Northside Grind Carries Creative Grab ’N Go Salads

Northside Grind is currently spotlighting chef-inspired salads in the “grab ’n go” cooler.

Written by Coconut Post

Whether you’re in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands as a visitor, a local — or always in spirit — Coconut Post keeps you posted on fun-filled news ’n views. Published monthly by Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas, we’re focused on sharing our people, places, and fun things happening in paradise.

Eating healthier in the New Year has been made easier, thanks to the terrific team at Northside Grind coffee shop.

Conveniently located on the roundabout at Flamboyan Resort, a distinctive white picket fence surrounds this charming tropical cottage. On the fence you’ll notice a signature sign as well as multiple menu displays.

Be sure to check out the selection of flavorful Smoothies, made-to-order from the freshest ingredients. Choices include Green Protein, Rise and Grind, Blueberry and Oats — and more. You also are welcome to build your own beverage with any variety of fruits on hand.

All smoothies are made with almond milk. If you prefer, customize your Smoothie with coconut milk, oat milk acai or other juices. What a great way to start the day! Smoothie bowls are available, too.

At lunchtime, did you know you can have any sandwich or wrap on the menu made as a large garden salad? It’s a terrific “no-extra-charge” option — ideal for those of us trying to cut down on our daily bread intake.

Another health-oriented offering at Northside Grind is Virgin Leaf Kombucha. Available in several flavors, the sparkling probiotic teas are consciously crafted and locally made with real organic fruit right here in the U.S. Virgin Islands. According to promotional materials, the product is a “…refreshing salute to Caribbean life.”

The latest additions to taste-tempting choices at Northside Grind are creative chef-inspired “grab ’n go” salads. Take a look in the cooler and you’ll see ever-changing culinary artistry such as Shrimp Thai Peanut Noodle Salad, or Bowtie Pasta Salad with Pesto, Fresh Lemon and Vegetables. The Fruit Parfait is a favorite — and don’t miss Northside Grind’s classic Potato Salad, too.

Said co-owner Trish Dahl, “A well-known local chef works with us every week to create these new salads.”

Northside Grind is open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. seven days a week.

The Scandinavian country of Denmark acquired St. Thomas in 1660, St. John in 1718, and St. Croix in 1733. In 1917, the United States purchased all three islands from Denmark. Examples of 18th and 19th century Danish architecture are found throughout the V.I. To this day, a strong bond remains between Danes and Virgin Islanders. If you are among the many Danes visiting the territory, “Velkommen.”

    We’ve just returned from another visit to Flamboyan on the Bay (our 2nd in 6 months) and had a wonderful time.

    We paid several visits to Northside Grind during each visit and it is amazing what these folks are putting out on a daily visit. The Owners and Staff are outstanding and provide fresh salads, sandwiches and specialty items on a daily basis. They stock a large number of staples, drinks and coffees – it’s really amazing how much they provide in such a small space.

    We’ve frequented Flamboyan for many years and can attest that Northside Grind is the best operation we’ve seen in a long time. Please pay them a visit and try one of their beverages, sandwiches or wraps. They are top notch in our opinion. Enjoy!
