We stopped in here prior to heading to the beach and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the lunch sandwiches. The turkey and the roast beef were fresh and piled high. Little on the pricy side, but worth it.

Fresh ingredients for food made to order. Enjoyed two lunches here and was not disappointed either time. Average about $10 for a lunch with drink; however, odds are that you won't eat the entire sandwich and will pack it for the short hike to the beach or the ferry ride. Clean and neat facilities. No skimping on the portion sizes.

While on vacation this became our go to lunch spot for most days after we had worked up an appetite from snorkling. Great eelection of hot and cold sandwiches with fresh made bread. There were also some great looking desserts but we were too full to try any. We'll be back here next year for sure

we picked up sandwiches before trips out to the beaches twice during the week, both times it was not busy but cold sandwiches still took 20 minutes to prepare for take away. The first time we thought it might be a fluke but it was confirmed on out next visit. The chicken salad is great, but there seem to be... More

This is a great stop for breakfast sandwiches. They are so very good and fresh. They also stock everything you'd need for a day at the beach (drinks, snacks, sunscreen). It's an easy stop if you're taking the shore route to the beaches. Service is great. Plan on it taking at least 10 minutes for the sandwiches.

This used be a great place to go for breakfast and to pick up a sandwich or salad. The restaurant itself has been remodeled and looks very nice, but unfortunately the food is not of the same quality it once was. I had a breakfast sandwich that before was wonderful. Full of fresh eggs and whatever meat you chose. This... More

Delicious sandwiches, drinks, and snacks. Perfect for packing a picnic. Try the coconut bars! Fantastic variety for wraps and sandwiches.

We visited Deli Grotto every day on our trip, usually for coffee, but a few times for sandwiches too. Their entire menu was fantastic. Great food and drinks at a decent price for St. John. Their meals are perfect for taking with you to the beach or for people who rented a vacation rental instead of staying at one of... More
