We bought some pastries from here and had breakfast here. They have really good coffee too. Definitely stop by if you are in simpson bay and want dessert or good breakfast or just good coffee.

“Clean place, nice service, bad cheesecake”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went here while exploring the dutch side beaches and we got a few things. It’s located in a great space and convenient for people traveling from phillipsburg to marigot

Vibe:
This place felt very modern and large for a SXM pastry/bakery place. It felt a bit too USA for me but it seemed very clean and the seating was set up in a fun way. We found a little nook where there was a couch and a coffee table set up and it felt nice, although a bit commercial.

Service:
The service we got was great. The ladies behind the counter were attentive when we asked for what we wanted and also helpful when we asked for some more ice after we were finished and about the head out.

Food:
We ordered a slice of cheesecake and it was the worst cheesecake I have ever had. I am not exaggerating, and it definitely threw me for a loop because it LOOKED amazing. There was a nice glossy caramelized top on the cake and it held it’s shape so well, but the cheese was mealy and dry. We got some iced coffee and that was quite good

Overall:
I would not return unless I needed just coffee or just a cold drink because there aren't any other places that I saw that do iced coffee. My rating seems harsh but the bread and butter of this place seems to be the items in the glass case by the way they are arranged in the set up so I feel that the cake that we received should carry with it some weight for the rating.
