“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

The familiar folks at La Croissanterie go above and beyond to welcome you to their cafe in Marigot. So many choices make this a must stop for a enjoyable, peaceful, and relaxing breakfast while starting your day.

Juice, Crepes, Coffee, Pastries, if you've experienced a French bakery in the states, remove any notion from your mind and allow yourself to realize that you are in a French territory and that the French bakery you've just entered is the real deal.

Try any croissant (ham/cheese, chocolate of course).

“Island's Best French Breakfast and Lunch served!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

This place is a must stop on every trip to St Martin. I'm not sure if it's the spectacular view of the Marina Royale with ships parked and visitors docking in dinghies, or if it's the flow of locals and tourists about the boardwalk, the gentle breeze that sweeps through the entire restaurant, the delicious simple French food that Colette is steadily ushering out of the kitchen, the dignity with which Sylvain runs his place, or the ease with which Pierre navigates the customers and waits tables, which gets me to love this place. Or maybe it's the great love with which every dish is prepared. Croissants crisped for breakfast, croque-madames with an egg on top, crispy pizzas, sumptuous crêpes and fresh fare are all abound in this secret find that should be the talk of town. Everybody gets a Bonjour and a belly full while wondering what you will do with the other half of your day on this special island of St Martin.

“the BEST breakfast experience!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I am not particularly interested in breakfast food but I am so happy I stumbled upon this place! We were a group of six and ended up eating breakfast here almost every day because the food (especially the croissants) was so amazing. The ham and cheese croissants were (2 large) for $7.50 us dollars and were unbelievably flaky, buttery, warm, fresh, and delicious! My mouth is still watering for them and I may have to go back to Saint Maarten just so I can have them again! It was also great that this place is located right next to a parking lot for easy access and right on the water so you can enjoy a water view and gentle breezes while you dine. Pricing was also reasonable. The owner and his staff are very friendly and eager to please.

“Like Breakfast in Paris”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Beautiful waterfront scenery and friendly staff who speak excellent French and English. It is a "must" for anyone wanting a breakfast in Marigot. The croissants are freshly made and still hot, right out of the oven. It is like being in a French bakery shop. You have a choice of American or European coffee and American or European breakfast. The crepes are outstanding. Best on the Island. We go every year.
