Hello everyone and happy Monday! We have some good news to share with those of you who will be traveling to St. John soon … Hibiscus Cafe at the airport on St. Thomas has reopened, and it looks great!
Now let’s be honest. the St. Thomas airport isn’t the most desirable airport to spend time at due to its very limited options in terms of dining and shopping. The situation has been pretty bad since the 2017 hurricanes when the airport sustained significant damage. Since then, only a few food kiosks and a makeshift bar have been open. Well that all recently changed.
Hibiscus Cafe is open and features a full bar, grill area, and a grab and go section of prepared foods. It’s been renovated from top to bottom, and it looks very nice. Check out a few pics:
The small book store and gift shop remain closed. There is a pop-up retail area in the center of the airport waiting lounge. The restrooms are also being renovated. The men’s room is currently closed in the waiting area; men must use the restroom in the Spirit waiting area. The women’s room in the main area remains open.
“News” you can use today, folks! Have a great one!

They make a surprisingly good painkiller.
This is a nice addition!
I have wondered why there isn’t a water fountain in the waiting area.
The cynical part of me says because “somebody” would rather make money selling drinks than offering free water for the thirsty.
Water might not be potable.
At one time there was a water fountain in there, so I would think that its feasible to do so again.
Yes, I think you are right. And g-r-r-r-r, I hate plastic ‘disposable’ water bottles!! Even a ‘filling station’ where you could refill your own bottle would be such a wonderful addition.
You had me at “full bar” LOL!
Any news on the duty free liquor store at the airport? I really miss the convenience of picking up a bottle of gin on arrival
I like how you roll Rose!!!
I was there a few days ago and asked about it-they will not be rebuilding it. It was perfect to provision a few bottles on the way in. Alas-no more.
Food was never very good, hope that improves, but the painkillers, as JHen mentioned, were very good. Maybe it is due to the fact most people are coming off a 7 day or more bender!!
We were there Saturday. It was nice to see it back. We had good food and drinks. And the folks there were very friendly.
Does anyone know if the liquor store is open?
