Very cute little spot to grab a bite. There are only six tables set outside between shops but getting a table does't seem to be much of a problem as people come and go. The food was very good and reasonably priced for St. John....More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Sun Dog Cafe. Food was fresh, we lived the jerk chicken soft tacos and white pizza salad. Painkillers were delicious too with fresh nutmeg! Our server was friendly, attentive, wonderful. Our kids loved their kid meals. Nice breeze...More

It is inside Mongoose Junction with shade from the shopping center and umbrellas - so essentially outside eating. It has a wide range of casual dishes. Ate here last year as well - quality also good then.

Sun Dog Cafe is a great casual dining option, and home to the Gecko Gazebo, our open air bar overlooking the gracious center courtyard of Mongoose Junction. A New York Times Travel and Leisure Pick for St. John, we serve lunch daily, dinner on weekdays, and brunch on Sunday. Don't Miss the Sunday Night Jam, from 6 to pm, a great musical event with local and visiting talent. Welcome!
