We found our way to this new dinner presentation in St John and it was wonderful. A great combination of fine cooking, attentive service and a sincere desire to please that was wonderful to experience. As you look at all the options try this one you will love it.

Jake's is now open for dinner!! And it is fabulous, truly a memorable dinner experience. The food is outstanding, and the chef and his sous chef have created a wonderful menu, which, while small (about 5 appies and 5 mains) are well-thought out. What we really liked was the "Pick 3" dinner--one appy, one main, and one dessert for $50--an... More

Good Bloody Mary and good friendly service from Shannon. Island speed... More

We wanted to grab a quick breakfast so we stopped at Jakes as we heard it was good. It was great, but not fast. My wife & I had omelets & they were delicious. Fresh & wow a lot of cheese! Sit at the counter at the window & enjoy the local folks walking around Cruz Bay. Shannon did a... More

If you're a home fries lover, Jake's is your dream breakfast destination. On a hillside overlooking Cruz Bay, enjoy front row seats watching the hustle 'n bustle Caribbean-style below. They're open till 2 pm and serve breakfast or lunch whenever you want it.

Wife and I have been to Jakes many times and always enjoy the good food and friendly service. The hotcakes taste so good along with many other choices. Just tell them what you want and they'll deliver. If your looking for a nice way to start your day then Jake's is the place in Cruz Bay..
