“Fantastic little place with Friendly Owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We stopped in today for some sorbet and it was well worth the visit. This place is the real deal. All homemade sorbet with fresh ingredients and naturally made. We tried the coconut & lime and mango spice sorbets and they were wonderful. The owner was also a real treat. Very nice and informative and made us feel right at home. Definitely check out this gem of a place.

“Great selection of exotic fruit sorbet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

We visited Jaccar today due to having seen all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. We were out walking on our own and stumbled upon a sign to Jaccar by incident in Gallows Bay. We were not disappointed with the sorbet, although I would have preferred it to be a little less frozen (sorbet should be a tad moist). The wide selection of local fruits is astonishing and the owner is very willing to talk, explain and show from samples of the fruits he received the same morning.

“It was hot and this was perfect!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We had seen this little place a few times as we trudged to do various errands. This time we stopped in...oh my what a lovely find! The simple presentation of the wonderful gelato...clove and pepper was unique and spicy. There were truly from scratch homemade cookies, sorbets and gelato. Cannot wait to try some more of the uniqueness. This is very simple place. Small, quaint...and overlooking a parking lot...but it is charming in an island way. You just would not expect it.

“Excellent all natural sorbet/gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

While on St. Croix 2 years ago, we stumbled on Jaccar. The sorbet was very good and they had a few flavors. We just returned from another trip there and they have "expanded". Same store located in Gallows Bay, but many more flavors, also Gelato and smoothies. All the ingredients are local from what the owners told us. In between customers, they can be found zesting lemons, limes or whatever else they are about to make. The biggest problem is there are so many good flavors to choose from, sorbet and/or gelato. We ended up going back 3 times in a week, including departure day. One guy even filled his "frequent customer card", so he got a free 4 oz sorbet for the road. If you're visiting St. Croix, this is a must visit.
