We just happened to stop at Cafe Livin because we had about an hour until we needed to go to the Car Barge. It was okay. Nothing special in my opinion. It was good for our quick stop, but I don't think I will go back.

We stopped after getting off the ferry from St Thomas on our way to the great beaches on St. John. Great place to "fuel up" for a great day at Trunk Bay. Egg sandwich, bagel, fruit and yogurt....all quite good. There are only a few tables so there may be a wait. We were lucky and did not have to... More

Ate here after dropping off my rental car and waiting for the ferry. The breakfast burrito was a great surprise ... very yummy! I enjoyed being there early and watching/listening to people as they headed to work. A good mix of locals and tourists that morning. Highly recommend!

We heard great things from other people we met about the breakfast they serve. We were leaving the island and decided to stop here before we caught the ferry. The blueberry pancakes were very good. I had ordered eggs, bacon and home fries. The potatoes were way over cooked and hard as a rock. The server noticed this and told... More

We ate here most mornings during our stay on St. John! The breakfast sandwiches were delicious and staff was friendly, most of the time.

The breakfast sandwiches on bagels are amazing! Much better than Panera or Big Apple Bagel back home. The breakfast potatoes are also delicious! This place is perfect for a quick, relatively inexpensive outdoor breakfast before heading off to the beach, or where ever your day takes you. We ate here most days.

We love this place. Outside under a canopy just off the sidewalk makes it a great place to meet people or just people watch. The pecan pancakes are AWESOME! The service is always friendly, but while it may not be as quick as some would like it to be, the key is to remember you are on Island Time....sit back,... More

We are a huge breakfast family. We explored St. John almost every morning looking for the best spot. We came across Cafe Livin on our 3rd day, and went back the remaining. The biscuits, bagels and burritos were all delicious!
