Caribbean Twist opening second location in Discovery Centre

"Spicing up downtown," says owner Lyndon Hibbert.


The much-loved Caribbean Twist is opening up a new location out of the Discovery Center on Barrington Street. Taking over the now-closed Discover Jane’s space, Caribbean Twist will be bringing its tasty, traditional Jamaican grub to Halifax’s downtown.

“I’ve been looking for a place closer to the university students and the opportunity came up,” says owner Lyndon Hibbert. He says the Discovery Center was looking for a restaurant that could provide a niche product and Caribbean Twist fit the bill.

It’ll be a smaller space than the original restaurant on Gottingen Street and will cater more towards take-out than dining in, although the menu will remain mostly the same. Hibbert says there’ll be a chance to dine in between 10am and 5pm during the week and outside of that, take-out options only.

“We’re going to come in and spice up the downtown core,” says Hibbert. And boy, are we ready. The new location is set to open on Monday.

We’re drooling already.
