We spent a few days in Simpson Bay area and every day we found a reason to go to the Taste Factory. This morning we grabbed some coffee and croissants to go before we took a bus to Marigot. On the way back we stopped for the after 5pm special, buy 2, get one free (there are 3 of us). The coffee is wonderful, the croissants are wonderful, the pastries - we have tried just about every last one - all of them, wonderful. The curry chicken sandwich - OMG, try it! Great service, great music, nice, comfortable atmosphere, we were honestly here at least 2 times a day. Magnifique!

Great place if you are looking for simple and tasty late breakfast which fill you for, at least, until dinner. Omelets are perfect and come with fried potatoes and toasts, espresso is one of the best. Also, they have great choice of French pastries and cakes, and you can buy them all day long or after 5 pm with special deal to indulge with tea at home.

I wish we had found this place sooner! The pastries were fabulous! We bought sandwiches to-go to eat on the beach which were delicious as well.

Best. French. Bakery. Ever....on an island. We visited this beautiful shop every morning for pastries and coffee, and we were never disappointed. In fact, each day we were even more impressed than the day before. If you're a fan of French pastries, this shop should be first on your list of places to visit in Simpson Bay.
