This is one of those out-of-the-way places the locals tell you about after a drink or two. Well worth the drive from Christianstead or anywhere else on St. Croix. We will be back the next time we are on St. Croix for sure.

Just returned from St Croix, and other than the stunning beaches our favorite memory is of South Shore Cafe. This tiny restaurant is run completely from front to back by one woman. She does it all expertly! There are only about 5 tables and a...More

Dinner at South Shore is truly a treat - you are a guest in Diane's home. She cooks almost everything from scratch and the pastas and sauces are just to die for. And save room for homemade dessert! Always one of our favorite meals -...More
