We had breakfast here and it was very good. We had to wait for about 15 minutes for a table but we arrived at 10 a.m. so couldn't expect anything else. The service was attentive and the food delicious. I had the country pancake and my husband had the seaboard special. He couldn't say enough good things about the poffertjes! He wanted to order more (he has a sweet tooth) but admitted that he was beyond full. Both meals were huge so don't think of ordering anything extra unless you can eat a lot!

I would definitely go back again and try other items. The only reason for not getting a top rating was because I wasn't blown away. More like 4.5!

For years, we have liked having Dutch pancakes in Aruba...both sweet and savory. However, it was during a cruise stop in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada that we discovered poffertjes (small, puffed, silver-dollar pancakes) served hot with butter and powdered sugar. I suppose they might have been on the menu in Aruba for years, but trying them in Canada meant that we would look for them in Aruba.
3 of us did that after a shopping excursion trip to downtown Oranjestad in late September. We were hot and tired and decided lunch was in order. Our selections were more like breakfast. In fact, two of us ordered the Seaport Breakfast...scrambled eggs, choice of bacon or sausage, 2 home-fry patties, a half-dozen poffertjes, toast and jam. $12. The last member of the group just ordered poffertjes that were served with small dishes of whipped cream, ice cream, some kind of custard-like treat....and butter. $8. All were enjoyed. I think we were a little dehydrated, so all had ice water. Team service was prompt and polite. This is outdoor dining and it was warm, but in the shade at the corner of their location, there was the pleasant Aruba breeze. We'll look forward to it another year. We might even consider making poffertjes at home as a winter holiday treat.
