Lake Aumond offers a variety of restaurants, cafes and other eateries to satisfy even the pickiest eater or fill the odd craving.
Rae’s Coastal Café has been a local favorite since it opened its doors in 1992. The chefs specialize in Jamaican jerk chicken, but other dishes on the menu are just as savory as the restaurant's staple. Grab an order of jerk chicken wings for an appetizer before digging into your entrée. Try the scallops — prepared each day at the whimsy of the chef; baked, sautéed or grilled, delectable in all forms. Locals gather at the full bar to have a drink and converse with friends and neighbors. Use your GPS, and follow the route specifically because the unassuming building in the middle of a residential area can be somewhat hard to find.
