Our favorite location for almond croissant is Zee Best in Simpson Bay. Caf Atlantico is another on Airport Road and Sarafina's in Marigot. The plain croissant's at La Croissanterie in Marigot(sit down restaurant) are flaky and delicious. FB page.

I think Serafina's is the best but too far from Simpson Bay. We usually only make the trip once in three weeks.

Not exactly an answer for your question, but the Croissants (almond) we get from La Boutique at Club O are the best we have ever had. Perhaps someone knows who supplies them to La Boutique?

Another vote for La Croissanterie. Croissants, crepes, and also a nice place for lunch,


I'm going where the weather suits my clothes.

Yes, you are correct.Pain au chocolat is made of the same layered dough as a croissant. Often sold still hot or at least warm from the oven, they are commonly sold alongside croissants.

Any place I have ordered a "chocolate croissant", they seem to know what to serve.

The bakery on the road to Mont Vernon was closed in April and looked like it had been for some time.

Another vote for Artisan Bakery. They have some items that look too pretty to eat.

If you are traveling on the main road towards Orient, it is about a block or two past the road Yvettes is on, on the right.

We often stop there for sandwiches on the way to OB. They are good!
