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.

May, 2021

Whether you are searching for a refreshingly healthy drink or the ultimate cocktail mixer, Kombucha is a tasty touch of ‘Bubbly Heaven.’

Now, Northside Grind is happy to announce the coffee shop at Flamboyan Resort is carrying Virgin Leaf Kombucha. 

The sparkling probiotic teas are consciously crafted and locally made with real organic fruit in the USVI. The product is a “…refreshing salute to Caribbean life.”

According to materials provided by Virgin Leaf, “We created a living beverage that helps fuel your mind and body with an extra dose of vitamins, probiotics, and gut-loving.”

Northside Grind proprietors Trish and Tom Dahl advised the coffee shop also is an official recycle center for Virgin Leaf Kombucha bottles.

Said Trish, “Current flavors include Tri-Berry and Ginger Lemonade.  She added, “They are in the process of creating new flavors, too.”

As always, Northside Grind offers everything from gourmet coffee, smoothies, lattes, and espresso to breakfast sandwiches, freshly baked muffins, hoagies, wraps and salads.

Due to current COVID restrictions, entry remains limited to employees. Customers are invited to step beyond the garden gate, sit down and relax outdoors — social distance style. You might get the opportunity to visit with Bridget, the coffee shop’s adorable mascot-in-residence. 

With a thoughtful smile, Tom recalled, “At the beginning of the pandemic last year, things were really slow. Bridget kept me company while I sat outside, just in case a customer drove up.”

These days, business is steady throughout the day, so if the lounge area is in use, guests are invited take food and beverages to the hotel’s poolside lounge area for additional seating.

Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. seven days a week. Most major credit cards are accepted.
