Whether you are flying out or flying in this is a great spot to stop. It is right at the airport and outside. They have a regular American menu and on special days they have real Chinese food made by the owner's wife. My grandson from the states was raving about the Chinese dumplings. Everything I have had there is... More

A hidden gem located in the Vieques airport parking lot. Delicious omelettes (great size - 3+ eggs loaded with cheese and bacon) sandwiches, fresh coffee. Not only breakfast food but they can also make many other lunch/dinner entree at anytime of the day. You'd never expect to find such a taste if you judt drove by.

This was a great quick lunch before our flight back to San Juan. The bartender/owner seemed really nice; I wish we had sat at the bar to chat with him more. His wife makes homemade dumplings which were quite nice (we had the steamed veggie ones). We also had the fish sandwich, which was good. I think we missed out... More

This place is the best surprise in Vieques. It's a small bar on the airport parking that you would never thing had brilliant food. But it most certainly does. The owner and his wife are extremely nice and the food is phenomenal.

This cute little outdoor cafe at the airport has some really killer food! The breakfast sandwich is served on a big delicious sesame bun and the scrambled eggs were light and fluffy and there was an ample amount of bacon! They have some of the best bartenders on the island too! The sporty chick with dark hair made a killer... More

We have drinks here a lot but this time we eat lunch. The service is awesome here. The food is even better. I ordered Blue Moon and she keep them coming. The food was great but the rice it came with was out of this world. We will make this a lunch spot for many trips to come.

We had some time to kill between check out and our flight so we decided to spend it here at the Isla Nena Café. The owner was a really nice guy and his wife is the chef. The food was good but a little pricey. On the other hand, if you look at it as airport food, it was way... More

At this cafe, they usually have two options for breakfast: eggs+meat of choice+toast or an egg sandwich. Both times we got the egg+cheese+ham sandwich because they are delicious!!! Made on the fresh air-rise bread, they always hit the spot. Lunch looked really great too!
