Grabbed a take out specialty pizza one day and it was awesome. Fresh ingredients and I was able to watch the chef prepare it. The chef and wait staff were very friendly while we waited and other meals that were being served looked wonderful as well. Well worth a stop while shopping

Mongoose Junction is a lovely setting. I've been coming to St John for over 30 years and try to get back at least once every year. Food is good, it's a nice distance from the hubbub of Cruz Bay. I can't wait to go back in December! Definitely ask for Amy - she will recommend favorite dishes and is a... More

Sun Dog Cafe has great casual dining with good service. My wife had veggie burger, potato salad & iced tea which were all homemade & great. I had Shrimp Vera Cruz which was outstanding.

Came here and split some Tuna with my wife. We also had hummus as an app. The food was good. The outdoor seating is nice and the atmosphere is causal. I would suggest that you come here if you are looking for reasonable priced food and no pressure service. All in all a nice place to go.

While shopping at Mongoose Junction we decided to have lunch at Sun Dog Cafe. We had quite a variety of food.....the Burrito that Ate Cruz Bay, Fish Tacos, a curry chicken dish and some island drinks...all delicious.

The title explains it all. Every time we are on St. John we visit Sun Dog Cafe for drinks and typically the special of the day. We have never had a bad meal

We ate dinner at the Sun Dog Cafe on the last night of our trip to stay John (Halloween). This is a small little spot in Mongoose Junction that is maybe 10 tables. We have been to St John several times, but have never eaten here (thinking they only had lunch for some reason). My husband had the Roti and... More

We came here for lunch twice during our vacation. The burrito was very good, and I had quesadillas which were good, but nothing amazing. A little bland. We got rum smoothies with our lunch which really had no flavor to them either. I would go back for that burrito again, and just get a regular drink! Conveniently located in the... More
