Amazing coffee tucked inside a cute little bookstore. We got off the 630a ferry and drove straight to what seemed like the only coffee shop on the island. Highly recommend!

Great coffee! We go year after year and it is always our first stop for coffee and a book before we hit the beach! Awesome staff both Jamie and Nancy always make our coffee just the way we like it!! And even remember what we...get!More

This coffee shop is located in the book store right inside the Marketplace before you enter the grocery store. There are not many coffee shops open in the Cruz Bay area presently, so this was a frequent stop on our recent trip.

We came here to look for some books and really enjoyed the place. All of the books are mismatched, but it made it kinda fun and interesting to look through them. We ended up getting a latte, and it was great.

The people are even nicer. Our family of four went to see Nancy for coffees and new books every morning. She remembered our orders by day three, on day 7 - our last day- she wasn't there but made sure our regular order was ready...and waiting for us when we got there!!!!!!!! Wonderful coffee, great location, the best book inventory around and simply the nicest people on an island full of nice people. We'll be talking about the island the snorkeling and Nancy's coffee till we return next year. We'll be talking about Nancy's welcoming friendliness long after that. Thanks Nancy for your great beach advice, perfect coffees and your kindness to us tourists.More

Such amazing iced coffee. A really unique flavor and reasonably priced, especially for St. John. It was fun to browse the titles on the shelves while your coffee was prepared; I definitely came back again and again!

I would have NEVER come across this place if a hotel staff member hadn't let me know about it! I was in need for a GOOD coffee drink and hasn't seen ANY coffee shops around, so I asked! It is in the Marketplace on the...1st floor and you would NEVER know there was a cafe inside! It is a small book store from the outside view but the cafe is AMAZING - I bought three bags of various coffee beans they had. I got the Iced Vietnemese ---- To Die For!! Definitely a local's place! My only regret is that I didn't find this sooner! went three days in a row!!More
