Visited on a Sunday so majority of stores were closed. But luckily Sarafina was opened. We tried quiche Lorraine which was flaky and cheesy. The monte cristo sandwich was delicious and cheesy. Very good pastry shop with lunch items. Outdoor seating.

A few interactions and most were quite positive a little surly now and then, perhaps it gets old fast dealing with people who can't make up their minds and don't know what they are looking at or for. We know enough about French language and patisseries to be pretty easy but still got a little surliness in one visit. Pastries... More

My wife and I decided to stop here after visiting the markets in Marigot. We had heard a lot about Sarafina's so we just decided to stop in. We ordered several things including the prosciutto and cheese sandwich, a ham and cheese croissant, and a vanilla pastry dessert. All of them were excellent. Would absolutely recommend going to this restaurant.

Great pastries at fair prices. They had some great looking sandwiches but we weren't that hungry. The service could have been more friendly and helpful. Has a great French vibe though.

Western travellers, take your time, because sometimes the ques here to get a good coffee and sublime pastry are, frustrating. Bring your french manners, and you will be rewarded with sweets and treats that once again place the french on top

Sarafina's is always a must our trip to our time share. It's hard to imagine a fine french patisserie on a tropical beach but once you've been there you won't forget. The grilled cheese is extraordinary! The eclairs are tremendous. I could keep going on. It's my favorite bakery in the world!

We had a tropical depression hit the island on Wednesday during our stay which caused many of the shops and restaurants to close for Wednesday.. not Sarafina.. we drove all the way around the island on this day and found them open.. not crowded and plenty of close parking. We were surprised and pleased to find the array and variety... More

Wow, what a great place to experience an authentic French Bakery and have breakfast or lunch or just a snack. This is the place where even the local police eat! The choices are plentiful and the food has tastes that I have never been able to experience in the States. The prices are very reasonable for those on a budget.... More

Went to marigot for brunch and decided to get a treat at Sarafina's. We were impressed. It was great. The assortiment was huge! And Coffee was great! Well recommended if you are in Amrigot and need a quick coffee break.
