Lorient,

St. Bart's,

La Petite Colombe, a neighborhood patisserie in Lorient (with locations in Gustavia and Colmbier, too), specializes in freshly baked breads and pastries including French baguettes, croissants, and pain au chocolat (a croissant-like pastry with chocolate). The bakery’s sandwiches, which range from ham and cheese to curried chicken salad, frequently sell out well before noon as breakfast patrons often pick up their lunch for the day in addition to their morning pastry and coffee. A small enclosed patio is adjacent to the bakery for those who prefer to dine in.
