Vera Lucia has an awesome and humble staff, they take care of you as if you had come over their home to have... More

We just love this place. We found this little gem last year and enjoyed it so much that we were looking forward to going back this year. Not only is the food great and all home made, but the owners Vera and Rick are such wonderful people. When we made it back again this year, to our surprise, Vera remembered... More

Nice little spot on 1st avenue between 26th & 28th on the way to Mamita's Beach. Good service, very clean & good food. Mainly a breakfast & lunch spot as their evening hours seem to vary.

Vera and her sister produce pastries that are wonderful and an ambiance that is worth the walk. It's off the beaten path, but well worth it. Take a morning walk and find Vera Lucia's, you won't be disappointed!
