“THE BEST pastries on the entire island”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I'm a bit late in posting my review. We spent 2 weeks in Simpson Bay, St. Maarten back in May of this year. The Taste Factory is new, following on from our visit to this island a year ago. We went to the Taste Factory no less than 8x in 2 weeks. Great bread. Awesome pastries. And good breakfasts too! Our villa was within walking distance, so we could burn off the calories from all these glorious pastries we ate during our stay. We will definitely go back here again next year when we are in St. Maarten!

“Yummy!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Let's just say that the employees knew me by the end of the week. This is a classic French bakery with beautiful beautiful pastries! The creams and light and fluffy, chocolate mousses to die for and breads that look like they are straight from Paris! They have prepared baggettes with cold cuts, a huge variety of coffee beverages made to order. The prices are wonderful for what you are getting - a large filled baggette and two beverages are under $12.00! Pastries that bring a party to your mouth are approx $4.00 each - however, they do a happy hour giving you two for one in the late afternoon. Superb for breakfast - they do eggs, french toast, crepes, etc. and they do it all well!

“Yummy!!!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

We loved it here! The food was amazing! The place was fresh and clean and it had a great "hang out and have a cappuccino" vibe. We didn't get to have the delicious looking French pastries but the quiche... Awesome! Highly recommended!
