We stopped by for sandwiches for our beach cooler and were not disappointed. Everything tasted so fresh and yummy! Chips and drinks are available to purchase as well. Made for a wonderful picnic on Trunk Bay!

We stopped by Deli Grotto to get sandwiches for the plane ride home after years of being disappointed with the food at the airport. We will be adding Deli Grotto to our return trip itinerary from now on. The folks seated next to us on the plane were very jealous.

We visited Deli Grotto to pick up sandwiches for the beach and we were very happy with our choice. This stop was recommended by the caretaker of our rental in St. Thomas. We visited Deli Grotto while on a day trip to St. John. We enjoyed grilled chicken paninis, tuna wraps and Italian grinders. Everyone enjoyed their meals! This would... More

Perfect place to grab your lunch before heading to the beach for the day. The smoothies are very good as well. Usually crowded so be prepared to wait.

Great spot tucked in Mongoose. Had a great omelet before heading out on the boat we were chartering across the street. Large selection of breakfast items and sandwiches, and reasonable prices. Cleanest bathroom on island I think! Do note it's cash only. Service was quick too.

Good coffee and yummy pastries. They had a great looking curry chicken salad, but we didn't try it as we were off to the beach. Friendly service too :)

Located in Mongoose Junction this is the best deli St John has to offer. Great stop for breakfast or a sandwich to take to the beach. Try out the sweets and wonderful breads.

We've seem this little spot before and probably stopped in for cold water or such, but this time we were looking for a lunch stop. We were salty and dirty from beach hopping and looking for ease. For the mere fact that this store is heavily air conditioned, it should be a stopping point for a few minutes in the... More
