“Power up with "Banana Dang" before the dawn patrol!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I rang in the new year by powering up with a "Purple-bowl" simple mix of Acai berries and crunchy granola with cranberries, and an espresso, before hitting the waves in Rincon with the guys at Rincon Surf School (see my previous review). I would recommend 3 things for your to-do list for your next trip to Rincon, Puerto Rico: 1) Don't leave home without it!...your American Express card, that is...2) Don't pass go, or collect $200 USD, before making a fuel stop for some much needed caffeine, banana enhanced blended smoothies or other munchies at this world-class establishment. 3) Do pass on all your positive surf/beach inspired smiles and love to all of the beautiful people in Rincon and environs in your travels.

“Great place for morning smoothie and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We stopped each morning (except Xmas Eve and Xmas when they were closed) on our 10 day stay in Rincon. Highly recommend the café con leche.
