Sign up for a yoga class at Gallows Point Gift or enjoy an espresso on the deck.
Gallows Point Gift & Gourmet, located at Gallows Point Resort, has added daily breakfast to its grocery, fine wine, concierge, gift and excursion booking services.
The owners of the shop are excited to launch the “coffee corner” as they informally call it.
“This was our main impetus for buying this business a year ago, so Shannon could get back to her culinary roots,” said David Pursley, co-owner with his wife Shannon.
Shannon Pursley is an experienced private chef having owned and operated her own catering business on St. Thomas for many years, cooking in villas and for weddings. She also spent summers cooking on a charter fishing yacht in Alaska, enjoying an endless bounty of fresh seafood.
Among the new breakfast offerings Pursley is making are homemade lemon poppy seed and banana bran muffins; banana bread; specialty bagels; sausage, Monterey jack, cheddar and egg frittatas served on a fresh-baked croissant; and a spinach and feta cheese puff with fresh dill. Breakfast burritos and caramel rolls will be added soon.
Drinks include espresso, cappuccino, latte or mocha from fresh Arabica beans, and for an extra energy boost, a mango moon or pineapple/banana smoothie made with fresh coconut water.
The coffee corner is open Tuesday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon.
“We really look forward to building our local clientele,” said Shannon Pursley. “Our shop is not just for tourists and our prices on many items are less than the larger markets.”
“This is not your typical resort ‘gift’ shop,” she said. “;We have so much more.”
The Gallows Point Gift & Gourmet shop is also now arranging Yoga classes with Elizabeth Miller on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday from 8 to 9 a.m. on the ocean deck at Gallows Point Resort.
Miller was born and raised in Colorado and completed yoga teaching training in India. She has been helping people strengthen their minds and bodies for over five years. Trained in Ashtanga, her classes include a combination of Vinyasa and Restorative. Register and pay for the $15 class at the shop.
