Omelettes ranging from $5-$8.50, tons of breakfast sandwiches, crepes & other delish day starters. Total win for a relative hole in the wall-we'll be back!

We ate here multiple times during our recent stay in St Maarten and loved it every time. We tried something different each time we ate there and was never disappointed. We can't wait to try more on our next trip to St Maarten! The employees were very friendly and we loved the option of sitting outside, even though it didn't... More

Great pastries and delicious sandwiches! I love the pastrami sandwich and the grilled chicken sanwich. Almost all the sandwiches are made on their home made fresh baguettes. They also have paninis, crepes and omelettes. The bakers are a very friendly family that will greet you whether in the bakery or outside on the road.

I ate here almost every day, the breakfast and service were amazing. Also, the food is not expensive, so if you are staying in a hotel that does not serve breakfast this is the best place to eat.

Was recommended to stop by for breakfast and were very happy we did. Great options with fabulous food. Would have loved to try them for lunch, will do that next time - so many options in town, hard to go back to the same spot. Overall highly recommend this spot, it is closed on Sunday's even though the sign says... More

Usually stop by and order sandwiches to take on the flight home. Hasn't disappointed yet. Plenty of sweets to choose from.

We tried Cafe Atlantico this morning for first time in our four years of coming to Simpson Bay. It was outstanding and we are sorry to have waited this long. All those missed breakfasts! I had the Mediterranean omelet (black olives, sun dried tomatoes and cheese). It came with a small side salad and warm (warm!!) sliced French bread and... More

This café was recommended by a local. I went there on Sunday morning but it was closed even though the sign on the door said it was open on Sundays. So I tried again on Monday! This is a small place but has ample seating. There were lots of people coming in to buy bread. I tried a crepe. It... More
