you looking for a good hearty breakfast in cruz bay, climb the steps to jakes. don't expect speed of light service, but really good, fresh, plentiful breakfasts. homemade jams. need a bloody mary or mimosa, this is your place. corned beef hash, banana pancakes, even just the bacon and eggs taste special. went back 3 times in 7 days.

What we really liked was the "Pick 3" dinner--one appy, one main, and one dessert for $50--an... More

As annual visitors this has always been a consistent morning meal. The just started serving dinner with a former chef from Caneel Bay, will have to try. Good Bloody Mary and good friendly service from Shannon. Island speed... More
