Description
The Patois brand is synonymous with fine authentic Jamaican cuisine. We really love Jamaican food and we believe that when Jamaican food is prepared with the right mix of quality seasonings and spices, skillfully cooked in just the right manner and infused with love, the taste is unparalleled. That's what we do at Patois.
