We've gotten SUPER bread from these folks. I mean, really really good. We would take it, have them slice it, then make sandwiches. Their coffee machine is broken sometimes so that's a bummer. It's pretty much all inside so not super atmosphere - but superb prices and great food.

We stopped in here on a couple of mornings and got sandwiches to go. One sandwich was big enough for 2 of us to share. We also got one of their monstrous coconuts bars, and it was delicious! The bottom layer was granola, then a lay of rich chocolate, and then a 3" layer of delicious coconut. We ate half... More

We stopped here to pick up breakfast and lunch many times. The sandwiches were always excellent. I saw some reviews complaining about the guy that is sometimes on the cash register. He was very nice and polite to us. I can totally see how the people that wander to the register with no clue as to what they want drive... More

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.
