The nice thing is this shop is within easy walking distance of the Sunsail and Moorings Base and they have a large selection of cheeses and lunch meats and fresh bread. We had a loaf of banana nut bread...great for breakfast with some butter and coffee.

We had heard good things about this place so decided to walk over from the Moorings base. Sandwiches were reasonable and delicious, and pastries were unbelievably good (and also well-priced). Will make this a regular stop on future trips!

Thank you for your positive review. It is pleasant to hear that you found our baked goods delicious and "well-priced". We look forward to future visits when vacationing in the BVI. At that time you could provision some of our artisanal breads, European cheeses, pâtés, cold cuts and "well-priced" French wines. More

We stopped in here after a busy morning to grab some snacks and lunch for me (since I have celiac and couldn't eat at a snackstand with the others.) I enjoyed a fabulous salad while the kids and husband enjoyed bakery treats. Everyone was happy with the food, relaxing atmosphere, enjoyed by locals and travelers alike. Super friendly service.

We took a trip with Moorings and stumbled on to this local treasure. Great snack, cheap, and delicious. You've probably already dumped A ton on your trip, and this place was fantastic, and a really fun upstairs atmosphere.

The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars (relative to Tortola in scale) is that the place is closed often. I always try and swing through and grab lunch and provisions when possible but more times than not I find it to be closed....in the middle of the day... on any given day of the week....

Thank you Jim B for your comments. Our operation hours are posted on the window and we've kept those since opening day. Mon-Fri 8:00AM to 6:00PM; Sat 8:00AM to 3:00PM. We close on Sundays. Unless it's a bank holiday, we are here, especially for lunch! Signs around the Deli and on the door specify when closed for local bank holidays.... More

The lunch and sandwiches are great!! The only place in which you can get such fine products as you can do in EU. The owner makes the cherry on the top being such a helpful and nice person! I hope to be still in the client database.

As a foodie, this was the perfect spot for breakfast. They have interesting stuff for sale (foodies would understand), and good variety of cheeses, meats, and pastries. We had breakfast and enjoyed our omelettes and eggs benedict (we've had better, but they did a great job). We'd return for sure.

We got take out from here. Pastries for our boating trip. We got chocolate and almond croissants, and apple torte. They were as good or better than any I have had worldwide. they open at 8, which seems very late for a bakery, and the line was long, and at opening they are understaffed.

Thank you for your review and feedback. We are pleased to know you enjoyed our pastries. Our bakery does open very early to have baked goods ready for the opening of various restaurants on the island. The Deli, as an eatery, opens later, to have time for set up.
