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

It was around 2:00 pm and the owner, Diana, attended us like family. My wife asked for "arepas" and she went beyond... More

I absolutely love coming here. I have family that live in Isabela and every time we visit we go to this delicious cafe! My favorite is Saturday and Sunday the mongu with scrabbled eggs and veggies. The veggie rice bowls to die for and not to mention there out of this world smoothies with homemade granola. The fish is great.... More

First off the owners are so nice and the service is spectacular. My husband and I came across this place the last three days of our trip and would have come every day if we knew about it! My favorite was the breakfast bowl and we'd share the acai cup! We bought 3 bottles of the homemade sauce because it's... More

This is THE place to get your healthy dose of really delicious food in Isabela! Diana and Hector offer up amazing specials, like a perfectly executed rice bowl topped with egg, ham, and peppers that satisfies your palate along with your soul. You will fill up here (for little cash) in a way that is hard to find in the... More

We really enjoyed the breakfast here. They have great options (including acai fruit cups) and make their own sauces. Would definitely return!

We have been in Isabela for 2 months and have tried almost every restaurant. El Carey is by far our favorite!! We have come back over and over again because we can't seem to get enough. It's the perfect place for brunch or lunch. Our little girl loves the kids pancakes with sprinkles. Yum!!!
