My wife and I ate there today - the food was good for a breakfast / lunch joint. I had the Ham & Cheese Croissant, which you can't go wrong with, then they add in bechamel sauce, this just sends it over the edge - really very tasty. My wife had the Banana croissant french toast, she would not recommend... More

Zee Best's croissants and baguettes are not the best. They're much better at Cafe Atlantico, but Zee Best is a pleasant place for breakfast. Service is friendly. Their vegetarian crepe is very nice and the coffee is good.

This is the place to go for croissants...made fresh daily. Also the best breakfast on the island! We travel to St. Maarten every year and never miss having breakfast here. The almond/chocolate croissants are to die for!

Went for breakfast . Waited for a long time before order was taken, then they put a basket of pastries down on our table. Told us later that we were charged for pieces eaten. Service was very slow. Was not interested I going there again.

Zee Best is a breakfast and lunch place that has the best pastries on either the French or Dutch side. The almond croissants are the best I have ever eaten. They also serve excellent breakfasts with a variety of omelets and crepes to choose from.

With its central location and terrace the place attracts people (we were here for the regatta). They do very nice breakfast, I tried a variety of dishes (omelets, eggs benedict, muesli with yoghhurt and fruit). Their pastry is excellent. But all this is too expensive to go there every day for a normal budget. Unfortunately.

This is the place for a great breakfast. When you sit down you are given a basket of fresh made pastries. You only pay for what you eat. But you will want to take home what you don't finish. The omelets are wonderful, crepes are creative, and the French toast is delicious.

The savory crepes and French pastries are great. Service is friendly and coffee good. They accept cash only, no credit cards.

Ate here a couple of times. Nice breakfast selections and decent crepes. Prices were fair with gratuity added to the check. Quite a few locals ate there while we visited.
