“Very nice lunch place”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

Well located on a side alley off the main drag, this place offers very tasty sandwiches and salads. Very casual outside sitting. Very good espresso. The only thing I wish they did is to clean up the area right outside the cafe (it may not belong to them, though)

“Great for breakfast or lunch”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

We visited there three times for a light lunch (baguettes, bagels, salads), as there aren't many restaurants around serving lunch. All their stuff is as fresh as it gets. They also serve breakfast till 11.

“Very refreshing, light meal - great for divers!”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

This place is located right in downtown Kralendjik, on Kaya Grandi. Having done so much diving over the past few days, I was ready for something fairly mild and refreshing, not too heavy or acidic, and we found that at Boudoir. I would definitely go back here for lunch; it was a nice, relaxing interlude in the midst of 6 days of hardcore diving.

I ordered the tuna salad sandwich, which was so refreshing and light! There were bits of Granny Smith apple mixed in with the tuna salad, which added a nice crunch and fruitiness to every bite. I enjoyed this very much, and at $8.95 for the salad, it wasn’t too ungodly expensive for Bonaire.

The tuna salad was served on a white bagel, though I had the option of having it on a baguette. I also ordered a side salad, which I didn’t take a photo of, unfortunately. It was served in a large seashell, and it was probably the best salad I’ve ever had. The lettuce was very crisp and fresh and cut into small pieces. The dressing was light, but had an excellent flavor. This restaurant does simple food very, very well.

My husband ordered the brie cheese sandwich for $8.50.

He chose to have his sandwich on a whole-grain baguette. He wished that the bacon had been strips, instead of tiny crumbles, since it was such good bacon. He said that the bread was nice and soft, and the sandwich was very large, so was a good value for the price. It was simple and nice and, he says, “Just what I needed at that time.” He also had a side of potato chips for $2.50.

The total price for 2 sandwiches, a bowl of chips, and a side salad was $24.95. We would definitely go back to Boudoir again.

“Excellent for breakfast, lunch or coffee”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

Small casual Eurpoean bakery/restaurant with outdoor seating. Open for breakfast and lunch, coffee and icecream - I believe from 7am until 4pm at present.
Great spot for a lunchtime surface interval if diving for a soup, salad, panini or buger. They also have coffee (expesso, latte, cappacino etc. and cakes/pastry ).

On a recent dive trip, went there 4 times for lunchtime - ate the classic panini (toasted ham/cheese) which is about $8 a couple of times and also the one with pesto, brie and parma ham $9 - both execllent. along with lattes and capaccino (both about $3).

Also stopped in early a couple of times to make use of a special they had between 7am & 8am for $1 small coffee and a $1 small cheese sandwich - good to start the day on the way to an early dive.

This is the 2nd trip I've been here - different owners both times - both times very good, friendly service and economical. I'd highly recomment it.
