Burgers are high up on the list of anyone looking for a bite to eat or a great culinary experience. There is many good burger places in Bermuda and every year the battle for the best hamburger award is fierce. Despite the amazing concurrence, Dorothy’s Coffee Shop keeps on winning!
The walls of this little burger joint on Chancery Lane, in Hamilton are covered with awards from The Bermudian to prove that its reputation as the best hamburger place in Bermuda is not just a one-off. Dorothy’s burgers lovers go as far as saying that these are ‘the tastiest freshest succulent burgers ever known to exist on the planet’!
The best thing is that not only the coffee shop has the best hamburgers in town – and on the island – but they are also incredibly cheap, especially when compared to the majority of food places in Bermuda. You can get a burger at Dorothy’s for $4.25 (£2.70) plus 25 cents per topping. For once, that is not too good to be true!
What make the burgers of Dorothy’s Coffee Shop so great is that they are classic coffee shops burgers. They have no variations or fancy additions, they are just what they claim to be, hamburgers. Even at this tiny price, burgers come with all you would expect. IF you want the best accompaniment ask for ‘The Works’.This burger comes with as lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, as well as a sweet and delicious pickle relish.
Dorothy’s speciality is to make the best hamburgers and they concentrate their efforts doing just that. That is why like in many hamburgers places, they don’t try to make French fries but you can get grilled onions and a milk shake to make your experience complete. All their time is dedicated to make the best hamburger possible and they are successful at it many times over.
The place is what you would expect from a little burger joint, but probably not from a best hamburger multi-award winner restaurant. In the most classic style, Dorothy’s Coffee Shop is small and has just a few stools at the counter, for about 8 people or so. But the shop is located only a few minutes from the Front Street, the heart of Hamilton Harbour. You can take your burger away and savour it on a bench in Front Street while admiring the harbour and the buildings of typical colonial style and their pastel coloured walls. This will be a feast for your eyes and your mouth!
Don’t expect to find Dorothy’s Coffee Shop on the high street with a flashy window advertising their prized burgers. You’ll need to go to Chancery Lane, a small street that leads from Front Street to Reid Street, and get up some few stairs to find the shop. But don’t worry, as soon as you step into the lane, you will be guided by the amazing smell of the best hamburgers you have ever tasted.
Be aware that as the home of the best hamburger on the island, Dorothy’s Coffee Shop can get a bit busy. But if you don’t have the time to wait, you can still order you burger early in the day and pick it up. Note also that it is only open from breakfast to 4pm so don’t wait dinner time to go and try the best hamburger in Bermuda!
