Hawaiian Restaurant
“The Longboard serves great specialty drinks to sip at the bar while watching old surfing videos. Our favorite is The Cane Garden. These folks were generous after Hurricane Irma and supplied hot meals for the community. We love to support them and we make up reasons to go to Cruz Bay to eat their wonderful food.”

“Pickles is like the community center of Coral Bay. They open early. They have breakfast. It’s a deli. They make sandwiches and salads and wraps you can take to the beach. They sell beer. There is often some kind of community event going on outside. They are only open for breakfast and lunch EXCEPT on Thursday when they stay open late. Thursday is open-mic music night and it is easily the most attended event in Coral Bay. Cars line the streets. I’m pretty sure they serve food at music night, too. ”
