Just mediocre at best. -Quiche: ordered 2--mushroom and ham & cheese. Again heated in a microwave oven. Was... More

Just so you know...The best Almond croissant on the planet. My wife and I had our afternoon coffee and snack here almost every day. Beautiful view of the lagoon and palm trees overhead. There are lots of tasty pastry places on the island but don't let this one pass you by.

One of our highlights of eating was at this place! We ate breakfast here almost every morning. Everything I ordered was great! It was refreshing having a non-watered down drink for once on the island as well (a Welch's grape juice). I highly recommend this place!

Headed here as our favourite place, A Piece of Cake, is under new ownership and they no longer have fresh pastries ... arrgggh! No smiles here, not a warm atmosphere. My husband ordered a ham and cheese croissant which we thought would be heated in their oven, instead it was nuked and was a hot rubbery mess that he took... More

This is a great place to satisfy a sweet tooth or stock up on croissants for in resort breakfasts. We were only disappointed that we arrived too late to sit outside to enjoy our treats.

This is definitely one of the place you have to buy French bread from. Excellent bread, pastries is good too but a bit pricey.... it is good place you go to treat yourself. Sitting in the back of the restaurant is nice but it is an open space so not good for a rainy day or a hot mid-day...

We found this bakery early in our trip and was so glad. We stopped very often and purchased spinach quiche, French bread and many pastries. One morning we even had them heat up the quiche and sat out back and had our breakfast. The view is to die for!!! The day before we left we went in and loaded up... More

Absolutely delicious pastries and cakes. We found this place early in the trip and I was dying to go again before we left. Check out the peaceful little patio on the water past the pastry counter.
