My lovely little cafe, Chez Delphine is situated in downtown Philipsburg, we serve a wonderful variety of French/Caribbean cuisine. I also mix a mean cocktail and the healthiest, natural, fresh fruit smoothies, using only fruit – no concentrate – you can create your own mixures like mango and banana or strawberry and pineapple.
St Maarten/St Martin a jewel in the Caribbean Sea. More culturally diverse that any other island being half French and half Dutch. The two capitals Philipsburg and Marigot could not be more different in architecture, culture and inhabitants although both have a beautiful beach and both teem with tourists visiting the local shops and restaurants. Chez Delphine is an oasis for not only tourists but many locals who love our menu, my home made Passion fruit Rum, the smoothies and of course, the panorama.
Chez Delphine is a French cafe in the Dutch capital, sitting pretty on the boardwalk where you can either take a seat under a shaded cabana surrounded by palm trees with your feet resting in the cool white sand or inside the open planned, brightly coloured cafe. Outside or in you have a clear view of the bay and all the people. Its a perfect people watching corner.
I chose this delightful spot because it seemed the perfect place to rest in the shade, refresh and contemplate the life of Great Bay. Perfect for watching the boats, Pelicans, Frigate birds and tourists whilst sipping and supping. Everday is different and exiting. We have many old customers who return year after year while on thier annual cruise or staying in time share apartments.
The menu I have created mixes Caribbean ingredients and French knowhow. We have standard classics for all tastes from Croque Monsieur, Hamburgres, Butterfly Shrimp and Calamaris if you just want a snack. Fresh Mahi-Mahi Caribbean styley, Grilled whole Red Snapper and delicious Garlic Shrimp are just some of the main course fish dishes. If you have never tasted tender Chicken breast and coconut sauce then you haven’t lived.
