Was here last April and needed a taste of something sweet. The Taste Factory has pastries for all palettes and the coffee and cappuccino is fantastic.

Taste Factory is a good idea if you are not in a mood for a restaurant but would like to eat well nevertheless. It looks like a cross between a diner and a French bistro. My kids shared a baguette which are huge and filling. Everything tasted fresh despite the heat outside. Would not advise it for a special occasion... More

We were in the Simpson Bay area on our honeymoon and decided to try out the Taste Factory for breakfast twice, as well as desserts. We were very pleased. On our first visit we had the savory crepe and french toast. The second visit we had quiche. It was all sinfully good! Then we also stopped back after 5pm once... More

The Baguettes are to die for; fresh at any time of day. Lots of beautiful and delicious pastries to choose from daily. Go after 5 pm daily and get 6 croissants for $6 and 3 pastries for the price of 2; otherwise, it is a bit pricey.

We stopped here for breakfast and were not that impressed. Everything looked good, but the service was bad and the prices high for quality. The kid who waited on us seemed distracted. They had menus, but apparently they were not making everything on the menu the day we were there. I had a croissant and a cappuccino. We also shared... More

We went to the Taste Factory twice during our holiday. Once we had a breakfast and the other time we took deliciously filled baguettes to have them at the beach. Although it's not exactly cheap here, we found that the quality and freshness of the products was well worth the price. Everything was fresh, the bread was crispy and the... More

Was here on April 2 , it was in the afternoon so the pastries I had was stale and not fresh. ( flan, cheesecake and some custard) Overpriced- around 4$ each but then everything on the island is expensive. Would visit again , but in the morning, hopefully when everything is fresh.

My husband & I stopped by here after being on the water all day for a late snack/lunch. I had the Paris Brest (yes, that is spelled how they had it labelled) which is a cream puff type pastry with a hazelnut chocolate filling. It was pretty big so I think the $5 I paid for it was reasonable. I... More
