I live in St Maarten and work a few blocks away, so this is a place I frequent often. The food is consistently good and the ambiance and service is always welcoming, warm and friendly. The menu prices are perfect for us "workers" as some of the places in town cater more to tourists and really don't care if you... More

This staff was horrible. We arrived literally a minute after 3pm. Coming simply for ice cream and a moment to compose ourselves after getting off the Oasis of the seas ship. We noted they were closed immediately when we entered and turned around to leave, first staff member saw us leave and felt she needed to point out that they... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a store owner in town. The food was OK, my wife did not like her burger, fries were hot and fresh. The server was friendly and gave us good service. My steak sandwich was OK, the baget was very fresh. The upstairs is air conditioned but being it's not enclosed still pretty warm. Probably... More

Enjoyed a great breakfast with French toast and scrambled eggs with cheese. The toast was sweet a comforting whilst the scrambled eggs were soft, cheesy and well seasoned. A great breakfast and the best we had on the island till now

If you are looking for an ice spot to eat while stopping in Philipsberg, the Front Street Cafe is just the place. The food is good and the owners are very nice and friendly.

This a a short walk or water taxi from the cruise ship terminal. You can also stop here after a tour on the island--the tour bus will drop you off and you are on your own. There are a number of nice shops ad excellent restaurants. We really enjoyed the water taxi back to the terminal--very relaxing.
