“Great location, very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Stopped here to pickup sandwiches to take for our Reef Bay Trail hike. The Trunk Bay was a fantastic choice, and it kept well for several hours until we ate at the Petroglyphs. A little pricey, but the sandwiches are large and filling, handmade with lots of flavor.

“Generous sanwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

We had lunch here before hiking to the beach. The sandwiches are generously overstuffed and very good. If you want a light lunch, share something with a friend! The pain is looked great too!

“Deli Grotto - A Great Breakfast & Lunch Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

We were so happy to come upon Deli Grotto during our stay. We went twice, during our 3-day stay, once for lunch and then for breakfast too. Has a great variety of things to eat there (or in their outside courtyard area which was nice) or take with you to the beaches. While St.John is generally expensive, we found the prices here very reasonable. They had some to-die-for desserts! I think it was called a "Jumbie" (choc, coconut, graham cracker crust)...SOOO GOOD! Will definitely return here when we return to St. John again.

“The best for sandwiches, and must try the coconut chocolate bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

This deli has become our takeout standby whenever we are lucky enough to get to St. John. Excellent sandwiches and paninis, and this time we got hooked on a to-die-for chocolate thing covered with a thick layer of coconut, which is sold behind the counter. There were 4 of us and one was enough to put us all into an insulin coma, which was so well worth it that we did it again the next day. Tip: Don't be in a hurry for your order; they never seem to be in a hurry to get it to you.

“Stopped to grab a coffee. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

I need patience and remember what island time is. Waited awhile while the cashier jabbered on with another customer for 10 min. Ordered a mocha latte, pretty good and cost was decent.

Dear Cassy B, We apologize for the delay in the line. Because delays of that length of time are significant, the employees specifically remember the occasion; an over zealous sales person and a polite employee. Please revisit, it will not happen again. Keep warm up there. Warm Caribbean regards from beautiful St. John. The Deli Grotto staff.
