Went their for a lunch when staying at Simpson Bay. The food was good, the prices ok for St Maarten. Watch out for the pastry that they put in a big busket on the table before even asking you. Not a good idea when you have two hungry kids in nead of a proper meal, and not extra suger, with... More

My girlfriend and I went here for breakfast one morning. They give you a basket of pastries and croissants to eat that are amazing. They have crepes and the typical american breakfast, fresh orange juice, good service friendly atmosphere. A bit pricey, but you will enjoy the food.

The ambience here is very nice; outdoor patio seating. You are served with a basket of pastries which are very tasty, fresh and crispy; not oily or cold or stale. I tried EVERY pastry and was not disappointed! The apple tart was heavenly! For breakfast I had the Greenpeace Omelet. So moist, so soft and so delicious. I could taste... More

My family and I ate breakfast for the first time at Zee Best Rest. The french toast, mocha iced coffee were excellent. The omelets are good. Fresh pastries are delicious! The service was wonderful and very friendly. We will go there again. I recommend this restaurant

This bakery is tucked away along the main drag in a plaza-like place near Jimbo's. They give you the option of being served a basket of flavored croissants, and only require that you pay for what you eat. In an effort to be healthy, I ordered a vegetable-egg-white omelette which came with buttered french bread and french coffee. So good!... More

We met the owner of this restaurant on the plane arriving to St.Maarten, he gave us so much information about the entire Island, and invited us to come have breakfast at his restaurant. The best pastries we have ever tasted. He went above and beyond to make us comfortable upon our arrival to the Island!

We stopped her for breakfast at the recommendation of our resort bartender and we weren't disappointed. We were seated promptly, even though there were many people there. The coffee was excellent and they brought a carafe to the table. They place a basket of fresh baked rolls on the table. The cost about $2 US each, but they were irresistible... More

Second visit - love their baking and the service was very good. There were seven of us and the six who ordered omelettes thought were that they were fine - but nothing special. The one who ordered quiche thought it was terrific. We all liked the side salads. Most of us ordered iced tea, a couple ordered orange juice. We... More

There are two locations, one in Simpson Bay, with outside dinning, and one on Airport Rd. next to Thrifty's Car rental. It is a really good idea to get something really good to eat and take on a plane. The food is excellent.
