Try La Cana instead, next door

I went looking for this place in February 2014... it's not there anymore. Luckily, instead, we found a small little ice cream shack called La Cana. This place has the most wonderful carribean flavors of ice cream and sorbet I've tasted! Sour Sop, Guava, Coconut, papaya, PR Cherry. We were in... read more

It was such a relief to find a vegan restaurant while staying in El Yunque at the Rainforest Inn. We tried many items on the menu and everything was absolutely amazing. The ginger beer and kombucha was excellent as well as the desert. My wife and I really enjoyed meeting and talking to the owner Skai. Its a small place... More

My wife and I are vegetarians and were staying at the Wyndham Rio Mar in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, which has overpriced and mediocre vegetarian food at best. So making an evening reservation and taking a trip to Roots & Fruits was an excellent experience: the best, freshest food we ate on our trip, and the least expensive meal also... More

We ate at Roots & Fruits twice while on our vacation. I was so happy to find vegan food - especially vegetables which are lacking at most restaurants. Fresh juice & Ginger beer were excellent. For entrees we had falafel, a curry sqaush with veggies, chick peas, & quinoa. Also black bean chili. Everything was excellent & the owner has... More

We just spent Christmas in Puerto Rico with our family of nine, two of whom are vegetarian. We met Skai on a quick stop on our way back from the rainforest and she mentioned she would be making a special Christmas dinner. We called to see if she would make dinner at a time later than she's normally open and... More

We went to Roots and Fruits twice - their fresh juices are excellent and fresh. For lunch, we had Falafal wraps - two large falafal patties with lots of greens and a really tasty sauce (we had the spicy sauce, but they also have a non-spicy basil sauce). It's wrapped in a tortilla - it's large enough that it would... More

My wife, 15 year-old son and i are visiting Puerto Rico (we're from Maryland) for the first time. We are all vegans, and were very worried about locating restaurants that could accomodate our diet....we have heard that the restaurants use a lot of animal ingredients (lard and bacon) and do not tell the truth (or don't know) when you ask...
