A great cup of Coffee. Disappointed I found this place on my last day in paradise. An assortment of pastries and sandwiches to satisfy your hunger. A nice quiet place to enjoy.

I arrived at the taste factory for breakfast with some friends. We seat down at a table and we waited for the waitress. After 10 minutes I got up and got my own menu and told the waitress that we were waiting to order. 10 more minutes pass and no one came. The place had only 3 other tables. The... More

We tried the Taste Factory for the first time this morning. The tall skinny girl behind the counter must have been in a bad mood or something. She never asked if we were dining in and put our pastries in a bag. I asked if I could have an ice water with my latte and she said that they only... More

I had breakfast here on the 17th and 18th October 2015. They make the most incredible pastries, the pain chocolat just simply melts in your mouth and the coffee au lait is just perfect. This place was so good I had to go back. Service is a bit on the low side but the food makes up for this. No... More

The Taste Factory is a great place to start your day or drop in for a nice lunch. They have a great breakfast menu and the lunch menu is filled with salads and sandwiches. They specialize in pastries, cakes, croissants and breads. This is a good place to stop and get a picnic lunch to take to the beach or... More

The me Eats are excellent and the French toast is a must try. For breakfast it is a little pricey, but the coffee cup is huge, and the rd worth the price

We have tired the sandwiches at the Taste Factory and do not find them tasty. They make sandwiches in advance and them heat them when you order them.

We went there twice while on vacation. The food is very good, the wait staff service is inadequate. Both times we went there, several people were behind the counter socializing and no one acknowledged us, We sat down at a table, waited a few minutes and finally had to go to the counter to request service. The place was not... More

My friends and I went here for brunch. The french toast was very good, as were the side of potatoes that I ordered. The interior is nice - modern, relaxing atmosphere. It is somewhat over priced in my opinion, as one of my friends ended up paying $15 in extras - the orange juice/bottled water was $5, the potatoes were... More
