Our Standard "first morning" on the island stop. Coffee & a pastry & sitting out back on the patio overlooking the Bay. A slice of heaven, especially, when you've just come from sub-freezing weather. BTW, among the island's 2 or 3 TOP Bakeries for Desserts to take home for After-dinner, with coffee. Ditto for the Bread!! (Great, Free Wi-Fi as... More

We have been to St Maarten several times now, and on years when we have decided not to order food on the plane for the flight home, La Sucriere is our go-to spot for sandwiches to take with us. This year however, we decided to stop in and have coffee and treats instead. There is a nice selection of both... More

We always stop on our way to return our rental car at La Sucriere. It's one of our vacation rituals. They have amazing sandwiches and tasty sweet treats. I ordered a coffee and spotted a lone lemon tart sitting in the expanse of sweet delights behind the glass. I am a sucker for key lime or lemon delights and where... More

Great modern café with excellent choice of omelets, crepes, and pastries. If you look for tasty but still inexpensive breakfast, no need to look for anything else. Omelets are cooked with your choice of ingredients such as ham, prosciutto, mushrooms, cheese, etc. Same with French (or Belgian) style crepes - you can't be wrong with your choice. Pastries deserve to... More

I'm that one person who just couldn't find anything I liked on this island, except for this place. It has amazing pastries, really good coffee, and French-style sandwiches for lunch. The prices are reasonable too.

Excellent breads and pastries. Also some breakfast fare, (sandwiches made on baguette). A pleasure to sit and enjoy a coffee, and a pastry on the deck over looking the lagoon.

It might be just me but the order/pay line seems to move so slow? Once we order and get our grub it is pretty good. The Iguana in the table area on this day was entertaining. Enjoy!

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.
