I don't give many 5 stars on here but..

Sure, it's not haute cuisine, but it's the perfect place to start your day on STJ. Omelettes, American style breakfasts, and great pancakes. They are open 7:30 to 2pm serving breakfast the entire time, so if you get up late, no worries. We've hit them a up a few times on this last visit before a... read more

We love this spot for breakfast. It is delicious! Jake's is an open air grill on the second floor of a building in Cruz Bay. There is a great view from the balcony. We always order the regular--eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. The potatoes are exceptionally good. We've had lunch as well occasionally, but a late breakfast at Jake's is... More

Two couples went for a late breakfast and absolutely loved it. Breezy, open air and island feel. You do have to climb some stairs to get there, but it was worth it! I had the California omelet and it was very good. Others had the breakfast burrito, the corn beef hash and eggs, the last had blueberry pancakes. Not a... More

Best breakfast on St John is an understatement. Great service, friendly staff. Must try the cornbeef hash! To die for! Great eggs and their jams are very good as well. Will be back every chance we get

We ate lunch here one day and the breakfast menu looked so good we were back the next day for it! The prices are on par for the island and I feel like we got better service and better food here than at other places. Everything was fantastic and came out quickly. The servers were much nicer and more attentive... More

Very good breakfast in a nice breezy spot. Quick and delicious food at a pretty good price. My husband picked up a great T-shirt for a souvenir

When on vacation, I never go to any restaurant twice, but I made an exception for Jake's. Great breakfast/lunch in the morning before heading out for a day's adventures on St. John. Located in the Lumberyard Complex, a bit of a walk from the port, but worth it. Just go!

Everything was great here for breakfast to get your day started on St. John. The service was great and everyone in my group had an awesome breakfast. The bloodys and screwdrivers also rocked. Can't say I've ever had better corned beef hash.

With the many choices for Breakfast in St John, one stands out head & Shoulders above the rest. This last visit I had the best breakfast I can remember. The owner is in the kitchen and the staff is excellent. Don't miss talking to Sabrina. She is most knowledgeable about the Island and what's happening. Perfect way to start your... More

Jake's was delicious and the service was wonderful. We got there 20 minutes before they usually open and Carl, the owner, was nice enough to let us in and order. The place is cute inside and Carl and the waitress were so pleasant. Food was incredibly tasty. My boyfriend got their specialty the slow-roasted corned beef hash and said it... More
