What a great place. You feel like you are family. Met Joan and her sons all very nice. The food is so good. Fridays pat'es are excellent. Beef & seafood. We had breakfast there a couple of times everything was delicious. Offers breakfast lunch & dinner opens at 7am. Also rents dinghys. Thank for making our trip even more enjoyable.

Be sure to stop in this little gem for a breakfast pat'e. Very much like a empanada, only better! We met all of the owners family at different spots on the island. My wife and I felt part of Joan's family.

On a trip as magnificent as boating around BVI, meeting Joan and enjoying her small space in the world for breakfast was near the top of the list. The service industry in BVI (especially during the off season) is an interesting creature. Laid back to the point of ambivalence in some cases. Everyone we met at Sugar and Spice (don't... More

Sure you got to visit Foxy's while at Jost, but if you want a TRULY unique island experience, take your group over to Joan at Sugar and Spice. You'll be treated like family, not as tourists and chances are your group will have Joan (and her son Kenny's) undivided attention for dinner. And what better way to wake up after... More

We ate here every morning while on island. Great homemade breakfast sandwiches with very friendly service. The owner (Joan) also had some fresh picked bananas from one of her trees the week we were there and they delicious. Nothing fancy, just a few picnic bench style tables right by the ferry dock, but great view of the town from there.

We came here to get a snack and we were not impressed. The lady there was no friendly at all. Maybe it was a bad day?

After our weeks visit at Sandcastle Hotel on JVD last week, we left for the ferry a little early so we could stop in at Sugar and Spice Snack Bar for a quick bite to eat. Joan was behind the counter and very eager to serve us Patties she made that morning that had fish in it. Admittedly, both my... More

Last year we happened to stumble upon this place while waiting for a ferry back to St. John. My husband was quite hungry and Joan told him that she could make him a homemade chicken roti before the ferry left. We wound up having to board the ferry when Joan came running out to hand my husband the roti. When... More

The BEST patties! Yummy dough filled goodness! Awesome chicken roti. Joan was very pleasant. Definite must as you arrive or leave via ferry. Also a fantastic grab and go option. But with all good things, it takes time. Joan and her family are fun to talk with about the local scene. Make sure you have a few minutes to spare,... More
