I ate breakfast here several times during my vacation during April 2017. The croissants are really good as well as the cappuccinos and lattes. I also ate lunch here and had a crepe.

Breakfast, lunch, light dinner, or a quick sweet fix go no further than The Taste Factory. They have everything. Quiche, baguette sandwiches, all types of wonderful homemade French pastry. A place worth visiting several times while on the island.
