St. Maarten Cafe was a cafe named after the island of St. Maarten and modeled after an island getaway. Their menu offered a wide variety of food, including burgers, pastas, salads, wings, seafood, and a buffet.[1]

The cafe offered guests the opportunity to join the Coconut Club: members received a pewter mug that could be engraved with their names. The mugs could be stored at the restaurant.[2]

St. Maarten's closed abruptly on January 30, 2012.[3]


Because of its proximity to the University of Virginia, St. Maarten Cafe was a favorite restaurant for students[4] Coordinates:Erioll world.svg.png 38°02′04″N 78°29′55″E / 38.0345338582993°N -78.4985885024071°W / 38.0345338582993; --78.4985885024071
