LOVE this little piece of Paradise!

With every visit to St. Croix I always plan a night (or more) dining at Beachside Café. Not only is the view extraordinary, but the food never fails to please the palate, and the servers always greet me like a long lost friend.

The beach side cafe has good food, no doubt. It is not cheap, but when the food is good, it is not so important. We went one night for drinks and dessert. The white chocolate bread pudding is to die for. Very tasty! The brownie sundae is good too. We went for brunch but because it was Mother's day it... More

Dear Kamal, you don't know me but I know you. You were not even polite enough to introduce yourself to me. Two OTHER people had to tell me who you were and that you were my server. Maybe they should've been reminding you instead? I heard the bar tender ask you several times to get us things but unfortunately you... More

As residents of St. Croix, we frequent all restaurants on STX and take guests there frequently. We decided to visit Beach Side Cafe and try out the new chef there. BIG disappointment. Mushroom soup came out cold with a film on, both steaks were cold and not done according to our order...rib eyes and were full of fat and grizzle.... More

Although we have visited St. Croix annually for 17 years, we had never been to Beach Side Cafe as it was a long distance from our usual lodging. With more time on the island this year, we were determined to see what all the great reviews were about and we were not disappointed. We dined at Beach Side twice--once with... More

Right on the beach, if you plan to go to Sunday Brunch, I recommend reservations, ask for a table close to the beach, (table 3 & 4 are great). I had the Banana French toast, it was excellent!

This restaurant is right next door to the place where we stayed "Cottages By The Sea" which was a huge help because there are no other restaurants anywhere nearby. They have excellent food and it is right on the beach so you can enjoy the sunset while you eat your meal. Our favorite was Sunday Brunch. We had the banana... More
