The food was great, snack and great café lattes. Small place but really cozy with tables outside, a couple minutes away from the hotel.

Breakfast is my favorite meal and when I'm home I just grab something quick to eat. So when I'm on vacation I have breakfast out every day! I look forward to eating breakfast at Zee Best every year and I have my breakfast there every morning. I would not go anywhere else. They have all kinds of fresh pastries, eggs,... More

I try and make it here for breakfast at least once every time I come. They have great bread and good sweets (even though I don't eat them) A nice relaxing place. Highly recommended and not too expensive.

While in St. Maarten we went to Zee Best because of a tripadvisor recommendation. We went for breakfast. We were disappointed with how slow the service was. Also we didn't like that they don't accept credit cards. Breakfast ended up being approximately $20.00 pp. For the rest of our stay we ate elsewhere for breakfast...places that took credit cards for... More

A must do for breakfast in Simpson Bay, Zee best offers wonderful danishes, eggs and French toast. Everything is fresh and served with a smile. Try the fresh squeezed orange juice.

My wife and I and many friends have eaten at Zee Best Restaurant. The cherry danishes are to die for and the crepes and various other menu items are equally tasty. I would highly recommend Zee Best Restaurant.

It was fresh, it was clean, it was really good. We kept it simple with eggs and french toast. I ate everything in the bread basket (hangs my head down in shame). This restaurant is a must.

We ate here for breakfast once on our trip. We ordered a regular french toast and a banana/walnut french toast. The regular french toast was very wet so I was not a fan of it. The banana/walnut french toast was cooked from the pastry so it was a bit better. Overall, wasn't a fan of these breakfast items. If I... More
