One of the city's rare Barbadian cafés, Cock's offers the full range of Bajan culinary delicacies, from the signature flying fish with cou cou (a sculpted mass of cornmeal porridge with fried fish in a zippy gravy) to puddina and souse (the former a cross between haggis and blood sausage stuffed with sweet potatoes, the latter a pickle of pig face parts). As if these weren't enough, there is also a line of humorously named baked goods, like lead pipe and conkies. Don't miss sweet coconut rolls and other more perishable pastries available mainly on the weekends.
