I do believe that the name of the place has changed since they have done some renovations to it but when you walk of the ferry, it's right there in front of you behind the "market square". I have eaten there pretty much every time I go over to the beach at St. John and have taken many friends there.... More

We ate there just once, but it was very good. Like so many places in St. Johns, you will wait for a long time to get breakfast, but the coffee was a bottomless cup, service very good and the food also worth the wait. If you can get a view at the ledge overlooking town, that's a plus.

We ate breakfast here at least 5 times on our last trip to St John. Obviously it was good! The portions are good, prices fair, the service ok. Good coffee!! I thought the place look very clean, with the cleanest restaurant bathrooms we ventured into on the island! Enjoy!!

Newly renovated and on the square in Cruz Bay. Currently they only have a lunch menu which is served all day but plan to expand to a dinner menu as well. The ambiance is pretty good as was the service. Hopefully the menu will develop and make it a place to go in Cruz Bay.

We love JJ's for a great breakfast and people watching and bay watching and bird watching. It's just fun. Service is very good.

Worst food we had on the island. Food was mediocre at best and the waitress kept forgetting about us, even though there were only about 2 occupied tables outside. Very disappointing. Although it appears from another reviewer that this restaurant is closed, no surprise.

This restaurant is closed & under construction to re-open as Cruz Bay Landing, according to the signs. For breakfast before catching the ferry, try Deli Grotto in Mongoose Junction. It is setup like a Panera or Corner Bakery, no waiting for servers.

Great place to catch breakfast on your first morning or every morning. Located right by the ferry dock its a great spot from which to start your day. Food is cooked fresh to order and the service is quick and courteous.

The long time owner retired and sold to a lovely young, energetic couple. He is the former owner of Woody 's!

It was just before the slow season, but this place couldn't make up there mind if they were serving breakfast lunch or dinner when we were there. When they did, it wasn't worth eating.Yuk!
