Can't beat breakfast, nice view!

Stopped at Jake's in Cruz Bay for breakfast. Not the fastest, but friendly service, great coffee, and tasty! View of the water, open air, refreshing. Charming place with character. Would eat again.

The best place for Breakfast in St John. Prices good. Food excellent Service excellent. We ate breakfast multiple times at Jake's. Perfect to start off the day. Breakfast is served till 2:00pm. Sabrina is an excellent waitress. She added to our great St John vacation.

We arrived for breakfast after two large parties and had to wait 25 minutes for our food but it was worth it...delicious scrambled eggs and the fluffiest, yummiest pancakes. Service was busy but pleasant... a great local pick for breakfast before a St. John beach visit.

Seems like a good local place for breakfast. We thought the breakfast was very good. Service casual and food typical breakfast fare which is perfect if you are looking for that.

Best breakfast on the island! Omelets are to die for. Pancakes are divine. They make a decent Bloody Mary. Great view if the seats are available. I feel like I shouldn't share this little secret spot. It's a must if you want some good breakfast food. It has been consistently good time after time after time. Don't judge it by... More

The view is awesome and the service as excellent. The... More

Stoped here on way out of St. John. Jakes is a great breakfast location (upstairs) and has the best Bloody Mary's. Breakfast selection good and staff was awesome.

Alright, get the picture. It had rained that morning, but the rain had stopped. There is a rainbow over Cruz Bay. Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash are alternating at a gentle volume on the speaker behind me as I sip my coffee awaiting my breakfast. My stack of three blueberry pancakes arrives. They have a hint of crispiness on the... More
