You might have to wait a few minutes for your sandwich because this place is hustling and bustling all hours of the day! The sandwiches are great and the service comes with a smile. They have everything you need for a great day at the beach!

After a fun day at Trunk Bay Beach we came back to town with three things in mind before heading back to St Thomas. Cool down, eat lunch and shop for gifts. We found it all at Mongoose Junction. The first was to cool down with some indoor AC. The 2nd to get some good food while cooling down. And... More

We ate here 3 different times for lunch during our week-long stay. The first time we paid. $1.50 per Capri Sun, $1.50 for a can of soda, & $3.50 for a Snapple. The 2nd time I didn't look at the receipt carefully, but I think it was the same. The 3rd time we ordered 2 Capri Suns & a can... More

My husband and I lef the beach to come get a quick lunch here. Nice to sit in the AC! Had great options on the menu. Sandwiches were large - could have split one. We liked the pasta salad and our sandwiches were good. A little pricey for a couple of sub sandwiches, but not horrible. We would visit again.

The food was excellent, especially the Portabella and Mozzarella Panini. We liked it so much we went back a second time. Service was very slow on our first visit, better on the second. A great place to get sandwiches to take to the beach.

We tried Deli Grotto a few years ago and it was okay then and it is still just okay now. One of the paninis we ordered (portobello mushroom with caramelized onion) was barely cooked and quite flavorless, with a paltry onion sliver or two to count as the caramelized onion. The chicken curry sandwich was dripping in curry sauce to... More

Great selection of sandwiches and salads for breakfast and lunch. Frest breads and meats at reasonable prices. This is an excellent place to pick up lunch to take to the beach. Cash only.

Deli Grotto has great food. We like to hit this place for lunch as a break from the beach and sun, or grab sandwiches in the morning and throw them in a cooler to eat while we are knocking around the island. Give it a try!
