There are two Zee's Best locations in the area- Simpson bay is the sit down restaurant, Airport road is takeout only. We ended up visiting both this morning in search of our meal and were rewarded handsomely! Extensive breakfast menu with something for everyone. The place was packed when we arrived just before 9:30. Covered patio with a breeze flowing... More

Our group of 4 (including a vegetarian) ate breakfast here twice during our week on St. Maarten. With one vegetarian and one non-egg eater, we are hard to please but Zee Best did not disappoint! The French toast was divine and unlike anything I've had before. Make sure you take cash, no credit cards accepted!

For the last 10-15 years, they have upheld the Name from Roger (the Canadian who was in Marigot, since God spoke to Moses), and He would be proud. From the Coffee & Pastries in the basket, to Breakfast in all forms (I've not had a lunch there, for no particular reason). Good food, friendly & prompt service, good price for... More

Although the place was almost empty it took them a while to take and prepare our order . Besides that the results were highly appreciated and enjoyed. The fresh baguettes were filled with layers and layers of tasty meats and cheeses . A good job.

Nice place for breakfast that we've visited many times over the years. Hubby likes the pancakes and fresh OJ. I go for the omelettes which are huge. Skip the potatoes-they taste like they're made from frozen. Expect it to be busy based on the season and the time you go. The waitresses usually hustle, but service can be slow. Don't... More

Great breakfast but they need more waitresses! Those girls worked but service was slow because they were short handed. Food was good. Don't know if I like the bowl of pastries - you pay for what you eat idea? What do they do with the ones touched but Not eaten? Yeh, next....omg
