You can get burgers, quesadillas, etc. here. Reasonable prices for an island cafe. It's outside but covered, and adjacent to the airport. We ordered at the bar and the food was delivered to our table.

I've never been so happy to have a delayed flight. We hung out at this unassuming, very friendly bar for an hour or so before heading back to the main island. We were drawn in by the Packers signage, but really enjoyed the drinks and the amazingly relaxed setting. My family enjoyed the beef tamales, cheese quesadilla, and awesome dumplings.... More

Somehow trying to avoid watching the inauguration I ended up here - eating delicious fried pork dumplings watching the stupid inauguration. Delicious dumplings - place is pretty overpriced but after snorkeling at Mosquito Pier their cold beer and really good dumplings hit the spot. Also stopped for breakfast - while guy is super nice and there is no other option... More

I had the best time here- watched 2 of the Packer's play off games with Lyman (the owner) who is a super fan, originally from Green Bay Wisconsin. I should mention that there were people supporting the other teams there as well. Lots of joking, fun, and good sportsmanship. Even the bird was cool (forgot his name) I had some... More

The unique and tasty home made bread is pressed which is a Puerto Rican tradition !!! The staff was very friendly and quick to take your order!! This cafe also has the coldest... More

We went to this place just because it was next to the airport. Please don't repeat our mistake. This place is everything you shouldn't expect in Vieques. First, the food is tasteless at best. We tried the wraps, the chicken salad, and the empanadas and felt conned after comparing it with food from everywhere else. Second, the attention is awful.... More

We landed here at around 3 PM. this restaurant/café/bar is right outside the airport on the 2nd level - we picked up a rental car from a nearby rental place and we wanted to get a drink to get our vacation started. The owner was very hospitable and friendly. Fantastic and warm genuine service. We asked for a rum based... More

Stopped in about 8:30 was welcomed by Limon (sp) who has been there for 20 years. Ordered breakfast and cocktail, why not last day of vacation. Bacon, eggs and cheese on a roll was delish and filling! Food great, drinks cold and easy to load onto your hopper! Thanks again!
