“French pastry and breakfast....tres magnifique!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

This small bakery, tucked in behind the front stores on the main road in Cole Bay, is our favorite breakfast place while in St. Maarten. The pastries are fantastic, and while you are given a full basket of them, you only pay for what you eat! Just TRY to not finish the basket. Their breakfast crepes and omelets are tremendous. We truly blame Zee Best for our weight gain when we visit St. Maarten! You must, must, must visit!

“Ok food alright service. Be sure you have the lunch coupon for half off entree”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The food was average and and the service was not too friendly. Before you go make sure you get one of the free mega coupons with the half off entree for lunch coupon in it. That made the lunch decent but if we paid full price it wouldn't have been great value.

“Almost like Paris”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We had brunch here and the crepes were almost as good as the ones I had in Paris. They have a large selection of crepe fillings, so you can find something to suit everyone. Mimosas and café mocha was good too.

“Great French toast!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Great breakfast spot, reasonable prices. This is a regular stop for us. Outdoor seating and convenient location. Eggs benedict is also a good breakfast. Just be careful tip is included in you bill.
