When you sell only one thing and you've survived a fire and have become a Cruz Bay institution, well...it's impressive. Hercules is a locally owned eatery serving the best pates on St. John. Good folks, yummy pates and a must when visiting Love City.

Consistently terrific! Have been eating these pates for years - same great taste year in and year out. Great for a snack or to pack for the beach. Get there early before they sell out!

Totally local place but step in and order. Eat it there or carry out. Local Caribbean dishes and drinks. You can’t beat the value. Not big on looks but it’s clean and great food. Can’t beat the prices.. Local food

If you want a tasty treat, this place is worth stopping by a few times during the day. The saltfish pate’ is incredible, throw in an ice cold Ting and it’s one of the best things the island has to offer!!

When you see someone walking to the early ferry with a grease stained paper bag, you know they have pate from Hercules. Fry bread filled with beef, chicken, goat, fish, conch, whelks, or whatever he has available is a tasty change up. My daughters go...More

When you think of Pate', you think of French cuisine and liver. This is NOT that kind of pate'! It is more like an empanada-type dish but oh, so good. Hercules Pate' is open at 5 a.m. to feed the ferry workers or perhaps the...More

Enjoyed the beef and saltfish, and some johnnycakes. Not sure what kind of fish exactly, but it was appropriately fishy- and salty-tasting, and delicious. Open at 5am for locals heading to the ferry for work or hungover/lost tourists. We were there after the presumed morning...More
