Bermuda Food and Drinks
However if you are looking for information about Bermuda's own style of food preparation and typical Bermudian meals, then check out Bermuda's Cuisine.
Well there are lot of varieties when it comes to Bermuda's local food. In many ways, Bermuda is still a trader of fine British goods, although the range of items is growing rapidly.
Bermuda Rum Cake is very special. If you relish a little rum flavor in a cake, this is the one for you to try. I find them just fabulous! I tried several different flavors, which were all very nice, but my favorite remains the original.
An English Breakfast with a slice of rum cake is what I love when I am in Bermuda.
Bermuda Rum Cake
Here are the two great makers of Bermuda Rum Cake:
The rum cakes are made exclusively with Gosling's Black Seal rum. Here are the flavors: The Traditional Black Rum, Rum and Ginger, Rum Swizzle, Banana Rum, Coffee, Coconut Rum and rich or dark chocolate rum.
The cake is duty free. The bakery is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. If ships are in Dockyard, the bakery remains open till 9 p.m.

Bermuda Fishcakes & Fish Sandwiches: In my quest to find the best places serving fish sandwiches and codfish cakes in Bermuda, I ended up eating so much fish that I gave up on it for weeks thereafter.
Bermuda Afternoon Tea: An old British custom of having tea, sandwiches & cakes in the afternoon has remained an island tradition. Visit Bermuda Afternoon Tea to know about the best places to go for having afternoon tea in Bermuda.
Being a coffee addict I didn't want to settle with the usual pre-mix liquid coffee from the dispensing machines that you so often get in Bermuda restaurants and coffee shops. I needed coffee made from fresh roasted beans. So I decided to tour the island in search of the best coffee shops in Bermuda. Check out Best Coffee in Bermuda to know about my findings.
If you are looking for Bermudian dishes for your lunch or dinner like the best of Bermuda Fish Chowder, grilled Rock Fish etc., there are plenty of restaurants serving excellent Bermudian food as well as other dishes.

Bermuda's Farm Products
If you are staying in an apartment having cooking facilities, and want nothing but fresh organic farm produce for your meals, then check out Wadson's Farm. This 30 acre farm is located in Southampton parish. It combines animal, poultry and vegetable farming and uses organic agriculture. There is an on-site retail shop, Wadson's Home Farm Market, that sells all kinds of fresh vegetables, fruits, poultry and meat items.
Bermuda Wine and Spirits
To compare prices between stores, shopping around Bermuda does not get very far because the Bermuda merchants' association keeps prices the same across the country. But liquor is an exception to this.
If you like rum, a great choice would be a bottle of Gosling's Black Seal rum. Add it to Barritts Ginger Beer and garnish with lemon wedge, and you get the traditional Dark 'n' Stormy cocktail! Bermuda Black Seal Rum is a high proof spirit. As I picked up my first ever bottle, it read 151% proof and 75.5% Alcohol/volume - Phew! You can pick up Gosling's rum from any of the liquor stores, or if you are returning by flight, from the duty free shop at the airport.

I am not a smoker. But I understand that for Cigar aficionados, Bermuda is the place to smoke Cuban hand-rolled cigars without censure. Cuban cigar is illegal in United States and few other places. But not so in Bermuda. Some great brands include Montecristo, Romeo Julieta, Trinidad, Cohiba, Partagas and Hoyo de Monterrey. Punch English Briar and Turkish Meerschaum pipes are very special in Bermuda.
Chatham House is an authorized distributor for cigars and located on Front Street, Hamilton, across the flagpole.
Humidor: This is a store for smokers and located in Clocktower Mall at the dockyard. They too sell Cuban cigars.
