The sister duo of Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau opened Summerhouse in April 2018 and since then, the establishment has been a hotspot for professionals in the neighbouring corporate area of New Kingston. Having a meal at Summerhouse at the Liguanea Club, is an exquisite dining experience, one that you can have at any time of the day- Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.
Breakfast service runs from 7 am to 10:30 am and guests can choose from an array of mouth-watering dishes such as authentic Jamaican breakfast items, a traditional continental breakfast, or build their own breakfast from the sides, toast, beverage and pastry basket options.
Host that business lunch or lunch date at Summerhouse as lunch service starts at 12 pm and ends at 3:30 pm.

Bar and Snacks
In the mood for a pick me up throughout the day? Well you’re in luck! The bar is open from lunch service begins straight until 10 pm. Just by glancing at the drink items listed you will be intrigued and enticed to try them all. Start off with their house named craft cocktail ‘Summerhouse Honey’ made from creamy French vanilla, rich Jameson whiskey, smooth honey, sharp triple sec all topped with fresh lime. Also available are the classics with a stronger punch, in the Manhattan, Negroni and Ti Ponche. Their extensive drink menu just might have you wishing it was five o’clock all day. Summerhouse gives bar snacks a new meaning with their not too common items such as cassava crusted shrimp and roasted vegetable galette. Usual favourites like Mac and Cheese become elevated to gourmet status with penne, chevre, Swiss cheese, chives and your choice of added lardons. Other meal options are jerked sausage, beef burger, grilled chicken, chips and a cheesy calalloo dip.
The ambiance at Summerhouse could only be described as relaxed and comfortable with an air of delicate elegance. This theme is amplified in their décor of deep navy and pearl white combination which extends throughout their cozy furniture and luxuriant tableware. The charming features of natural wooden beams above the outdoor terrace coupled with festoon lights gives off a rustic allure of a warm welcoming, summer home.
