Just want to put the word out about Polly's at the pier in F'sted. Great little spot...... coffee, wraps, soups, salads, smoothies and my favorite Armstrongs Ice Cream. I have been several times and been completely satisfied. There is also Internet. I believe they are open 7am to 7pm.

Fabulous people!
Fabulous coffees!
Fabulous place!
We don't have many "regular" spots we go to, but this is definitely one of them!

I went! Very nice place, great people. The veggie burger was AWESOME! Plus, they have turkey bacon and turkey sausage which i've never found in any restaurant here. Will be back!

The place is good, but will they ever get their beer taps running?

Anybody know what they are putting in at the old Burger King in Sunny Isle?

I am the brewer for Polly's, so I feel qualified to answer the beer question:

The beer was ready last Saturday, but we didn't want to sell it to tourists from the cruise ship, we wanted to wait until Monday to make sure we have some for locals. I was checking on the temperature Monday and noticed that my CO2 was empty! I just filled it 4 days earlier, so I have a leak I need to fix. The only place I have found that fills CO2 is Carib Supply on Hess Road, and they take 4-5 days to fill my small tank. :S If anyone knows of another place on St. Croix that fills CO2 bottles, please let me know!

If I can get my CO2 today, the beer will be flowing tomorrow night.:-)

I've heard from a few people that it will be a Taco Bell...may just be wishful thinking.

I heard from a Sunny Isle employee that it's going to be an IHOP. Which is remarkable since the one on STT closed after only a few months.

CO2 leak is fixed, and the beer is now flowing at Polly's. Right now there are two different types of Pale Ale on tap, please stop by and give it a try. I plan on always having Polly's Pale Ale on tap, with "whatever I feel like making" or special requests on the other tap.

Polly's needs some more chairs and couches and stuff. Places to sit and hang out in and stay longer and buy more coffee. Was a little disappointed at the lack of seating in general and nothing comfty. I can only sit in a barstool for so long before my old back starts to creak.

Otherwise the coffee was excellent.

Glad to hear the Polly's Pale Ale is ready. I had a taste last week and loved it. I will be in later today for a full glass.

Nice clean place, great spot, friendly people, BUT they want $8.50 for a grilled cheese + $2 if you want bacon on it...oh wait...made with smoked gouda.... I went there to find a loaf of Jewels bread and they dont sell it, they just use it for their grilled cheese. lol I could make 20 grilled cheese sandwiches for 8.50... Guess ill be saving Polly's for those special grilled cheese occasions 🙂

Next to try...the pale ale!! 🙂

Yes you could make the 20 at home. but the next time you make 1, put the money in a jar that they pay for a cook, waitress, rent, WAPA, insurance, furnishings, etc - etc - etc.
Yes food is higher in ant restaurant than you could prepare at home. What should be considered is how high are they then another restaurant.

I have to agree with Cory.

Went to Polly's on Saturday with three friends. I have been craving a tap beer for a couple of weeks now. We each bought one and paid $6.00 per beer!!! We thought at first it was a mistake, $6.00 for tap???

We were hungry but nobody wanted to pay $9.50 for a wrap so we left.

We ended up going to "LA CAFE" which is normally good food. We paid $83.00 for mediocre 3 cheeseburgers w/ bacon, 1 appetizer, 3 dirty bananas (which were excellent by the way) and a couple of cokes.

I can't say I have been on island for a long time but, were we paying cruise ship prices for these places? Do we need a "local" I.D. card to avoid the higher cruise ship prices? How do these places stay in business?

I also agree with Terry that if you want to go out, you need to be willing to pay for "a cook, waitress, rent, WAPA, insurance, furnishings, etc - etc - etc". Just please don't make me pay for it on one bill!!!
