is located 3.7 miles east of the Moravian Church on Route 10.
Vie’s Snack Shop
is open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Snacks
include conch fritters, garlic chicken, johnny cakes, island style
beef patty and home made pineapple and coconut tarts. Sodas, beer
and other cold drinks are also available.
Vie’s is truly one of the few really local places left on
St. John, not only in its cuisine, but in its friendly, fun, old-time
Virgin Islands ambiance. A large boxwood tree emits a delightful
aroma when the tree flowers late in the year. Ask Vie about other
local flora such as tamarind and calabash trees. And there’s
always the animals, birds enjoying the bird feeder, chickens scurrying
about, goats and perhaps you’ll see a cat or two at the Bush
Cat Snack Shack.
The beautiful sand beach across the road
from Vie’s is privately
owned by Vie’s family, (the Sewers) and a small admission
fee is charged to enter the beach by land. A bit further east is
About a quarter mile east from Vie’s Snack Shop is a small
private beach also owned by Vie’s family, which is presently
available for use by the public free of charge.
