No meat? Then this is the place for you. Cooked fresh daily, te menu includes tofu, coook-up rice, veggies in season, plantains, pastas, and fresh all natural fruit juices. Get there early because there's always a line! Eat in or take out.

After giving a great review on Coalpot and their sumptous food, today for lunch I ordered stewed pork and after my first three bites there was a roach perched in my lunch. That simply means there are roaches at Coalpot and this needs to be checked. There went any desire to eat there again.

If you like rice, you will be happy. You need to carefully search the other ingredients. Good for a quick lunch, but do not expect an unforgettable culinary experience, even from a local point of view.

The food is great but the place needs some upgrading. I didn't like the idea of having to share a table with a stranger.

I landed in Georgetown for 3 days on a 5 country expedition. Asked some locals were some good, authentic fresh prepared Guyanese food was. I was pointed to Coal Pot Cafeteria. As an American I stick out like a sore thumb and its easy for most locals to pass you off or not help you. This was not the case... More
