If you want a deli sandwich not a restaurant sandwich, go here! Their turkey sandwich was just as good as a deli in California. On third level of the market place shopping center...3/4 mile from dock or take a safari. Worth the walk! ! You can split it, enough for 2. Good way to cool off they have AC.

This is definitely a place to take out from. But the salads and sandwiches are good - definitely recommend it.

Recently visited this deli and was very impressed with the quality and quantity of the food. Very clean and bright establishment with excellent service. We ordered their "homemade" chips which were awesome. We bought two more bags to take back to the villa. Definitely will return and highly recommend.

Love the deli!! Awesome sandwiches and food. Be advised, though, the sandwiches are HUGE, so plan accordingly or you could end up having to throw it out.

Out of the way and all the way up the stairs above Starfish Market is the best place on St. John to get freshly prepared food, amazing customer service and some of the best bakery items on the island (try the eclairs!). If you are local like us or visiting - it is worth the time and tastebuds to stop!... More

We had seen this deli highly rated before we came and decided to give it a try. The food is good. We ended up getting food here several times. We got breakfast here once, sandwiches for picnic lunches several times and we took back dinner to our villa once and warmed it up. Food good and not too expensive.

This place is amazing and I wish I would have come in earlier in my trip because I would have stopped in several times. I will definitely be back! They have an amazing selection of sandwiches made fresh and custom to your tastes. Part of what made it a favorite is the selection of goodies they had available in addition... More

Sandwiches come loaded up with high quality ingredients. Perfect to grab for lunch at the beach. There are salad options for gluten free diets and even some gluten free baked goods.
