After having tasted the terrible Zee Best rest we tried this place and have to say it was much better. Pastries were fresh and the crepes were amazing. Prices are not cheap but then again nothing is in simpson Bay. I will repeat again in my next trip.

We went there because of the reviews, I had to go back outside and read the sign to make sure I had the right place. It's like a little hole in the wall. We had to wait for someone to clean the table as they were all dirty. We ordered coffee, omelettes and pastries, they were OK nothing special. With... More

So YUM. Everything I have here is so good. Feels like Paris. My very favorite are The whole grain croissants. You have to get them early because they always sell out.

We went here several times for breakfast during our visit to St. Maarten. Food was outstanding and reasonably priced (breakfast for two with omelettes, coffee, and croissant was $20). The baked goods are very light and taste European. Flour is from Paris and products are baked daily. Lots of locals come so you know it's great! Locals said the sandwiches... More

My wife and I would would walk from Maho to Simpson Bay most mornings and found this little cafe by accident and we have been coming back often every time we are in St. Maarten. Fresh squeeze OJ, a fresh baked baguette with scrambled eggs, and a cup of coffee and life is good. When our boys join us, they... More

We tried a couple of other places for breakfast and this became our go to. The fresh bread is excellent and the omelettes were very good. We returned to the cafe and tried various omelettes and all were excellent. The cafe was busy however it is worth the few minutes wait to get your food and coffee. Many repeat customers... More

This is my third breakfast in a row here. I love this little bakery cafe. My ham and cheese omelet yesterday was also excellent.
