“Good Food; Convenient Location”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The Taste Factory has delicious treats including crepes (both breakfast and dessert varieties), delectable desserts and plenty of beverage choices. The staff is friendly and accommodating. They have excellent "happy hour" deals after 5:00 p.m. We stayed in St. Maarten for seven days and six nights, and enjoyed a treat from The Taste Factory just about every night. I highly recommend them.

“Amazing eggs!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Service is a little slow but so are most things on the island. The scrambled eggs were the best I have ever had.

There is only one menu and you have to ask for it if you don't want something from the gisplay cases but the eggs are totally worth it!

“Need to indulge?”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

The taste factory has lot's of deserts, bread and lunch items that will satisfy the craving. We had pastries that were worth every calorie and that is sometimes hard to say! The texture was perfection and the prices reasonable. The young person behind the counter was friendly and very helpful. Try not to return I dare you!!!!
