We have breakfast here every morning when on the island. The fresh pastries and the setting are just great. Calm and comfortable. Love it! Order the pastries and sit out on the back deck on the marina.

Great Macaroons!!! Especially the passion fruit one. It was like a party in my mouth. I would go back specifically for that.

This was the first place recommended to me by another guest at the resort I stayed at. This was a french pastry jackpot. We had the baguettes, croissants, sandwiches, macaroons, lemon meringue tarts, and a various desserts over our 2 week stay. Get there before 12 for best selection of desserts. Once they are gone, they are gone for that... More

I went for a cup of coffee and made use of the free wifi while waiting for a friend. They have the code on a poster near the service counter. Service was fast and friendly and the coffee was very good. Also you cant beat the view. Lots of people eating.

This is a great bakery and an easy walk from Simpson Bay Resort & Marina. I walked here every morning and picked up breakfast for my family. Chocolate almond croissant for my daughter, almond croissant for my husband and three small quiche for my son(mushroom,ham&cheese,spinach and feta.) I'd also pick up two baguettes(still warm) for the family to snack on... More

While exploring Philipsburg, we parked and strolled last evening (12/23). We found this bakery by accident, walked in around 7pm and had a light dinner and dessert. -Spicy Sausage In a Roll: was heated in a microwave, sausage not at all spicy. 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
