El Carey was so good that my wife and I ate breakfast there twice and she had mangu both times. Don't miss out on the smoothies either.

After reading all the great reviews decided to try it for breakfast on way to beach - best decision! Breakfast is served all day and was very good with fantastic coffee. The staff is very friendly. It is on the main road Rte 4466 so definitely stop in!

We went on a Monday for breakfast and were so glad we did. The food was good and the smoothies were delicious. My husband doesn't like eggs, and they were happy to hold them on his order of pancakes. Their homemade sauce was really good. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed for the rest of our time in... More

My family and I went here for breakfast. The place have excellent options. We ordered the omelette with toast, and two venezuelan style arepas with ham, egg and cheese. All the food was delicious! Highly recommended place.

I don't think I ever truly lived until I had breakfast at El Carey. I had the breakfast arepa (with El Carey's special hot sauce) and Oreo pancakes (yes, I ate both, don't judge me...). Everything was fresh and delicious, and the staff was attentive and friendly. I came back for a fresh fruit smoothie the following day and was,... More
