No one will greet you, they're busy chatting with each other. The huge front door mat was flipped over and we had to watch our step to get past it with LOTS of sand all over the floor and brooms piled up by the door. Maybe after their conversation one of them would get a chance to sweep? As we... More

Fabulous selection of sandwiches and pastries. Wicked quick WiFi. Directly across the street from the BEST dive shop EVER. Not possible to leave this place hungry! The servers make incredible recommendations and absolutely DO NOT rush you. We had time to kill before our cab ride to the airport and we just ate, and surfed the web, and ate, and... More

several years ago we dined her every morning but not the pastries are not put out until after 11am. Hot breakfast is super slow- over an hour for omelet and French toast. Fresh cold sandwiches, coffee and croissant are the way to go. Staff friendly but seem to be too busy chatting with each other to direct customers. The macaroon... More

The pastries at this place are amazing. Where I live we don't have a french bakery so we always look forward to visiting this establishment when we are in St. Maarten. Can name exactly what we had, but it was quite amazing and a big improvement over the doughnuts and such that we have in bakeries here in the states.... More

Love the French bread and pastries, however our favorite are the sandwiches. The prosciutto with brie cheese is awesome. Great for breakfast

I loved the coconut cake and the crossiants. It was a nicely set up cafe that also served lunch. It is walking distance from the Atrium also.

We had a great breakfast here, the eggs were prepared to order and fresh. Hint - at the end of the day, they really discount their baked goods. They do not hold any food over for the following day.
