Stopped by to pick up individual quiches for next morning breakfast...and a sandwich for lunch; very pleased with our choices and given we were in Simpson Bay, more convenient than driving to Marigot!!

Whether stoping in for a true breakfast with great omelettes or grabbing our morning croissant this is our favorite stop on the island.

Prices are a little high but that is to be expected in St. Maarten. Food is great and service was good as well.

So my cousin and I had been planning to indulge in some fine french pastries since we landed in SXM end of july/early august of 2012, and this pretty place close to our hotel just kept catching our eye. The day before we were leaving we finally went in for the kill. Very pretty clean modern little cafe/bakery with a little seating area. We got 1 of EVERYTHING to sample. Each was about $5. Would definitely return when in SXM, and maybe even try to stop in for breakfast. The boxes were pretty, the pastries were pretty, the service was good. The cheescake was a little disappointing, was very dry and bread-ish, but easy to overloook when we had so many great options. Definitely a gem in the middle of a fairly rustic and bustling road. So glad we went all the way in. My two favorites were the multiple chocolate layers cake, and the solid fudge chocolate with crunch on the bottom. Mmmm, wish they would open a location in New York. Definitely a motivation to return to St. Maarten.

The pastries are, of course, amazing but try the sandwiches as well! We bought a few to bring on an early morning fishing trip and they were quite delicious! A very good bargain, too!
