“great place for breakfast”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This restaurant is right on the main road. It's open early enough for a good breakfast. Selections are varied, not just bagels. But there are really lots of different bagels to choose from. I usually eat breakfast here whenever I'm in Sint Maarten. For my most recent visit, I chose the carbonara bagel...it was really yummy, filling, and big...I barely finished it because of its size. The waitress is also really nice and makes you feel at home.

“Great Food, Great Owners!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We had a memorable meal at Vesna. Don't let the "Bagel House" title fool you as you can get a great dinner at this little restaurant right on the main drag in Simpson Bay. It can be tricky to find parking, but if you around back there is a lot with parking. Even the outdoor seating is on the main road, it didn't detract from our meal. Seafood, Steaks, Soup, Salad ... our party of five tried it all. One of the owners came out to our table and had a great conversation with us ... and she provided everybody with banana rum shots made by her husband to end the meal. Our waitress was on the ball and those not driving back helped take care of two bottles of wine! A great evening, all in all!

“Great place to have breakfast!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Went here for breakfast and although it was a traditional breakfast menu, the food was delicious! My husband had sausage, bacon, toast (perfect toast he says) and pancakes, while I had the vegetable omelet and fresh fruit. The omelet was cooked perfectly!

“Great place”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

It was a little though to find a place to park but we were able to park behind the restaurant at the travelers inn. The food was great, and the service was amazing with the owner talking to us after our meal giving us complementary banana rum shots. I'd definitely go there again.

“New place for us- been to Sint Maarten 6 times”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We found Vesna on trip advisor!! Excellent service. The soup and tomato mozzarella appetizers were right on! Tatzkiki was average. The Greek salad was exactly the way it was supposed to be. Shrimp curry was perfect, with sides of mashed potato and rice. Price was reasonable for a family of five (three kids 13 and under). Location right on the main drag makes it a bit noisy. Great find and since it's known for breakfast, we'll have to give that a try.
