The Duchess Café & Gelateria, Bermuda

The Hamilton Princess Hotel added a feather to its already illustrious cap by opening a stylish new coffee shop- The Duchess Café and Gelateria. It was opened in March 2020 and named for the Duchess of Argyll - Princess Louise, the namesake of the hotel.

Apart from a range of teas, coffees, pastries, salads, smoothies, shakes and gelato, the café serves breakfast and lunch as well. Prepared fresh every day, the meals are also available for take-out. 

Style and Decor

The décor is done very tastefully with the pink color featuring in the ceiling stripes, banquette seating and piping on the chairs. It is also in conjunction with the rest of the hotel’s look and feel and reflects its elegant style with a slight retro twist to it. The set-up is further accentuated with some great artwork and the eye-catching palm print wallpaper. 

Food and Drinks

The gelatos are hand crafted and made in the hotel’s very own patisserie. Some the flavors to look out for are the Mint Chocolate Sorbet, Pistachio and Salted Caramel. They serve some exciting milkshakes too, made with the in-house made gelato!
