Wonderful food with a large menu. Everything was delicious and fresh. We went back 3 or 4 times and it would be my first choice every time. They also have fresh and delicious pastries. I only wish they were open longer. They close at 2PM....More

Little outdoor restaurant with freshly baked pastries and a wonderful breakfast menu. Everything is fresh and cooked well and very moderately priced. Not the huge, mass produced globs that you get at so many places. Well worth finding.

Zee Best has a great breakfast in Sint Maarten. The savoury crepe that I ordered was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Make sure to try the french toast. It is to die for.

Zee Best is just that, the best breakfast on the island. Fresh food, friendly staff, and one of the few places that serve breakfast until 2 for late risers.

It's pretty much our daily stop. Wonderful pastries...fantastic omelets...savory crepes. They do it all well. There's no place on SXM we go more frequently than Zee Best...which it is. But no dinner and no credit cards.
