I found out about this local spot from reading other people recommendations for a local breakfast. The recommendations were right on point. Hilmas food is so tasty. Good way to start of the day. The saltfish and Johnny cakes were amazing. The saltfish patties were also great. The price was great for the food. We brought extra Saltfish patties to... More

My favorite breakfast spot hands down! This is literally a small trailer where this one lady cooks up the best Johnny Cake and salt fish I've ever tasted! I truly wish I could eat from this place every day. The prices are very good, super reasonable. They also have these salt fish patties that are to die for! Soooooo good!... More

Hilma's was recommended to us so we squeezed in a visit on our way to the airport on our way home. This was well worth the effort. We both had a Johnny Cake. My was a sausage, egg and cheese with Hilma's special sauce! Wow, Hilma sure knows how to put together a Johnny Cake! Two Johnny Cakes and two... More

Heard about this place from a friend. Honestly if you saw the place you wouldn't stop. Its a jacked up old caravan in a parking lot next to a bank - KNOW this - you MUST stop, the food is fantastic. Hilma makes the best pasties and Johnny Cake sandwiches. We got a salt cake pasty, a chicken pasty and... More

We have been picking up take-out lunches from Hilma for years and her offerings are the real deal! Park where you can and get your lunch early before she sells out of the favorites! Also a great spot to park your butt on her counter stools and have lunch with an ice cold beer or two.

Finally had the chance to go there on our last day, and the only thing I regret was not going there earlier in the trip! Everything was so yummy, but my favorite was the salted cod Johnny cakes, (salmon and herring was delicious too) and we even got 10 sandwiches to take with us on our flight that night. (They...

Great food cart in a high traffic area. Stopped by Hilmas one morning and it was delicious. I'm not exactly sure what I got because it was 3 years ago but everything was amazing and inexpensive. I wish I would have had time to stop there again but it was a shorter trip. If I'm ever in St. Martin again... More

I am so glad that we were persistent in looking for this place. As another poster mentioned, the name has faded off the awning and nobody seemed to have heard of Hilma's! It is situated next to a bank shortly after crossing the bridge from Simpson Bay, heading towards the airport. (On the left) Hilma is a sweet lady and... More

After Anthony Bourdain made it a highlight of his trip, we made it our first stop after landing at Juliana airport. It took a bit of work to find – the name on the awning has long since faded and even locals don’t know it by its name. But in a bank parking lot, across from the Rancho steakhouse, on... More
