One visit turned into two

Solid French(ish) bakery with good croissants, delicious macaroons, and thank goodness for their iced lattes. We came here one when roaming around Marigot and wound up returning again for breakfast the very next day (all the way from Phillipsburg). Definitely recommend.

Outside only place with top of the line bakery and food items. Bring cash unless you're buying a lot of items. Very clean and staff was very friendly.

We were waiting to take the first ferry to Anguilla for the day so we wandered down the street to get some breakfast snacks. The pain au chocolat was calling our name and was just what we needed. Very fresh and very good.

We always treat ourselves to many pastries while on the island. I must have the Raspberry filled Beignets and Chocolate Chip Croissants whenever I come here. So many choices, you will not be disappointed. If you buy over $10, I believe, you can put it on your credit card. Needless to say, that is never a problem with us.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on the recommendation from 'The Mailman' from Bernard's Tours. It did not disappoint. We both had a Croque Monsieur and a pastry. I had a praline, my wife an eclair... and a chocolate croissant. We both agreed that this was the best pastry we'd had since a trip to Paris last year.

We visited Sarafina's on the recommendation of our tour guide with Bernard's Tours. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. At the time of our visit, the exchange $ to Euro was 1:1 and we thought we'd have no trouble meeting the $15 minimum for use of debit card. After selecting a huge chocolate éclair, vanilla macaroon, large sandwich, small sandwich, diet... More

The ham and cheese croissant was so good! We also had quite a few sweet pastries and my favorites were a chocolate cake and chocolate macaroons. We went on a tour around lunch time and the wait wasn't bad at all but we did rush off the bus. So glad we did because they started running out of items.

Stopped twice. Once prior to the Anguilla ferry the other on a morning shopping trip. Pleased both times with friendly staff and prompt service. Croissants and pain au chocolat were delicious. Paninis were also good. Nothing outstanding here but good so I'd recommend it.

I love pastry and this place fit the bill just fine. We had some small sandwiches that were good but the pastry is the star of the show. The only problems I had was that the menu was in French and there was such a large selection it was tough to not to stuff yourself.

My wife happened upon this place looking for ice cream and walked out with a handful of pastry which were excellent. Everything was delicate and delicious. Worth stopping by, whether by accident or not. Enjoy!
