We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Aguadilla. Since it was Good Friday there weren't many places open.

horrible, blankets had stains. plus they charge me an extra $100 as smoking fee and nobody smokes in the room. So they steal $100 from my account. dont waste your money here youn probably are going to get robbed too. dont worry about the crime of the island be careful of companies like El Buen Cafe.

After spending the night next door we headed across the street for breakfast. Was very good. You get a lot for the price. I had a breakfast sandwich and took 1/2 home. Coffee hit the spot.

Great place to eat. Inexpensive, good food, good selection. Take out or eat in. It is worth the stop to experience old school dining. Good service Dining room is not sophisticated or up-to-date, but does the job.
