Walking Food Tour of Phillipsburg
We really enjoyed this tour. We stopped at four different places: a cafe where we had a Gouda stuffed croissant and spinach lasagne, paired with a glass of rose wine, a barbecue place with the best ribs and johnny cake ever (and we got to try a beer made in St. Maarten), a rum tasting at the smallest bar with a highly entertaining owner, and the most amazing bubble waffle (we wanted to lick the plate). We have been coming to SXM for years and never walked down some of these streets before, but will again to visit these wonderful restaurants. Ankie and Cheryl are great guides and provided information on the history of the island and Phillipsburg as well, so we learned a lot and ate a lot. Highly recommend!

There is great food to be found in hidden places and we are so very happy that you enjoyed them all! Coffee Lounge, Courtyard, Juggie's and Up & Poppin are all special places. History and culture together with food, what more could we ask for? Remember Captain Hodge and his light blue schooner The Blue Peter? Want to join us in our other locations for more Food Fun?

Foodie walking tour
Excellent way to taste a part of St Maarten.
Bert was obviously quite knowledgable and enjoys doing this. If you do the trip book Bert although he's still looking for why the S's down the street.
Everyone in St Maarten should stop by the Coffee Lounge. Everything was great and I'm still trying to eat my way through their dishes.
Stop in the Up and Pop In for one of the best waffles you'll ever have then get the flavored popcorn to top it off.
Here's a toast to the Smallest Bar in the World and their chocolate rum.

Fantastic walking food tour
Jan 2020
My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Ankie for a walking food tour of Philipsburg in January of 2020. It involved about 3 hours of walking around the small downtown waterfront area of Philipsburg, with local food tastings and a dash of the islands history/culture from Ankie to boot (i.e. quick visits to local/historical churches, discussions of architecture, older construction that survived Irma, hurricane recovery, etc.). Ankie was absolutely delightful and clearly loves what she does... she is witty and enthusiastic, and also made some excellent restaurant recommendations for us for the rest of our trip. The food tastings were excellent... starting with French style crepe's... then a delicious Creole chicken at Antoine's... an infused rhum tasting at 'Juggie's', and ending with a specialty popcorn and iced cream covered waffle. As with any tour the guide will make or break your experience, and Ankie was outstanding. Would strongly recommend as it's a great way to see/taste/experience Philipsburg.

Amazing tour with an amazing guide
Oct 2019
Phillipsburg is a truly amazing place on the beautiful island of Sint Maarten. So many different entertainment options are available, but if you miss the walking foodie tour, you have missed the best of the best! Our tour visited four wonderful, home grown businesses, each with its own character and flavors. Our guide, Ankie, is a true gem. She is well versed on the island and Phillipsburg. Ankie provided history vignettes as we walked from place to place and introduced us to the local entrepreneurs. The food was amazing, from Crepes to popcorn covered waffles, with rhum in between, we immersed ourselves in the culture of St. Maarten. A morning well spent, with wonderful company! Thank you Ankie!

Fun and interesting tour
Apr 2019 • Couples
We went to 4 places on this tour with our guide Ankie. First for a cornmeal breakfast hand pie filled with greens, which apparently is a typical breakfast meal for locals. Next we had a delicious shrimp and rice dish at a Front St restaurant, Antoine by the Sea. Wonderful view and staff. Next was on to Juggies for rum tasting and lastly gelato . Didn't care for the breakfast pie, I think we should have been given a little choice here, but the rest of the food was wonderful. Ankie tends to be a bit opinionated and maybe should tone down her opinions a bit. She did give us a nice abbreviated history lesson of the island and we liked that for sure.

Dear vacationgirl50, Thank you for your kind words! We are happy you enjoyed the food on the Walking tour. Antoine's is a gem and we are happy to have them as our partner. It is always a challenge to satisfy every pallet. Ankie can be a little opinionated and that must be the Dutch coming out and she means no harm. We will surely share your comments with her.

Wonderful Caribbean treats with a delightful host!
Feb 2019 • Couples
From the sunny smile greeting us at the dock, thru multiple restaurants and streets hearing learning about the culture of St Maarten, until the final hug goodbye, I will have to say this was one of the best tours I've been on! Shanira was so friendly and personable, we instantly clicked and were sharing jokes and laughing like long lost friends. The food was flavorful and the rum sampled from the "Smallest bar in the world" was a huge hit! We will be back and when we do...we will book again for sure!

Delicious Food and a Great Guide
Feb 2019 • Couples
Imagine our surprise when we arrived at our designated meeting spot to find that we were the only two customers booked for the Foodie Walking Tour! We couldn't have asked for a better way to end our Winter Escape than with a private foodie tour of Philipsburg guided by the lovely and engaging Deja. In between stops for tasty food treats, we were given a history of St. Martin and some insight into social and cultural differences between the Dutch and French sides of the island.
Our first stop was The Original Jerk and Roti House for a savory meat pie with spinach - the dough was so light and I believe it was flavored with tumeric ... just amazing and delicious and very filling! Our second stop was Antoine's Restaurant where we had a table directly facing the boardwalk and beach - the view was stunning and we were each served a plate of garlic shrimp, rice, and salad. I could have sat there with that view eating those shrimp all day! Our third stop was Juggie's Place, which is billed as the smallest bar in the world. Not only did we get to spend time chatting with the amazing Juggie, we also sampled some of his happiness in a bottle ... I was partial to the Spiced Rum and the Honey Rum while my husband favored the Chocolate Rum. This was such a fun place to visit and I can definitely see us coming back again the next time we are on the island. Our final stop was Gelateria Milano where we each chose two scoops of light, flavorful gelato to enjoy in their secret garden. We also had the added bonus of being able to chat with Deja about many of her travel adventures ... she has convinced us that we need to visit the Greek islands sooner rather than later!
This was our second tour with Flavors of St Martin - we took their culinary road trip in November 2016 and it was fabulous - and we can't say enough good things about the company and its staff. They do an amazing job and are passionate about the island, its culture, and its food, fully supporting local businesses with their tasty tours. Book with Flavors - you won't be disappointed!

Amazing Cultural Food Tour!
Jan 2019 • Friends
The Philipsburg foodie walking tour was such a great experience and a nice way to learn about the Dutch side of the island! We wandered the streets of the capital city while devouring St. Maarten’s local cuisine. We sipped homemade rums, ate an authentic Caribbean breakfast, dined by the beach as we tasted traditional French food, and finished with yummy gelato in a picturesque garden. Our tour guide Ankie was so knowledgeable and fun! We also visited a small outdoor art gallery where we met the well-known artist himself. It was truly an amazing, cultural food tour!

Deja made the tour a 5.
Jan 2019 • Couples
The food tour was very nice. We started brunch with a local morning patty. It was interesting. The food at Antonio's French Restaurant was delicious. We had rum tasting at the St. Maartins' smallest Bar called Juggies. Fun, friendly and chocolate rum...yummm. We ended with Gelato. The island is still recovering from the hurricane in 2017. Deja was knowledgeable and personable. We saw beautiful alleys/arcades we would never have seen had it not been for the tour.
We all felt it would have been nice to have one or two other small bites to round out the experience. But all in all it was very enjoyable.
