Good Food, New Friends & Happy Goats – St. John Part III

Two things we like to do when we travel are meeting people and eating yummy food. Last year when we vacationed in St. John, USVI we were blessed with both. Even though we stayed on the west end of the island we made a couple of visits to Coral Bay and other areas on the east end. On one of those trips to the east end, we stopped by Miss Lucy’s for brunch before snorkeling at nearby Salt Pond Bay.
This was my first sign that we were in the right place: tea, with ice.
It only got better after that. After eating cereal all week, both of our kids were happy to see pancakes.
Dude, did you use all the syrup?
Randy ordered Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon.What a plate of food. He was happy to see that.
Not an ordinary brunch compared to what we usually get at home. Yeah, I know, I should strive harder for this kinda stuff sweetie, but don’t hold your breath.
I ordered…well, I’m not sure what I ordered, but it was mighty tasty. It was some other version of Eggs Benedict I think.
I could’ve just eaten a plate of those potatoes. Yum.
The food was fabulous all on its own, but we enjoyed live music too.
This is Joe. He played, while another guy flanked the other side of the tree playing a variety of instruments.
And of course, my musician husband had to find out about the instruments and make some new friends. He’s cool and hip and friendly like that. I get to stand by, behind my lens, and act all coy and such.
Joe told Randy how his 1950’s Gibson L4 fell off the back of a truck while he was trekking in Mali 40 years ago. The instrument had to be rebuilt. Sure is sounding good now. Mighty pretty playin’ Joe.
I don’t have the faintest idea of what they might be talking about here.
I don’t even want to know…
Anyway, the music made my brunch taste even mo’ bettah. Thanks Joe.
Not only did we have tasty food, and lovely tunes, but chickens and goats. It’s like a veritable dining adventure at Miss Lucy’s.
We got in trouble for feeding the rooster from the table, but the kids gained entrance to the goat yard.
They were even given a bottle of milk to feed them, along with our leftovers.
Those were some pretty lucky goats.
It turned out to be the best brunch ever. Good food, new friends and happy goats to feed – can’t beat that.
Miss Lucy’s is located near Coral Bay, so if you’re ever in St. John, stop in, say hello and maybe feed a goat while you’re at it.

Do you have any great restaurants from vacation destinations worth mentioning? Or are there any interesting folks you’ve met while traveling? Any fun stories to share?
We go to a cool place in Marathon. It is called The Islander. It is an outdoor restaurant where you sit under thatched roofs and watch the gorgeous Florida Keys sunsets while you eat. There is place where the kids can feed beautiful Parrot fish. It’s special to us because it’s where we celebrated Bill’s dad’s 80th birthday.
Sea Spray on Elbow Cay, in the Abacos. the breakfast sandwhiches are divine. and then there is the cracked conch @ Capn’ Jacks. or the conch fritters @ Munchies (he has awesome fried chicken as well) or then there is Vernons Key Lime Pie. I gotta’ get back there just to eat!! Miss Lucy’s looks very cool.
Looks like a fun trip! Loved seeing your kids they’re darling!!
Oh I love St Johns! Went there on our honey moon. Looks like a great place to have brunch, I can almost feel the Caribbean breeze! Your pictures are so good! Love the ones of your kids!
It looks like ya’ll had a great time at Ms. Lucy’s 🙂 You have a gorgeous family darlin’ 🙂 Can’t wait to go to St. John’s now.
That looks like alot of fun! Cute kiddos! They look like they had a blast.
Oh how I wish I’d asked you where to go before we just made our trip. Those pancakes would have been right up Little Buddy’s alley. And feeding goats, he’d have just decided to stay a while.
Isn’t that place just gorgeous?!?
Okay I’m seriously jealous and want to go someday but I cant help but keep oogling over those potatoes! Any idea how something like that would be made? I have yet to try.
See, why can’t we have goats and chickens in our restaurants here? Having livestock trotting around just adds to the atmosphere!
Seriously good pictures there and I love how they really caught the moments. Glad y’all had such a great time! It’s beautiful there!!
