Food scene
Great mimosas made with local juices. Brian loves the gringo arepa and the pancakes and biscuits and gravy can be ordered in half portions. I love the chicken littles and the tripoleta. The space quite tight but worth a visit for breakfast.

Get the half chicken(obviously) but also try their pork if it is available. Oooh and the stewed chicken. I love their cruzan stuffing as well. It is cash only but there is an atm on site.

Try their Mac and cheese as a sharing starter or side dish but definitely save space for rum cake- it is the best on island. So buttery, rich and good! They also have a great Saturday a la carte brunch. Very interesting use of local ingredients. We always make reservations, because it is quite small. They have a great cocktail menu too, with epic specials.

This is the closest restaurant to us. Everybody loves the lobster, but the highlight for me is their Lime In Da Coconut cocktail. Yum! We go here for date nights or special occasions, not just a casual Friday.

Love love love this new island gem. Get the compressor watermelon salad and calamari to share with any of the cocktails they have. We always make reservations, even for a late lunch. Sunday brunch is always crazy busy. This is generally not a quick lunch, so make sure you have time.

I love this hidden character filled house with the most delicious fresh lunch options. Brian loves the croque madame, and I love everything on the menu. It is cash only. This is not a quick bite, but rather a slow and leisurely affair.

This is an STX institution (and right around the corner from us...) where else can you have a (strong) cocktail in a lean to next to a working gas station under a chandelier? Look out for their community focused charity events, live music or just the chef who pulls up a gas grill. Yes, right next to the pumps... Hint- maybe ask for your first drink to be ’stateside’.

This is a beautiful property with historical ruins that is open to the public. Walk around the calm gardens and labyrinth. It is beautiful.

It is a hoot! Apparently they also serve a good burger, but we haven’t tried it yet. Don’t leave without trying the mama wanna.
