I always visit St. John Spice for a friendly greeting with a smile and my favorite grill rub, Cruz Bay Grill Rub! They have a variety of other spices influenced by the local Caribbean culture and cuisine, as well as hot sauces, coffees and teas. Also a wonderful stop for small trinkets such as ornaments, magnets, and small toys and... More

Went to St. John for our 35 anniversary . Wanted to bring gifts back for our grown kids. Found beautiful glass margarita and wine glasses. Happy with our purchases. Check out their spices, coffee cups and sauces.

This is a great little shop with teas, coffee, spices, sauces, and various trinkets. The cashier was friendly and helpful. we bought coffee, spices, and a few souvenirs and she wrapped them carefully for us. Delightful experience when first entering St. John at the ferry.

Spend time and get to know the spices. Huge selection for every taste bud. Leave room in the bag to cart home a year's worth of Caribbean spices and sauces.

We had a blast talking with the owner and smelling the coffee she was grinding that morning. Bought a cute purse- made in St. John of course. Hubby purchased some blueberry Rooibos tea. A great selection of teas, spices, sauces, etc. Even if you don't buy anything, it is a wonderful shop!

This was a very interesting store to go to. The spice rubs were plenty. The hot sauces you can taste before you purchase. They have some other gift items which were reasonably priced. I would visit this store for items to bring home. Had some nice gift sets.

This place had a huge selection of spices! We found the prices here to be better than what can be purchased on Tortola. They also have a large selection of teas and coffee. New location is upstairs and is air conditioned!

If you visit Cruz Bay, St John, USVI, and like coffee, tea, or hot sauce, this is the place for you. We make this our first stop every year to pick up wonderful coffee. I especially like their Jamaican Blue Mountain and Guatemalan blends. My daughter thinks their coconut blend is the best. They have one of the best and... More

We walked all over Cruz bay and St. John spice company had the best selection of souvenirs to take home for the kids and family. And it's right off the ferry dock! Also, they had very reasonable prices.
