Jake's has just started offering dinner, made by two fabulous chefs who recently were with Caneel Bay Resort. We did the $50 fixed price 3 course dinner. What a treat! Every course was delicious. Fried shrimp. Scallop with coconut polenta. Steak frites. Pork Belly. Bananas Foster. Chocolate bread pudding. The service was friendly and gracious. The atmosphere the best of... More

As they stay at Jake's big deal as so many other places turn their staff so often. Same great food every time. Now they are open for dinner. Hidden secret too. As... More

Stopped here for a mid morning breakfast and were not disappointed. Basic breakfast fare served in a cool atmosphere overlooking Cruz Bay. As annual visitors this has always been a consistent morning meal. The just started serving dinner with a former chef from Caneel Bay, will have to try. Good Bloody Mary and good friendly service from Shannon. Island speed... More

We wanted to grab a quick breakfast so we stopped at Jakes as we heard it was good. It was great, but not fast. My wife & I had omelets & they were delicious. Fresh & wow a lot of cheese! Sit at the counter at the window & enjoy the local folks walking around Cruz Bay. Shannon did a... More

If you're a home fries lover, Jake's is your dream breakfast destination. On a hillside overlooking Cruz Bay, enjoy front row seats watching the hustle 'n bustle Caribbean-style below. They're open till 2 pm and serve breakfast or lunch whenever you want it.

Came for breakfast but could order breakfast or lunch all day! Love that! We had the rancher omelet and the hungry man steak and eggs! The breakfast potatoes(homefries) are spicy and soooo good! When I asked if they had any spiked coffee drinks, she told me no, not on the menu but she was creative and made me one! Thank... More

Wife and I have been to Jakes many times and always enjoy the good food and friendly service. The hotcakes taste so good along with many other choices. Just tell them what you want and they'll deliver. If your looking for a nice way to start your day then Jake's is the place in Cruz Bay..

A few years ago, my wife and I ate here based on a recommendation from a friend. In August we decided to have breakfast there on this trip. We were not disappointed. Any time a cook can make my sunny-side up eggs perfectly, deserves my kudos. The second floor location is also a great place to eat. You can look... More

Very convenient upon arrival to the island. A few parking spaces are available. Coffee was strong and really to our liking. We normally drink Starbucks black ice coffee. Home fries have great flavor. We ordered gramie's favorite omelet and the egg and cheese sandwich in wheat. Both were very delicious and service was friendly and fast. Reasonably priced for what... More
