After too many fruity drinks, their savory ham and cheese omelet really hit the spot. Good service as well.

I was told by someone that Zee Best Restaurant was really, truly the best. So, we went for breakfast. My daughter and I ordered the french toast and it was made from croissant. It was a disgusting, wet mess. Neither of us could eat it; the texture alone was gross. My son had an average omelette. We would not go... More

They have a great breakfast and great pastries, waitresses were very good and very accommodating. We went to Cafe Atlantico a few days before this, it was rated much higher we didn't care for them at all. My wife and I felt this place was so much better, no comparison at all!

Zee Best on Welfare Rd in Simpson Bay area is one of the best places for breakfast! Lovely outdoor patio, great good and service. But be careful......they give you a large basket of Danish for your table and it's not free. You will get charged for each one eaten on your bill.....surprise!

We always end our trip to St. Martin with breakfast at Zee Best. The almond croissants are the best I've ever had, and I love their goat cheese and spinach omelette. Everyone in our party was happy with their meal. One thing to note: Zee Best accepts cash only. Love this spot!

Probably the best breakfast on the island! Wide variety on the menu with great crepes and their croissants and pastries are the best around.

I've been to Zee Best on several occasions, and while the food was consistently decent, I would highly recommend skipping. I don't think this place is worth the headache. There are several minor issues that alone wouldn't be terribly bothersome, but combined irritate me to the point that I will never return. Firstly, the seating area is quite crammed, and... More

We stopped here at 11am, thinking lunch. Lunch is not served until 11:30 am, so we had to have breakfast items. I had the ham and cheese omelet, it was pretty bland. When you first come in, they set a big dish of pastries in front of you and say, "if you eat one you pay for it" Personally, if... More
