Miss Lucy's in Coral Bay is unique - and hardly unknown. Despite being a 40-minute drive from Cruz Bay, it was packed Sunday. Could be folks staying in the increasing number of villas on the East End, or it could be years of offering a perfect way to spend Sunday morning.
Eggs Benedict under a seagrape tree, while musicians softly play light jazz under their own branches, while you sip a spicy bloody Mary ... it doesn't get much better - anywhere. I can't think of another place on the island you can have a brunch, or dinner, six feet from the water. Fellow diners are in good spirits, everybody knows they've found something special.
If you want a table outside, you better get there by 9:15am - brunch is served 10a-2p. We got there at 10:30, and there wasn't an outside space available for an hour. Parking is also tough.
