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

We had breakfast here twice during our March 2015 honeymoon. Fabulous omelets! Highly recommend eating here. Cute decor on the walls (fun signs to read). Place is clean, food is great. They offer homemade jelly for your toast. Would eat here again on our next visit to St. John.

Service was extremely slow - more a kitched issue than the waitress. Food was cold when it arrived. Not worth all of the extra time it took.

Easily the best breakfast on St. John. Don't be deceived by the poor decor - the food is outstanding. Make sure to try the corned beef hash and the variety of delicious omelets. The coffee is also strong and about the closest thing you will find to gourmet coffee on the island. My advice is to get there early (before... More

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.

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.

On a day trip from St Thomas, great spot. Got parked in the Park Office public parking and it's a short walk up the road. Staff were very friendly and gave us some good tips on our hike. places to go. Even found us when we left our free map there rather than throw it away. Try and get a... More
