Best Croissants in Town

Croissant and Baguette are synonyms for France! When being on St. Martin, some things are very Caribbean, and some are very French. Don't miss the French favorites, and the best are in Marigot!

'La Sucriere' is located at the main street 'Boulevard de France' along the seaside, and it is worthwhile a trip around the island from time to time (at least for me). The croissants are unsurpassed! The breads, pain au chocolat (chocolate stuffed croissants), cakes, and tarts are equally good!

If you look for another nice breakfast and snack place, just 50 yards further north, same boulevard, look out for this great bakery and self service lunch place. They offer a great variety of food, pizzas, and pastries.

Both bakeries are favorites for sitting there at day time watching the active life at Marigot's waterfront with its colorful markets. New parkings between the market stands and the sea front were recently built, so finding a parking shouldn't be too difficult. Eat French, breathe Caribbean!
