Great ambience and friendly service. . Only ever had breakfast but have never been disappointed. Fresh omelettes. Generous servings. Good coffee. Don't eat here if you are in a hurry but excellent place for leisurely breakfast to ease into island time.

Delicious breakfast -- so good we came back for lunch a few days later. Daily drink specials--we enjoyed the Bloody Mary's with horseradish. Full breakfast was terrific and filling before our sailing adventure. For lunch we had the Mahi Mahi sandwich. Wonderful. A charming location, beautiful, classic Caribbean architecture. Worth the walk.

Always have at least one breakfast here when we visit St Thomas. Everything is cooked fresh and very tasty. Prices are reasonable and the staff is courteous and friendly.

Food was good but service was very slow. Has a lot of charm - great little spot. Hard to find back in the alley but worth it!
