Cafe Fresco was just changing ownership last year when I visited St Croix and it was a few weeks away from opening so I didn't get a chance to visit. I finally made it back on island last week and stopped in to check it out! I was not disappointed!!! Actually went back several times. The food is fresh and fabulous! Had the turkey salad - it was huge - try the passion fruit dressing! Loved the seasonings and the local avocado. Don't miss the pitkas, chicken soup and blueberry pancakes! Our friend had the curried chicken wrap which was also a very generous portion - very tasty! Damon is the consummate server - polite and efficient - he's there to converse if you'd like or will be unobtrusive if you prefer. Yonka works magic in that tiny kitchen and is the creative force with the menu offerings!

While walking downtown Christianstead found this lovely cafe tucked away in a courtyard. Had the special for the day, turkey avocado salad and pitka. Salad came out and I was confused at first because It came out and was in a bowl the size u would serve family style. Was so huge yet tasted so awesome I managed to eat the whole thing. Others had the creamy onion soup and we even asked for the recipe to take home. The owners run this little gem and could not be friendlier. Everything here was made from scratch to order and you could tell the difference!

This adorable little cafe is in a small courtyard off King Street in St. Croix. We found this place after days of mediocre food and we were craving for something FRESH. This place did not disappoint! Our group tried everything, from the salads to the wraps, and we even came back for breakfast the next morning to have blueberry pancakes, croissant sandwiches and hot, freshly baked muffins and scones. EVERYTHING on the menu was delicious and made fresh, right then. The owners, Damon and Yanka, are very nice and run the cafe with Damon waiting tables and Yanka preparing the food. This restaurant was a great find, a gem! Next time I am in St. Croix this will be the first stop I will make for a meal. :)

Prepare to be amazed the first time you find yourself experiencing Cafe Fresco. A tropical old-world courtyard with lush plants and patio fountains surrounds you while your taste buds are overwhelmed with the freshest, healthiest, and most economically friendly dishes this husband and wife team can dream and serve up. Like them on Facebook to see the daily specials.

Great little patio place, friendly owners, imaginative & tasey breakfasts/lunch & specials...great soups ranging from a cold Bulgarian soup to very hearty clam chowder...nice portions, some great heart healthy dishes (salads, salmon dishes/sandwiches), pitka's & nice desserts...oh yeah, the pitka's..take some filo/pastry dough & get imaginative with fillings, and you have a pitka....Cafe Fresco is good to the taste buds & palate, and easy on the wallet...AND they will deliver to the immediate downtown area...
