We had tasty breakfasts on three occasions whilst staying nearby. The menu caters for both sweet and savoury tastes offering fresh pastries, fruit and waffles or delicious looking omelettes amongst other things. The staff were so friendly and the prices very reasonable.

This is one of our favorite places on the island for a breakfast treat. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The coffee and pastries are wonderful and the views are amazing. We eat plenty of calories then spend the day burning them off. If you are near Simpson Bay- you must come here.The locals do so it must be good!

We had lunch here 2 different times because we loved it so much. I had a savory crepe the first time and a salad with panko breaded and fried goat cheese the next time. Both were delicious. The only caution is that it takes quite awhile for the food to arrive, so only go if you have plenty of time.... More

I visited Zee Best for breakfast. The staff was friendly. Food was average and the location is convenient. Nothing fancy.

great place for breakfast, we only went once for breakfast and ordered the yoghurt fruit and granola. It was outstanding and very satisfying. They brought out a basket of pastries which were left on the table and you paid for what you eat. what a great enterprising idea to sell pastries. We went for lunch but was a little late... More

Excellent bakery and omelettes. Service was slow. They were busy and seemed understaffed. However they acknowledged and thanked us for our patience. Food was worth the wait.
