Fantastic breakfast, tremendous value, lovely atmosphere. I had a healthy egg white omelette that tasted like sinful comfort food. The prices astonished me after eating elsewhere on the island. And the lovely fresh flowers on each table amongst the cool stone walls made it a fantastic island morning.

Gladys's is a must every time we are in St. Thomas. Terrific service, atmosphere and the food is terrific. We tried most of the local dishes on the menu. We love the whole fish, curried goat and conch. Fresh Colada's with fresh fruit are terrific. And, the Gladys's Hot Sauces are a must. We always take a few bottles home... More

We enjoyed the setting, food and service of this hidden gem in Charlotte Amalie. Our taxi driver recommended the location and we were delighted to find a reasonably-priced menu, great attentive waitress, and breakfast that was delcious. Try the french toast or omelettes, both were great.

High expectations for this place as it has amazing reviews and it looks like it would have unique local food. Reality was that it was an adorable café with super sweet servers but the food was just average and in fact my entrée,Jerk chicken dinner, was served barely warm, and my tiny side of rice was actually a little cold....

I guess when so many people speak highly of a place, your expectations are very high. So I'm just to say that it was OK. Nothing to brag about and unfortunately one of the few restaurants in the area that had breakfast.

We love good food, seek it out everywhere we travel, and are willing to pay for it. Wish I could give Gladys' a better review, but it's just not worth the price. Lobster salad in 1/2 avocado is always a favorite - but for $23? And $15 for a small glass of Pinot Grigio at lunch? That is just ripping... More

Well-known to the many cruise liners so can be extremely crowded on big ship days...but it's cuisine you won't find on any ship! Try the local conch in butter sauce and johnny cakes

We visited St Thomas as a family, stayed at one of the Marriott resorts. We went to Gladys Cafe two times- one for lunch and one for breakfast. We enjoyed both our visits. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and explained the menu. I had the avocado and chicken salad for lunch which was good. My friend had the roti and... More
