Wonderful!

Really nothing but good things to say. The baguettes are fantastic, warm and yeasty, perfect crust. The pastries are wonderful as well. The Pain Raisin is the best I have had on the island! The custard rolls are delicious too. Staff has been friendly on all my visits. I have not eaten lunch there... read more

Although on the Dutch side this French bakery is to die for. Great variety of pastries and breads. Excellent cafe au lait. The eclairs, napoleons, custards- oh la la! Went twice and would have gone back again if we had time.

I had a chocolate croissant and coffee. And I realized it is indeed a French island- made me feel like I was back in France. Good price! Nice backyard area

I had a salad, which to my taste was mediocre. It contained a sliced pickle, some black olives out of a can, a lot of lettice, a sliced up tomato, no carrots, no egg, a few slices of onion, no dressing. My mother wanted cream in her black coffee, so I went to ask for it, and instead of just... More

Wonderful variety of French pastries, tarts, quiches, cakes and breads. Great coffee and very good prices. They have a lovely patio overlooking the marina and the hills. Loved it!

If you are in Simpson Bay take the time to enjoy some of the great baked goods. Sit on the deck and take in the island view and relax. Its all good here!!

This is not in Philipsburg, but on the main road between Simpson Bay and Cole Bay. Sandwiches are great and the bread is wonderful. I'm not a lover of pastries and croissants but very one seems to love them.

The 3 chocolate mousse cake is the go to for every birthday party we have. In fact, it was so great that the person who bought my last birthday cake ate the whole thing before I even had my second slice. Fantastic sandwiches for a picnic on the beach at very reasonable prices.

Stopped in for baked good for breakfast. Everything fresh and inviting but the staff is very short on both trips at the point of rudeness. Would go somewhere else if you can.

New owners have improved this coffee from last year.. Good selection of pastries and breads.. Service is very disorganized and takes forever to get your order.
