This little shop is run by some of the nicest people ever. Plus their gelato is absolutely the best I've had. A huge assortment of quality all-natural flavors. Everything is organic-even the plastic cups are made from corn.

Moved to the island just a year ago, and this is one of our regular weekly places to visit. Every week there are new awesome gelatos and sorberts. All made of natural items, many local and all sooooo good. Do not miss out on this local experience .

At first you think it's a bit pricey, but this gelato is worth every penny! It ranks with the best that you have ever had. Many of the flavors are unique because of their fresh island ingredients. Don't miss this!

We stopped by twice! I think we would've stopped by more times, but unfortunately we found this place with only about a day or two left on our trip. Jacky gave us the whole story behind his products which are all organic and 100% biodegradable (no recycling available on St. Croix). The best part is that it tastes AMAZING! Got... More

Jaccar is not easy to find, but once you find it, you will keep going back again and again. Jackie and Carol make their own gelatos and sorbets from all natural ingredients. Their desserts are fresh frozen and ever so tasty. Several tables and chairs are provided on the covered walkway outside the store for one to enjoy their treat... More

There just isn't anything like this place. Definitely worth a visit. Jaccar (Jacky + Carol) is a tiny shop with comfortable seating out front. They offer an amazing assortment of flavors in gelato and sorbet -- many (like baobab) not available anywhere else. Carol also bakes excellent cookies. They have a 100% commitment to organic food and compostable packaging. Jackie... More

I stopped here for the first time the week of Labor Day. I had read all about this place on TripAdvisor previously and I saw an ad in a magazine promoting their push-pops.

The sorbets and gelatos are very good. Not the best I've ever had, but the flavor can not be beat. They have a great balance of flavor, especially with the island flavors.
