The place to get your croissants and pain du jour

This is simply a great bakery. Its up there with the best in Paris (from personal experience). To those who complain about service, I have no idea what you are referring to. My French accent is fine, but limited use. I never have any problem here. The women servicing are always incredibly... read more

We come here every year almost daily for breakfast- the pastries are just amazing. This is such a little gem hidden away on the island.

Visiting this bakery was one of our finest memories we have of visiting Gustavia. Walking steep uphill to reach this small bakery was so worth it. Love it, Vlada Vladic Temecula, California

This bakery is open early AM and has superb breads. They also produce a fresh daily supply of baguette's with chicken, ham, tuna. The cost is 3 Euro for the basic version and there is a 5 Euro with some upgraded ingredients. These are great sandwiches at your villa or the beach. Very popular and the selection is gone early...

I have been visiting St. Barths for more than 10 years, sometimes twice in a year. I still go to this bakery occasionally because it is close to where I stay and the baked goods are good, BUT I do prepare myself for some morning bad blatant attitude from certain employees at this place. I have no problems with this... More

La Petite Columbe was the place I would go to to pick up breakfast to take back to the villa in Flamands. The croissants were fabulous (especially the chocolate ones) and breakfast quiches were good too. Picked up Pizza for lunch also one time. Large selection of various breads. Very much a bargain for the quality. They open at 6... More

We were lucky enough to stay in Flamands and made the daily trek here for morning parties and bread. The mini quiches are awesome!

Not much not to like. Friendly folks at the counter, really good baked goods, more than fair prices and if you go early enough a broad selection. Maybe not the very best you've ever had (if you've been to say Paris), but you won't be disappointed. If in the area don't pass it up.

Everything they make either was or looked amazing and the pricing was an unqualified bargain relative to elsewhere on the Island. They have pizzas, quiches, beignets, all kinds of pastries, breads and a wonderful assortment of sandwiches.
