Lagniappe means "A Little Something Extra".  That's exactly what you will get at The Turtle Egg!  Great food, great service and that little something extra! 

Authentic Cajun "Lagniappe"

Chef Joe and Linda moved to St Croix last year from Louisiana and fell in love with the island, the people, and the culture. They decided to open the Turtle Egg so as to offer some local cuisine and show the locals some authentic cajun "lagniappe" (a little something extra).

We do our best to support the local economy so whenever it is possible we do like to utilize products from local farmers. and vendors.

We are dedicated to the safety and preservation of the turtle population, hence the name "The Turtle Egg".

Always Delicious.

We combine the freshest ingredients and meats along with Chef Joe’s family recipes. Each entrée is made to order daily and we pride ourselves on providing quality food at a friendly price.
