Named for Princess Louise, the Duchess of Argyll – the hotel’s namesake – The Duchess Café and Gelateria is Bermuda’s hottest new coffee shop destination.
Hamilton Princess & Beach Club has suspended all hotel operations from Saturday, March 21nd until Friday, May 15th. This temporary hotel closure means a suspension of all services, including overnight stays, spa and all food & beverage venues, which includes Marcus’, 1609 Bar & Restaurant, Crown & Anchor, The Duchess Café & Gelateria, The Beach Club and Exhale Spa.
Whether you have plans to explore the island or have back-to-back meetings, take a moment to savour a cup of delicious Chemex slow pour coffee or one of our Lot 35 teas as you prepare for the day ahead. Opening at 6am every morning, a stop at The Duchess for a hot drink and a freshly baked pastry is the perfect way to start your day on the right foot.
If you’re looking to grab-and-go, look no further. Breakfast and lunch, made fresh each day, will be available for dining in or pre-packaged for those on the run. Example offerings include savoury breakfast sandwiches, Italian Prosciutto Baguette, Pressed Pulled Chicken Focaccia, Low Carb Grilled Salmon Salad and much more. You can also stock up on delicious snacks and soft drinks so you have everything you need for a busy day.
If you have time to spare, why not pull up one of the retro chairs and enjoy a leisurely coffee, such as a signature NitroBrew, and a sweet treat in the stylish space and take in the incredible artwork. The Duchess boasts a selection of delicious homemade gelatos and creative milkshakes which are sure to impress the whole family and a great way to cool from the Bermuda sunshine.
The daughter of Queen Victoria, Princess Louise, was one of the pioneers of Bermuda’s tourism, wintering on the island and setting a trend that continues today. Her patronage of the arts has made her a fitting namesake for the hotel and for The Duchess, which prides itself on its style and modern art collection.
