This small place is located just outside Los Corales in Punta Cana.....a two minute walk past Dannys Sports Bar for those of you that are familiar with the area. Bonnie is a very pleasant Canadian woman who serves the best breakfasts in town. Combine that with a great selection and variety of gelato and lunch you have a family friendly... More

Okay so we are back in Punta Cana and we head off to see If Bonnie and Diego are still here. Yes they are, and the traditional. Canadian Breakfast tastes just the way we remembered. The chicken salad sandwich on the home style bread is still great. The big draw is the gelato which is store made on location in... More

While the owner was very nice, the gelato was not good. Both mine and my friends had freezer burn. It also was more like ice cream rather the gelato. I'd rather have Hagen Das that I believe someone told me is next to super pola. Also found it to be gross that as soon as we got our gelato, the... More

I am really sorry that your gelato tasted freezer burnt. You should have told me. We did have a problem with the back freezer and had to store it overnight at another location until the freezer was fixed. It is now obvious, there was some melting and refreezing which would have formed ice crystals. I really wished you had of... More

Bonnie is best . Very nice and excellent service. Must try the expresso over Baileys Gelato. She serves breakfast and lunch, all is good. And if you are in need of a book she keeps a nice collection for exchanges. You are always greeted with a smile.

I have probably been to Chiquita Bonita's close to 10 times on my 12 day vacation to DR. The owner Bonnie is very friendly and helpful with everything. The breakfast is always excellent, the French Toast in particular. The gelato choices range from vanilla to orange chocolate to blueberry, all of which are awesome. The bang for the buck is... More

Found this nice clean joint and liked the look of it and then discovered the owner was Canadian! Lovely welcome and really yummy ice cream. The kids would have tried every flavour if we let them. The food looked good too, so worth a visit if in this area.

Bonnie, the Canadian owner, is friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel at home. Diego, her assistant, is handsome and charming Haitian man that speaks at least three languages (French, Spanish, and English -- probably more). The ice cream is divine (ask for the dairy-free sorbet if you need that option -- I did, and they... More

Great little place in Punta Cana. Definitely a "must go" for breakfast. Bonnie, the owner, is friendly and helpful. We wanted to explore more of the city and she helped us out with places to go and things to see that we wouldn't experience on the resort. Make sure to fit in a visit to this restaurant whether for gelato... More

great food and an all day breakfast for you late risers.One of the more interesting things is that this place has a book exchange. Take your books that you have read and exchange trhem for books you have not read. one for opne. They also have many foreign lanquage books.

Chickeeta Bonita's (the correct spelling) is a nice little restaurant next to El Dorado Plaza, Cortecito Beach (Bavaro), DR. The Canadian owner was very friendly, as was the assistant manager who spoke 4 languages, including English. Breakfast included pancakes, omelets, bacon, toast, etc. Lunch included light fare sandwiches. The gelato selection had 18 or 20 choices. Prices for breakfast dishes... More
