After a disappointing and grumpy experience at our usual St. Maarten go-to breakfast place we were lucky to find Zee Best. It was a decent walk from the Azure hotel and we enjoyed the get our exercise done/eat breakfast/more exercise on the way back before beaching routine.
When you first sit down a basket of fresh pastries is brought to your table. You pay for what you take out of the basket. We had the chocolate croissant and it was flaky, buttery perfection. As for entrees, my boyfriend had the scrambled eggs which were perfect every time. He raved about the fresh squeezed orange juice and it was delicious. I tried the eggs benedict one morning, scrambled eggs another and quiche on the last day. Everything I had was wonderful.
Breakfast typically ran about $30 total and service was very friendly but not very fast.
This is one of those places you miss going to your first morning back from vacation.

At the location off Airport Road, it can be a little tricky to get in and out of the parking lot. However, it's worth it...the blueberry muffins, raisin danish and chocolate croissants were heavenly! Bring your cash - they don't accept credit cards.

We heard good things about Zee Best but were disappointed. The staff had an attitude and the food was just ok. The pastry basket they give you when you sit down is impressive but dont be fooled, you are charged per pastry. You can find better croissants at Bon Appetit in the Simpson Bay Resort and Marina.

We enjoyed our breakfast at Zee Best. Crepes were delicious as was the almond croissant french toast. If you are looking for a breakfast spot, this is it! Dont forget to bring in your 10% off coupon - most car rental places and coupon books include one.
