“Must GO!!! Good Food and Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

we were recommended by someone a local we met at the supermarket same person who recommended El Batey. La Pista is on the left side of the road right after the airport on your way to flamenco beach. Its a cafe where the locals hang out at. First time we went we got 1/2 a chicken and 2 orders of rice and beans for $9. Which is cheap in Culebra. Next time we went right before our flight to San Juan at 7:30am, we got 2 ham and egg sandwich for $7. We need to support great local restaurants with excellent food.

“Home-cooked food, great service and sunny decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We stumbled upon La Pista after being in Culebra for a few days. It's a cafe along the highway across from the airport. All of the locals eat there and we know why. Their breakfast are super tasty, the service is quick (a first!) and well-priced. Once we found it, we ate there each morning. Their lunch has a number of items on a buffet/take-out basis and we ended up with fried chicken and some totally yummy side dishes. They make these type of Caribbean eggrolls with pork, chicken or cheese, and you can buy them for take-out and have them at beach! Even thought we acted like your typical goofy tourists, the young lady taking our food orders every day was unfailingly polite and her Mom (I think it was her Mom) does a mean plate of scrambled eggs and ham. It's a casual place, with plastic chairs and tables, but it's spotless and has a cute decor.
