First time here for breakfast and was not overly impressed. Nice offerings but scrambled eggs were full of egg shells. Pricey for eggs.

The pastries are outstanding and service is well above many as other places on the island. You will not go wrong at Zee Best for breakfast.

Okay breakfast place (down the street from Simpson Bay hotel) they have delicious danishes, croissants and omelets but that’s about it. I liked Bon Appetit a lot better!

We love the breakfast at Zee Best- especially the fresh croissants, which are some of the best on the island.

Lovely crepes, stuffed with quality fillings, cooked well. My only gripe is the basket of pastries they place on your table, you only pay for what you eat, not a problem but the flies love them and I don't want to eat something the flies have been on! If they could address this I would give them five stars!

Zee was close to our resort, so it was easy to make a quick run in the morning for coffee and baked goods. This is a quaint, full open air restaurant, but they’re known for their morning baked goods. I stress morning baked goods, because by late morning early afternoon, they’re gone. The place is kind of hidden, so look... More

We visit here at least once a trip, and are never disappointed. Relaxing, and not rushed. Breakfast is why we go. Crepes are marvelous, as well as any omelette. Enjoy!
