Right away Lyman made us feel so welcome, had a few cocktails and appetizers. Both were excellant! There was a nice breeze, good company and... More

We stopped by before our flight and had drinks at the bar. Before we left it felt like Lyman(owner) the three random guys and we were old pals catching up! They ordered food and it looked and smelled delicious. Our flight was terribly delayed and this little gem definitely saved the day! Next time we are in Vieques we are... More

We had a few minutes to kill before a short flight from Vieques to Ceiba and stumbled upon this adorable little place for a snack and ended up with one of the best airport meals ever. The fresh, jumbo peel and eat shrimp were amazing as was... More

We waited for our flight at Isla Nena Café. It didn't seem to trouble anyone that we were just sitting there for a few hours. The lunch we had was very good and much more than I could eat. It was wonderful to have numerous vegetarian choices!

Just finished eating breakfast here while waiting for our flight. Marisol made the BEST omelette. Oh my. And Rosie was fantastic. Even if you have no reason to be at the airport, make a special trip to eat here. You'll love it.
