, and US Foodservice.

Anntony's Caribbean café products are unparalleled due to specially blended herbs and spices, distinctive to the Caribbean. They bring a special flavor to any dish.

Anntony's features award winning authentic Caribbean cuisine, including healthy low fat rotisserie style meats, vegetarian side items such as black beans, callaloo greens and sweet potato fries. In addition to their Caribbean crab cakes, grouper and homemade curry dishes are always excellent choices.

They offer fresh conch chowder, lobster bisque and black bean soup. Enjoy the spicy tropical flavors of the islands including Jerk chicken, loin back ribs, the best wings around, coconut encrusted seafood and Cuban roasted pork.

In their Island coffee bar (Asheville) they offer freshly roasted bean coffees from all over the world as well as delicious desserts, smoothies and gypsy teas. Live entertainment (weather permitting) on Friday & Saturday nights overlooking the streets of downtown Asheville.
