Sidewalk Dining At Its Best

This eclectic side-walk Cafe has been open for several years and it's amazing the quality of food they turn out of a very small kitchen. I have eaten here several times over the years and never been disappointed. Great for breakfast when you're in a hurry to go to the beach or relax at your... read more

We heard about this place on the ferry over and it took us all week to find it!!!!! But our last day we needed something to take with us for the long journey home. The owner was very helpful, packed us a nice lunch and sent us off. Thanks!!! The sandwiches also used real meat!! A first for our experience... More

We enjoyed two visits to Cafe Livin while on St. John. Great drinks and food - on Friday night we were amazed by the fresh sushi! The tuna roll was fantastic and my husband was converted to being a sushi lover with the tempura shrimp scorpion roll. What a convenient location for delicious coffee and breakfast sandwiches while downtown, waiting... More

It's just ok for breakfast. It has very few options. I had a bowl of granola with fruits (few blueberries to be more precise), $6. And we also had some eggs with tortilla (migas) that were fine, $9. Very pushy service and cash only.

Great breakfast and very pleasant service. Bloody Mary's were fabulous. I usually had the same; eggs over easy with home fries but so yummy. My son loved the croissant egg sandwiches too. People watching very fun too.

We enjoyed a nice breakfast here. I had a veggie omlette and my husband had a breakfast sandwich. The omlette wasn't on the menu though they did not hesitate to accomodate the request. The waitress was super sweet.

We ordered two milkshakes for $7 each. They were 8 ounce cups and weren't even filled up all the way, the server was not friendly, and the shake was made out of ice and a milk mix. I see lots of other good reviews, so I would suggest avoiding the iced milkshakes. The location is convenient.

We stopped here on our way back from St. John after a week in Coral Bay. We had time to kill, it was 10:00 a.m. and no restaurants were open but this one. And we are so glad! The place was hoppin' but the woman who helped us never seemed stressed and was seriouly one of the friendliest people I'd... More
