“Best Batida and very good sandwiches!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Arrived at 12:00 and it was full! A lot of regional and young people from Condado where here!

Had a table out side for 4pax and very kindly offer me this table, I was alone !

Very friendly staff and suggestion are great!

I started with a Papaya and banana (mostly) batida called classica @ $4. They are very good on all kind of healthy fruit shaker!

And to eat had a very good toasted wrap stuffed with sweet pork (big peace)@ $11 and served with green chard, onions and... The "special" house sauce made with papaya! Just delicious ^^

Inside you will find max 3 or 4 tables and out side in the street may be 5 tables.
So take your time and don't be in the rush ;)

Also, they apparently don't split the bills!

“poor service”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is basically a small restaurant on a street that adjoined the beach. When I say small, it only has inside seating for 8, while outside there are plenty of chairs and tables on the sidewalk. We arrived at 8:20 AM on a Sunday morning and placed our order. We were 2 of 6 people seated inside, and 2 of those left shortly after our arrival. Outside seemed to have plenty of seating available, but we opted for inside as we had a tour picking us up at 9:30 AM, and it was an 8-10 minute walk from our hotel. We both ordered the raisin French toast with bacon for $6.00 and fresh orange juice for $4.00. Our order arrived at 8:50 which meant we had to gobble quickly and get back to our hotel. There were 2 slices of French toast which were about an inch and a quarter thick along with 4 slices of thick bacon. Our orange juice came in glasses that were the size of tall water glasses. For the price, it was a deal. For seniors such as us, we could have easily split the order in half as neither of us got past the first piece of French toast. I was put off by the slowness of the service, so will not rate them high. Pinky's does offer lunch and supper as well, but if their service is as slow as ours, I most likely would refuse to tip in the future, as the word tip, is an old acronym meaning "to insure promptness", which in our case was very lacking.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I couldn't be in Condado without having a mallorca sandwich for breakfast at Pinky's. The coffee is great and I love sitting outside with my dog and people watching. Marlene is a great hostess and even when busy, she will do whatever she can to accommodate you.

“Great little breakfast place on Ashford”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Had breakfast at Pinky's both mornings we were in Condado. Was very convenient to the Doubletree where we stayed. Do not use Google Maps to find it! We were sent the wrong way and ended up in Ocean Park. The trip advisor address is correct. The coffee and smoothies are great! I would visit again next time I am in Condado.

“The sandwiches are good, needs more varierty”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

You can get any kind of sándwich you want, except a Cuban. The rest are mostly varieties of turkey sándwiches.
