Here almost every day during our two weeks stay on the island. The baguettes are great, the croissants are delicious as are the danish. You must stop here.

We stayed pretty close to La Sucriere and stopped more than once for breakfast. My wife said it was the best chocolate croissant she has ever had. We will definitely be back.

Small no frills bakery offering wide variety of pastries. Crossiants and coffee are the best. Coffee is nice and strong for all the coffee lovers. Service was good and quick. Actually felt like you were being rushed a little due to so many options and...the small space. Great seating area in the back that overlooks the water. Fyi they have live iguanas that's roam free. The iguanas dont bother anyone, they just like hanging around.More

i have to say that lots of people like this place but it doesn't work for me. since they added the sandwich shop inside, the service is so slow as to be unbearable and , ( to my taste ) the coffee is not very...good and the pastries tasteless.... but the have good crowds so maybe its just meMore

We stop here to pick up very good baguettes and I’ll stop in in during my morning walk for coffee and a quiche or a croissant, etc. the seating is outside on the patio, partly under cover, facing the lagoon. Nice view. There is no...table service - you place your order at the counter and carry it outside on a tray. Plenty of delicious pastries to choose from.More

Think previous reviews are far too generous. The croissants were heavy and had few layers, the almond tasted like ‘sweet’ versus an almond croissant. The seating area outside smelled a lot like sewage so it was not a pleasant place to brunch at all (other...than feeding the iguanas.) The baguettes tasted just like the ones we got at Carrefour, so we were generous with the iguana food. Extremely disappointing, nothing was worthy of calling it a French bakery. We had better croissants at Zee Bakery near the airport.More

Whether it's just an almond croissant and coffee for breakfast or filled baguette for lunch, this is our 'go to' place - it's lovely to see the iguanas as well on the deck. So hard to drive past and not call in!!

This resort area is in a rather isolated area over a small mountain from Cul-de-Sac. A beautiful area. I am not too familiar with amenities offered here, though there is a marina and a few resorts, so there should be places... More
