“great sandwiches”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

While staying on St. John with family and friends, we had sandwiches twice at Deli Grotto. Both times were delicious! The panini's were favorites by all, although the tuna salad was also great. We, also, bought their whole grain bread several times and used it at our condo for toast and sandwiches we prepared ourselves. It is really, really good!

“great sandwich shop”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

A local informed us of this place for a quick bite to eat before boarding our ferry back to St Thomas. The sandwich was very fresh and I was more than pleased with the service. The price for my and my wives sandwich was very reasonable and I didn't feel like we were overpaying because there was nothing else. I recommend anyone try this place if ever in St John.

“Fabulous french toast for breakfast”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I highly recommend going here for breakfast. We stayed in a villa, so we had breakfast there on most mornings, but our breakfast at Deli Grotto one morning was definitely worth it. The French toast is made with a dense, grainy bread, and was fantastic and reasonably priced. There are a few indoor tables. Coffee was good (and $1 cheaper than Sam & Jack’s coffee, the same size). They make specialty coffee drinks (lattes, etc.) as well. I tried some of the baked goods, including the famous coconut chocolate bars; as someone who likes to bake, I found them to be good, but not exceptional. We did not try to sandwiches.

“Quick sandwiches, pastries, smoothies, and coffee”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Reasonably priced and they will wrap to go if you want to take it to a beach/hike.
Bought a bunch of "Blind Betty's" sauces there--about the only locally made seasonings on St John.
