About Flavors of Jamaica
Flavors of Jamaica restaurant first opened it's doors on March 23rd 2020. Chef Reniel Billups opened Flavors with a vision to offer Traditional Jamaican Cuisine along with self created non traditional Caribbean infused dishes inspired by cuisines from various cultures. A restaurant with adequate casual dining space was essential for creating an atmosphere that would elevate the level of appreciation for Jamaican cuisine and culture. Flavors of Jamaica is a restaurant of welcome to Vegetarian and Vegan customers as there is a Vegan version for most of our non Vegan menu items available. Flavors also serves proteins that are Halal to provide a desirable selection of menu items for our customers that will only consume Halal foods.

Sunday is Brunch Day at Flavors! From 10am to 4pm we serve a unique Caribbean inspired Brunch which includes traditional Brunch items, some traditional Jamaican items, and some Caribbean infused menu items with an equally large Vegan only menu. Being located in the City of Pontiac, Flavors of Jamaica is working hard to be a contributing partner in the city's renaissance by giving back to the community through various avenues.
