Very reasonably priced and very good food. We had the chocolate crepes and a "breakfast sandwich" which was more like a full sized lunch. Good service, but the parking is a disaster, with a lot of random spacing and double parking. It all seems to work out though.

Ok, if you're hungry need to know that this will take a while but croissants are amazing, pastries are delicious, prices are pretty high but good food.

Went to St Maarten and stayed at Simpson Bay for two weeks and this is our go to place for breakfast and some to go for lunch. It is a very unassuming place which serves extremely excellent French pastries and baguettes at a very reasonable price. The croissants are flaky and not overly buttery and the baguettes are crusty on... More

And we have tried them all. We go here every chance we get. We start with some baked item for breakfast (I prefer something with goat cheese) or a sandwich for lunch on the back deck overlooking at the lagoon. Once we are done eating we come in and buy the best baguettes ever and usually eat half of them... More

We picked up a variety of pastries. Skip the bread pudding. It was not good at all. The eclairs are average.
