This is the best place for breakfast in Aruba. The dutch pancakes, or what we call crepes, are unbelievable. The prices are very resonable and the crepes are open-faced, loaded with your choice of toppings, and are as big as your normal sized dinner plate. The staff has always been very friendly and the outdoor Aruban air in the morning is quite refreshing. Our favorites are the peach crepes and the costa del sol. Fantastic. I cannot wait to go back tomorrow!

We've eaten here many times over the years. The quality and service have always been constant. The best waitress ever, Charissa, has always been very friendly and attentive. Each trip to Aruba, includes plans to visit the restaurant again and again. We actually look forward to going back to see Charissa each time. Her beautiful smile and congeniality certainly enhance the dining experience. A must try the next time you're in Aruba and be sure to ask for Charissa, for a cordial, friendly welcome.

I don't normally like crepes, but all 6 of us ordered one, and I have to say each one was different and fantastic. Would eat here again in a second for a quick breakfast.

The crepes were very good and at a very reasonable price to the hotel breakfast but I found the service to be poor. The waitress didn't write anything down and our order was completely mixed up.

This place is right in the Renaissance marketplace, with outdoor seating only. They are probably one of the cheapest breakfasts in Aruba. They serve crepes of every flavor both sweet and savory that are as big as a pizza. They're small plate of silver dollar pancakes are my favorite, crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle served with butter and a lot of powdered sugar. They also sell schnitzels as well. The price is extremely good for what you're getting, my 14 pieces of silver dollar pancakes was only $4. I rate it only 3 stars because you can only get crepes, the silver dollars, and schnitzels there, nothing else on the menu like an American pancake house but what they do serve is excellent at an excellent price. They open every day at 8:00 am, except for Mondays now because they said they are short staffed.
