Beans, Bytes, and Websites – Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas

Overall Shop rating: 5 Nadas
My interest in donuts is not purely domestic. I am interested in the importance and commonality of the donut internationally. I recently had an opportunity to visit my friend and fellow donut lover, Jennifer Allen. She is working on an Ocean Classroom Schooner currently anchored in Saint Thomas, a US Virgin Island in the Caribbean. She and I had a few days to explore the islands of Saint Thomas and Saint John, and we searched for donuts. Our findings came up short because we kept getting distracted by crystal clear water and long white sand beaches. We did find a couple of places that sold donuts but they were closed on Sundays… I like places that are not all about business. I like it when they take time off to enjoy life. Life is not all about working and making donuts, it’s about enjoying friendship and good donuts.

Vibe of Shop: 5 Nadas
I agree you may be thinking: “This is not a donut shop,” but it is the only place I found that was open and served donuts. That being said, this is one of the coolest coffee shops I have ever seen. The vibe of the building was great! The walls were old brick and rock and the layout was amazing, from the arch entry way to the comfortable couches and tables for lounging. Jenn and I visited here a couple times.

Outside Appearance: 5 Nadas
It may be a little bit of a challenge to find this place because it is nestled in a cute little alley way. It has a nice patio area with tables right out in front of the arch doorway.

Hours: I forgot to check, but I assume sometime from 6am to 7pm.

Service: 5 Nadas
The lady working reminded me of my mom. She was super friendly and a hard worker. If you go there, give her a big tip. She deserves it.

Taste of Glaze Donut: 4.5 Nadas
To tell the truth, I didn’t try a glaze donut because they didn’t have a raised glaze.

Blueberry Donut? No. But, beggars can’t be choosers.

Coffee: 5 Nadas
This was the best espresso drink I found on the islands.

Special: This is a great place to sit and play cribbage, or read a book. Take your time and enjoy!

I'm sorry that this map is not very helpful. The shop wouldn't come up on google maps, so just go to this spot near the Vendor's Market and search the alleys!
