“Lovely breakfast”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Found this place on our second day in St. Martin and kept going back every day for an awesome breakfast. Pastries, croissants, hot drinks, everything is just delicious and the price is just right. Staff is very friendly and the place is spotless. I definitely recommend it to anyone who visits the island.

“Bonnes patisseries ! so good pastries !”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

And good french baguette too ! A wonderfull place to have a breakfast or lunch (crepes are excellent) and drink coffee or juice. French pastries are better than in France ! A large choice of sandwiches, a menu and armchairs and small tables to enjoy your meal. Staff speak English, Spanish and sometimes...French, and they are friendly. A very good "boulangerie-patisserie" you can't miss in ST Martin on the Dutch side.
