The food was very good, but not very hot when it came out. Very small restaurant, service is okay, it was very hot in the dining area, but so are a lot of the local restaurants in St. Maarten. Excellent food, reasonable prices, medium to slow service (very friendly thought). I would definitely go back, the food is THAT good.

Showed up during brunch, it was a little crowded, but we were seated promptly.
Our orders were taken quickly. Drinks followed very shortly. After that, it was 40+ minutes to wait for 2 plates of French toast. The waitress never asked how we were, if we needed more drinks, nothing. When we were ready to leave, the waitress was no where to be found.
The food was original and good, but not extraordinary.
The restaurant was recommended by friends and has many other good reviews, maybe it was just not zee luckiest day for us.
It's doubtful we will return

We have been visiting St. Martin for 10+ years. We had been told that the breakfast there was best on the island. Why we waited several years to go I do not know but now we go there several times each visit which is 3-4 times a year. My advice - don't wait! Make it a priority on your every visit. Love eggs Benedict and the pastries are the best ever. You will LOVE this place. Not fancy but you will feel at home & leave happy!!!

We ate here several times during our one week stay in St Maarten. We enjoyed and sample several of their crépes and croissants and even made this our last stop on our way to the airport to pick up a few croissants! Great place to eat!
