Had our first breakfast here. My love of chocolate croissants needed to be fed and was not disappointed. The quiche were light and fluffy and tasted great. Would recommend.

Food and coffee was good if your used to Starbucks quality, you would enjoy your meal. The view was the best experience. The selection was wide, prices were fair, but what held me back was the lack of any sort of taste in the coffee and the croissants. My 4 yr old even knew the croissant was lacking, and it... More

Heard a lot about this bakery but was disappointed. Not a big selection and the same things would be in the case day after day. It satisfied my sugar craving but didn't go back.

Sat outside & had a delicious cheesecake w/ this fruit layer over the top. Also bought 2 croissants to go! While you dine the scent of fresh bread fills the air! Yummy!!

I went here a few times early around 7:30 am and loved the pastries. We sat on the patio out back which is right on the water. They serve a great cappuccino as well. Definitely get there early because parking is tight and they're very popular with local restaurants and the public in general. Well worth the trip!

The next time we came for breakfast and had some great pastries at a very reasonable price. Had to grab a couple loaves of bread on... More

This is a great place for breakfast. Order a bunch of things for all to try and sit out on the back deck and watch the boaters on the bay. The coffees are good too.

Delicious to the point of insidious! French bakery deliciousness, baguettes, croissants, sweet breads, fresh squeezed orange juice, great sandwiches (big enough for most couples) You've been amply warned now! Enjoy! :)

We went to the French Bakery almost every day of our seven day visit. We purchased breakfast treats and desserts. Our friends got one of the cakes as well for a special occasion. I've never seen so many delicious treats in one place in my life. They also had a full case even in the afternoons. So they had bakers... More

It's in the Cole Bay area, facing Simpson Bay Lagoon, in Cole Bay, Sint Maarten. La Sucrière on the french side is not related to us. It is a different company with a different management.
