In any business, it is generally the staff who are responsible for the success or failure of a company. I am thrilled to say that Omar's Cafe has a great team of truly wonderful people and very possibly the best staff in the entire BVI. Of course I am a little biased because I hand picked each one of them. So without further ado, please meet ...
Ashanti Hurst - Server & Co-Owner
Ashanti is one of several servers here at Omar's Cafe, she is also my wife and doting mother to our three young children. Ashanti may seem a bit shy at first, but she has a marvelous sense of humour and takes her work and our business very seriously. She is always concerned about quality control and if something isn’t quite right, I can always count on Ashanti to bring it to my attention so that we can have it corrected right away.
Though we don't get a lot of time off during the season, Ashanti treasures quiet time at home with our children. Although she'll never admit it, she's addicted to TV.
Jay Andrews - Server & Coffee Barista Extraordinaire
Jay is your always pleasant and attentive server with an uncanny memory for faces ... and she makes a mean cup of cappuccino or cafe latte as well! Most of the servers rely on Jay to make their specialty coffees for them when things get busy.
Jay says she doesn't know where the time goes, but when not working, she spends most of her time enjoying her family. On the odd occasion and when the mood strikes, she might play a game of netball or two.
La Fleur (Flo) Williams - Cook
Flo is my indispensable right hand lady. Ashanti and I really can't say enough about her. She is dedicated, reliable, has a wonderful attitude towards her work, the customers love her and she's fun to be around. On the odd occasion when Ashanti and I get a chance to take a day or two off, Flo is the one we leave in charge of the operation. Despite the pressures on her in the kitchen, we can always count on Flo to be quick with a smile.
Believe it or not, when Flo gets time off to relax and do anything her heart desires ... she spends that time in the kitchen trying her hand at new recipes of her own making! She LOVES to cook!
Preya James - Server
A native of Guyana, Preya is a delightful person to be around as she finds humor in just about everything. She works hard at meeting the customers needs while always remaining attentive and polite.
Preya enjoys Playing netball, loves a good cricket match and finds surfing the web a great way to learn new things. Preya is always eager to please and is a marvelous team player. When not working, she enjoys spending time playing games with her little son.
Vandar Delpesche - kitchen helper
The newest addition to our staff is our dishwasher. Being humble and a dedicated worker as well as an avid soccer fan, Vandar is a perfect fit with the rest of our team. She hails from St.Vincent and is a devoted mother of four.
In her spare time Vandar loves traveling and familiarising herself with almost every aspect of the different Caribbean islands. She is an aspiring chef and is quick to learn. At every opportunity, she has managed to prove herself more than capable.
Ysann Pope - Server
Where to begin ... Ysann is probably our most colorful character at Omar's Cafe. She has a bubbly temperament which can be extremely contagious. She's a St.Vincent national and meshes very well with the rest of our team. Oh ... and she hates having her photo taken! :)
