This bakery/restaurant is always on our list of places to visit every trip to St Maarten. The breakfast croissants and lunch sandwiches are incredible. Reasonably priced, delicious, and friendly service. What more can you ask for.

So YUM. Everything I have here is so good. Feels like Paris. My very favorite are The whole grain croissants. You have to get them early because they always sell out.
