The best French pastries ever, incredible sort of salty and sweet crepes. Great Service, the owner most of the time is there checking everything runs smooth

The kindest people, delicious food, the eggs benedict are totally worth it! Or if you are feeling like a croissant also the place to be!

We visited at a very busy lunchtime Saturday afternoon and they were really great letting us know it would be a long wait, but they serve pastries to the table while you wait and you only pay for what you eat.

The place's atmosphere is just outdoor eating. Nothing fancy or even inviting. The food here is pretty good but a bit expensive. I had an omelette, bacon and fruit cup. My husband had french toast, bacon and a danish. The bill came to $47USD. The food is good but not worth nearly $50. The service was ok.

We always stop here right after landing on the island as they are located right along the car rental road coming from the airport. Nice spot to have lunch before heading out to check out the island. Nice fresh sandwiches.

A great brunch/ lunch spot. Always love the crepes! The pastries are fresh with varied offerings. Hard to resist a croissant. The wait staff are friendly.

We had a seat quickly and waitress came with the basket and we placed our order. 2 simple dishes from the menu...45 minutes later we got our check to pay but never got the food. Wanted to cancel but waitress said it was... More
