We always stop for lunch at Gladys when we're in St. Thomas. It's open for breakfast & lunch only so we stop for lunch when we're in town shopping. The food is the best experience you can have if you're looking for authentic Caribbean food....More

Always have breakfast at Gladys' at least once every time we're in St. Thomas. Great food, great service, great prices and a truly magnificent old building from the 1830's (after the fire that destroyed much of St. Thomas).

The food at this resturant was amazing. Went on a local food tour around the area and this was one of the stops. This was ny favorite. Nice staff and the seasoning on the food was excellent. You must try their hot sauce!!

My young waiter highly recommended the curried chicken special with plantains and a neighboring table had fish. It was so filling and a delightful atmosphere.

Gladys serves up a few local dishes with the usual burgers and fries. I had the mahi mahi sandwich. The roll is a cross between potato bread and Hiawaiian bread. Very good. Pass on the cole slaw though.

A must for anyone in downtown Charlotte Amalie. A true taste of the islands. Fresh local food. And the best pina colatas on St. Thomas.

Hello, I am renting a car, on Google Maps there doesn't appear to be much parking in the area. We are staying at the Marriott and Glady's Cafe was suggested by the concierge. Any suggestions for transportation or is there local parking? Thanks in advance!
