I love pizza, and I’m sure most of you do too. Today’s post is for all of you pizza lovers out there.
We’re fortunate in that we have some pretty good pizza here on St. John. We even have a floating pizza boat for those of you who want to mix your love of pizza with your love of the water. Technically that spot is located behind an island near St. Thomas, but it’s close enough that you can easily visit it from Cruz Bay. Here is a complete rundown of where exactly you can find pizza on St. John.
The Tap Room:This is one of my family’s favorite lunch and dinner spots. The fact that they have a photo booth and two arcade games makes my son love it that much more! The Tap Room has great pizzas in addition to a full menu. Their pizzas are one size only – fyi. The Tap Room has ample indoor seating, so it’s a great spot on hot days thanks to the air conditioning, and it is also a good place to hang out on rainy days like today. Pizzas are $5 off during happy hour, which is 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily. That discount is for dining in orders only. One other nice thing about The Tap Room is that they have online ordering. The Tap Room is open seven days a week starting at 11 a.m.
Ronnie’s Pizza: For those of you who have been reading this blog from the start (a big thank you to all of you!!), you are probably aware that Ronnie’s left Cruz Bay last summer and reopened in Palm Plaza in December, which is located beside the Westin. (Click here to read an article we wrote about his new spot.) Ronnie’s serves more than just pies. He has a full menu of sandwiches, calzones and some of the best brownies I have ever had! Ronnie’s is open Monday through Saturday, and he offers delivery too.
Lovango Rum Bar: I always describe Lovango’s pizza to my island tour guests as pizza you would find in Italy, as opposed to New York City. They only sell one size, and if I am super hungry, I can eat almost the whole thing. So you will need to order more than one to feed your family. But that being said, it is unbelievably tasty! The atmosphere is great too, especially if you sit outside on their second floor deck. And starting this week, Lovango is now open for lunch Mondays through Fridays starting at 11:30 a.m. Lovango offers online ordering too.
Cafe Roma: Cafe Roma consistently received the title of “Best Italian Cuisine” with good reason. They, of course, have pizza, in addition to a full Italian menu. Cafe Roma is one of only a handful of restaurants in Cruz Bay that has air conditioning too. So this is a great spot to grab a bite, perhaps enjoy a glass of wine or two, and cool off while enjoying a nice meal. Cafe Roma even offers pizza to-go. Cafe Roma opens at 5 p.m. Sunday through Friday.
Starfish Market: Did you know that Starfish Market sells pizzas? Well if you didn’t, you do now! They’re a good size, and they are tasty! You can order them in advance too. Just reach out to Starfish at 340-779-4949 to order.
Sam & Jack’s: Ok, so Sam & Jack’s doesn’t sell pizza, but it sells the next best thing – pizza dough! Perhaps you want to make your own or toss one on the grill. Just stop by Sam & Jack’s and pick up some pizza dough. Sam & Jacks is open Monday through Saturday.
Shambles: I apologize to the folks over at Shambles for omitting you when this was originally published. Shambles is a super fun spot on Centerline Road right around mile two, and it even has a couple of swings at the bar! They have a full menu, including pizza. (They have a great rueben too!) Shambles opens at noon seven days a week.
Pizzabar in Paradise: Pizzabar is a little bit of a drive, but it is definitely worth it! It is located on Route 107, about a mile past the Aqua Bistro complex. Pizzabar is a cute little spot that serves Boston/New York-style pizzas. It offers live music every Friday night from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. There is even a nice little Friday night happy hour from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Slices are offered during happy hour, as well as $3 off all specialty cocktails, $3 Coors Lights and $4 Heineken, Stella and Corona. Pizzabar is open Tuesday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Salty Mongoose: Salty Mongoose has a fun little vibe in my opinion. It’s located across from the water in Coral Bay, so there is always a nice breeze to cool you off. They have bar seating, plus numerous tables in the courtyard. They are a pretty simple spot that just serves pizzas and salads, in addition to a full bar of course. Salty Mongoose is open for lunch and dinner Thursday through Tuesday.
On the Water
Pizza Pi: How does a delicious pizza on the water sound? Pretty amazing, I know! I absolutely love Pizza Pi. It’s an old sailboat that now serves pizza that’s located in Christmas Cove, a quiet little spot behind Great St. James. The pizza is great, and the view is one of the best. Be sure to add to this your list of spots to visit if you happen to be spending a day or even an afternoon on the water during your next St. John vacation.
