Looking for a good St John breakfast spot? You've found it. Had Free wifi which was awesome for making people back home jealous, and the food was FIRE! Super cheap, view of the area from second story window we ate at and good food. I would come here every time.

Went to Jakes this morning looking for a different breakfast place. The parking is horrible. There were people in the lot trying to direct traffic but it was a pain. The views from the restaurant are awesome and the staff seemed very nice although I never once got a drink refill. I ordered eggs over medium and my eggs were... More

A surprising find for breakfast in a local neighborhood away from the busy thoroughfare of Cruz Bay. The French toast is a must try-tasting just like cinnamon rolls!

An unsuccessful attempt to find another restaurant because I had no GPS service on my phone, led us to stumble upon Jake's. What a happy surprise! We sat at the open window area that offers nice ocean views off in the distance. We both ordered the Philly steak sandwich and it was perfect. Good service, too. I love unexpected serendipitous...

We went for breakfast at Jake's. For breakfast we had veg omelette, french toast, homemade jelly and pancakes. The food was warm and delicious ! The lady who served our food was gracious and efficient. The ambience is very casual and the view of Cruz bay is beauuutiful ! Can't wait to go there again on our next visit.

We went to Jake's for breakfast when we took a day trip to St John and although it was a bit off the main drag it was totally worth it. This was the best omelette I have ever had. The chef cut all the veggies up very small and had it cooked and seasoned perfectly. It makes me wish I... More

This place is delicious. A little off the tourist path but totally worth it. Wonderful view and awesome blueberry pancakes!

Having read reviews about Jake's, we happened upon it one morning, and so glad we did! We sat at the bar facing town(it is on the second floor), fun open views, and a super meal! I had the cinnamon French toast, which was delicious, the bacon crisp, great coffee, yum! My husband had a veggie omelet which was more like... More

Get the silver dollar pancakes. My husband loved that they really are silver dollar size and very good too. I had the egg, bacon and cheese sandwich which was also good. This is a great place to grab breakfast when you want to get an early start. They open at 7:30 so you can get on the trail early. The... More
