Every morning, I'd go for a run and hike up tough hills, then run down to the Taste Factory for my chocolate/almond croissant - heavenly bliss,.

The taste factory has a nice selection of pastries and if you go in during happy hour they are only 6 for $6! Makes for a quick breakfast the following morning. I also purchased a sandwich to eat on the plane and it was delicious.

Best decent salad on Dutch side. Service gets better if they know you. Unfortunately got overcharged $10 on my card. Order the same thing every time and price changes every time.

All of the French pastries and breakfast meals are great. Freshly make at a reasonable price, especially late in the day. An easy walk from major hotels.

There is so much to choose from that your taste buds will want everything. Their tuna sandwiches are made with real, not canned tuna and are excellent. Their ham & cheese panini is good. The desserts speak for themselves. I always have to stop at least once on our trip. They also have another store in Cupecoy called The Little... More

I had a caramel frappe ($5) and it was pretty good. Not something to brag to friends but then again not horrible at all. We loved how quiet and clean the inside was and I'm sure we will be back to try other items on the menu.
