The coffee isn't bad. They do not have WiFi and do not even allow laptops. Somewhat rude service but that's the norm in St Thomas.

There is nothing really special about this place...they sell coffee and pastries and it's on the waterfront...nothing romantic, historic, nor quaint. Coffee was good. However, I wished they were a little more friendly behind the counter...they didn't particularly seem happy to be there serving customers!

At the bottom of the "99" steps and a short walk through the morass of jewelry shops to the harbor, R&J's is a small luncheonette with maybe 6 small tables, a beverage cooler, and a walk-up counter. This is self-service and mostly occupied by cruise ship passengers waiting to be picked up by shuttle boat across the busy street. We... More

I love this place! The service is amazing and they get to know you. I love getting there dumb bread. I have also tried the blueberry crumb cake and donuts which were also awesome. If you want good a good breakfast in the Virgin Islands, go here.

We took the ferry over to St. Thomas for the day (from St. John) and he really wanted an espresso. This place was right across from the ferry so we decided to stop and were not disappointed. The prices were reasonable. He enjoyed his Americano and I enjoyed my Chai Tea Latte. My daughter chose a donut and enjoyed that... More

this was actually the meeting place for the water taxi that takes you back to the cruise ship docks. We tried a frozen mocha chino drink. It was refreshing on a hot day. It was a nice break before crossing the street to get the water taxi. More convenient than a must try.

The coffee is OK but average. There are "don't do this" signs everywhere and the staff are obviously fed up with tourists. Skip this place and get your coffee at Pasta Go-Go close by instead

If I lived here, I would be a regular. The guy behind the counter wasn't super friendly, but we could deal with that since the chai latte and mocha were great!

We went to buy coffe and use the bathroom and a white man treated us very mean. We ended up leaving without buying anything. We have went to great places where people treat you great. I dont recommend this place at all.

When we were there in the middle of the day, it was closed. Maybe it's a seasonal thing that is only open in the Summer, but that hardly makes sense. There were tourists all around, but the doors were closed. The only reason I am posting this is in case you think you're going to be able to go here,... More
