Le Bon Pain
The French are known for their bread, flaky pastries, and decadent desserts. For a taste of sweet French pastry excellence, there’s nowhere better for a bite than Le Bon Pain. This French bakery in Island Harbour is not a secret; it’s a favourite with both locals and visitors. Who doesn’t love flaky chocolate croissants to go with a good cup of coffee?
Tropical Treats Fun House
From slushies and snow cones, to blueberry ice cream and soursop milkshakes, Tropical Treats Fun House is a smorgasbord of sweet stuff. Tropical Treat’s homemade ice cream can be found in supermarkets, but for the full experience the Fun House in George Hill is a must. The high quality ice cream churned out by Tropical Treats has made it an island favourite.
Hall’s Unique Bakery
The coconut tarts at Hall’s Unique Bakery are so good that Food Network star Alton Brown had to take a trip to Anguilla to give them a try. This bakery, located in the Valley, produces a variety of savoury and sweet items, but their coconut tarts are the star of the show.
Kel’s Candy & Ice Cream
Kel’s Candy & Ice Cream is the perfect place to forget about being an adult and just have fun like kid in a candy shop. Kelva Lindo, owner of Kel’s Candy & Ice Cream, has always been a lover of all things confectionery. Her shop in North Hill is a wonderful spot for families to enjoy ice cream, candy and other sugary treats.
