Turtle's Deli

2018 is not starting out as well as we hoped. Last night Mary was crossing the street in Frederiksted when she was hit by a truck. The major damage is to her right foot. She is being operated on this morning.

The result of this is that having just re-opened 2 an 1/2 weeks ago we are now going to have to close again. We do not know at this time how long Mary will be out of commission but we will keep everyone informed of our plans via Facebook.

Turtle's Deli

Turtles Deli is closed today 1/9/18. Mary is sick and fells it would be best if she does not make sandwiches today. She does not want to spread this joy around by making others sick. It is impossible for me to make the sandwiches without her, consequently we are closed for the day. Hopefully we will be open again tomorrow. We are very sorry and will try not to allow this to happen again. Thanks for understanding. ... See MoreSee Less

feel better, Mary!

Rest up this is a bad one going around. It's been 3weeks and I still have a cough. Don't feel bad, take as much time as you need to feel better. ☺

Feel better soon Mary. Stay home as long as you need to. We’ve all been under a lot of stress for a long time, so take care of yourself first. 🖖😷🤒

Hope you feel better soon! Lots of sick going around lately...take care of yourself!

Bob, give her a hug for me. Hope she feels better. Sharing is caring, except when you're sick.

Feel better soon and my husband and I will have lunch Friday

Rest and get well!

You guys take care and hang in there.

Feel better Mary ♡

Feel better!

Sending you healing thoughts Mary Scribner
