Good coffee and yummy pastries. They had a great looking curry chicken salad, but we didn't try it as we were off to the beach. Friendly service too :)

Located in Mongoose Junction this is the best deli St John has to offer. Great stop for breakfast or a sandwich to take to the beach.
Try out the sweets and wonderful breads.

We've seem this little spot before and probably stopped in for cold water or such, but this time we were looking for a lunch stop. We were salty and dirty from beach hopping and looking for ease. For the mere fact that this store is heavily air conditioned, it should be a stopping point for a few minutes in the heat. Inside you'll find a deli counter with sandwiches, salads, and soups made to order. Coolers full of drinks, candy bars, and extra snacks. Also at the counter are a large selection of cold salads and pizzas that you can bundle up to take home. We did both. We ordered two sandwiches (a tuna and a portobello) and a greek salad, then grabbed 4 containers of cold salads to take home to add to our dinner. The crab salad was good but made with fake krab and the cucumber salad was very refreshing. We also got a broccoli salad and the curry chicken. Both of these were great. This cool spot (literally) was a great find we will be hitting up again on our next visit.

We stopped by twice on our visit this May.The first time was for some great chicken salad for our villa.The small was big enough to make 4 sandwiches. Perfect. The next time was on a Sunday when Baked in the Sun and Sam &Jacks was closed. BUSY! Understandable as they were the only deli/to go open. I ordered one sandwich that took over half hour to make. I understand island time etc but that was a little extreme.

Husband and I stopped this trip and got a container of chicken curry to make sandwiches. I can not speak about friendliness as I didnt go in because they were so packed...but the curry was good. We enjoyed our sandwiches.
