Upon my second visit to the island of Sint Maarten-Saint Martin, I was pleased to find that so many more businesses were open! Unknowingly, I had last gone during the off season when, apparently, very few bakeries actually make macarons. I am pleased to report back that there were so many more opportunities for French macarons this time around!
During my travels, I happened upon this great bakery. Le Divin is a French Bakery located in the Port de Marigot, on the French side of the island. They have a lot of open space with seating, a lovely view of the port, view of the market, and most importantly, French macarons! The staff was delightful and I enjoyed the macarons and look forward to visiting again!
The flavors of macarons that I tried were strawberry and vanilla.
Strawberry: This macaron was sweet with a nice soft cookie. I was filled with a with a delicious buttercream filling. I liked that it was delicate but didn't fall apart. The macarons were not as smooth visually as I am used to seeing, but they sure were tasty.
Vanilla: This macaron had a soft shell, yummy buttercream and was very buttery. I really felt there was a great filling-to-cookie ratio.
Who should go there: If you are visiting the island, then you will surely also be visiting Marigot. In this case, you should go there! It's spacious, full of delicious French pastries and a variety of French macarons for an extremely good price.
I'll definitely be stopping back to try: Pistachio and chocolate
