I had a bahammma mamma delish. Bartender from Minnesota was the best. Sat down next to me in the chair to describe the special and offer his recommendations. Got a full history lesson about the building and St. Thomas, so much fun. Highly recommend it.

The dive shop I was doing a do e with recommended this place and the Shrimp Roti and Lobster, shrimp quesadilla were great although a bit pricey for a cafe.

We were all so warmly welcomed by the staff we felt like we were all one of the locals. They have great food and offer those who need to eat quickly menu items with little bus symbols next to them so that you know that is a food that can be prepared quickly for you if you want. I had... More

Stopped by this spot for some ice cream in the middle of the afternoon on a very hot, sunny day. Turned out to be the perfect choice. Ice cream flavors were all displayed clearly in a case and selected the cherry vanilla ice cream. Got a full cup of ice cream for about $3-$4. Plenty of self-seating available to enjoy... More

This was the best breakfast we had while vacationing in St Thomas. Recommended by a local and sure happy we went. The owner is a hoot, made us feel right at home. We had an order of pancakes and a breakfast burrito that was amazing. Both fresh and plentiful. Great find and highly recommended.

Nice cozy spot in town. Jen was a gracious host, our server (originally from Chicago), was welcoming and very attentive and the food was fresh, very good, and portions very generous. Try the Conch Fritters, definitely a treat.

Stopped here on a recommendation of a local. The place was typical beach bar fare but the staff was friendly and the food was very good. Great place for lunch and a rest before heading back to the cruise ship.
