“Great breakfast option in Simpson Bay”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

When you are seated, your offered a basket of wonderful pastries which we really enjoyed. The breakfast options are your standard egg offerings. The omelets are very good here and the prices are fair. We found the service to be very good.

“Great place for breakfast and great service.”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We ate here for breakfast 5 out of the 7 days we stayed on Simpson Bay. Everything we got there was very good. From French toast, to crepes and quiche it was all great. We also enjoyed the pasteries they brought out for us every AM. Service was also some of the best we had on the island.

“Lackluster food and service”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

We've been to Zee Best 3 times now. Sometimes they tell you there is a charge for the basket of pastries they put on the table, sometimes they don't. Sometimes service is OK, sometimes it's unfriendly and poor. This time my husband and I went to sit at a corner table for four so we could look out at the palm trees and birds - there were only 2 tables occupied, mind, during low season, but we were told to pick a smaller table anyway. No one else ever did occupy the table while we were there and the place was dead. I had a very dry ham and cheese croissant. Having lived in Paris I've had much better, and I understand the creperies in Marigot and Grand Case are much better. My husband's fruit salad was fine. We won't be back. Too many consistently good places to go on the island to waste money here.

“ok for a relaxed lunch”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Went their for a lunch when staying at Simpson Bay. The food was good, the prices ok for St Maarten. Watch out for the pastry that they put in a big busket on the table before even asking you. Not a good idea when you have two hungry kids in nead of a proper meal, and not extra suger, with you.
The taco breakfast was excellent though and the quiches too. The service and the atmosphere were relaxed and not hurried. They also have a bakery with good quality baguettes and pastry.
