When you come upon this unassuming little bakery, you have no idea that you are about to go on a journey to France! Everything about the pastries and the food screamed France to me and it reminded me of the time I have spent in that beautiful country. You would think the best French Bakery would be on the French... More

What I wouldn't give to eat here every morning! I just can't say enough about the croissants, crepes and coffee. It's a little shop, you'll miss it if you're not really looking for it, do yourself a favor and look for it! We even grabbed breakfast to go several times and it was never disappointing.

I liked my breakfast here but my friend did not like the way the eggs were cooked. French cooking, I have found, does not lead to eggs being cooked too much even when asked. It is not their fault, it is the culture and I like it. There was a steady line of customers coming and going with bakery items.... More

You would think the best pastries and bread would be found on the French side but it's actually on the Dutch at Atlantico. The service is always friendly and the pain au chocolat melts in your mouth- to die for!

In Simpson Bay, the area surrounding the airport, we found this petite French Bakery. We actually ate there twice it was so good! Both times there was one woman working, the same woman, and she was wonderful. Service was fast, food was good, and you could obviously tell she took pride in her work. And for the quality of the...

Gordon, property manager, advised we visit here and it quickly became a mainstay. Great espresso, awesome BLT, and entertaining people watching.

We came here for a cappuccino and made it a point to have breakfast here the next day. This 'cash only' gem has a sweet and kind owner who makes you feel so welcome. The coffee is smooth and rich, while the pastries smell to die for but we got breakfast sandwiches. Bacon, egg & cheese on a multigrain croissant... More

Little local place across from a gourmet market. Parking in front if you need to watch your car and luggage on the way to the airport. Quick sandwiches, paninis, omelettes, crepes, pastries. Very friendly guy at the counter. Good value.
