Excellent spot for breakfast or lunch. Great outdoor sitting and soothing music. Go with English breakfast, eggs florentine (they were prepared according to the request even though they don't usually do it) or eggs Loraine and croquet Madame. Excellent service. Great beer (Lasko dark)

Spent two weeks in Saint Maarten and this is the go to place for breakfast and lunch. It's truly a very charming place with an excellent host/owner. Not sure how she does it even when the ships are in port at Philipsburg. We have been to South of France and this cafe reminds us of similar cafes in Villefranche, France.... More

Fantastic experience. Terrific chef. Crepes and quiche were exquisite. Cash only. Sat outside on Old Street. Right in downtown Philipsburg

Service from Mrs. Potts ( Beauty and the Beast) So friendly. Food very good. All family members liked what was ordered, crepes very good. Prices fair and middle of shopping district. Very small, may have a wait.

I have been coming to this cafe for the past year or so. It is one of those places I go to have a nice quiet lunch and enjoy some delicious coffee. I love the decorum which makes you feel like you are in a little cafe in France. The staff is nice and friendly. Also I like that you... More

It was the best iced coffee I have found on any Caribbean island. It was a very nice place to sit under the umbrella, sip my coffee and people watch.

The food was great, service was great and it had a European flair! We will go back in the fall when we return to St Maarten.

We had a hard time finding decent service at restaurants, but were pleasantly surprised here. The food was great and the service was absolutely wonderful. We had to tell the owner before we left that this was the best place we had been. It's a great spot to stop if your shopping in Phillipsburg.

Le Petite Cafe was my go-to place for a quick lunch during the work week. They have a range of pizza's, salad's, hot and cold sandwiches, and the best of all their savory crepes. I always spent 15 minutes trying to figure out what to eat because there are so many options and your orange juice can also be made... More

My friend and I have been visiting this cafe for years, since we were teenagers. The food is amazing and very affordable. The staff is friendly and they really go out of their way to make sure you have a good experience. Seeing as I have been going there for so long they usually start to prepare my order as... More
