My husband and I ordered two desserts - chocolate cake and a cake with strawberries not sure what they were called but both of these were out of this world so good. The chocolate cake was so decadent and rich I had to eat it in three servings. I savored every bit. The strawberry cake was just as great. My... More

The bread and whatever was on them was fresh and tasty. Great variety and you will take home some pastry.

Nice, uncomplicated little place to eat with wifi, air conditioning and tv to watch the games. In general the food is good and nice variety. The crepes were my favorite. The pastries weren't the greatest though, but worth a try if something catches your fancy in the casing. Service is great, makes it all even out.

Food is ok, a bit overpriced but the "line" does not make sense. People are ordering over each other and then you have to go back to the cash register and its all one big cluster mess.

If you are looking for fresh french pastries, this is on of at least 3 I've visited each morning for breakfast. It is a little pricey, but their Raisin rolls are to die for.

We stayed in Simpson Bay, and every morning we would walk to this French Bakery for their freshly baked bread, croissants, pastries or savory sandwiches. You can eat there, or take it back to your room, as we did. A perfect start to the day when you are in St. Maarten.

Great place if you are looking for simple and tasty late breakfast which fill you for, at least, until dinner. Omelets are perfect and come with fried potatoes and toasts, espresso is one of the best. Also, they have great choice of French pastries and cakes, and you can buy them all day long or after 5 pm with special... More
