I was taken completely by surprise when we ordered breakfast from this lil restaurant located next to the airport at Vieques! The owner greeted us very nicely and then served some amazing freshly prepared breakfast!!

We stopped here on our return too - skipped the breakfast at our resort - just for this and this time again, the food exceeded our expectations! A must try is the pork dumplings (both steamed and fried), the carribean style fish (which was super fresh and flavorful), burritos...

Unfortunatley we couldnt try more of their stuff - but would love to - another time!

Had a quick lunch when in the airport on a Tuesday afternoon. We heard that the cafe had really great dumplings so we gave it try. We ordered the pork dumplings and to our surprise, they were amazing. We would go back again - truely a must stop!!

Owner/ operator of this establishment has a captive audience of airport patrons; however, he does not let this fact lead to the neglect of the level of service, cheerfulness, fun, and deliciousness of the Isla Nena Cafe. Prices are very reasonable for Vieques. The food is not gourmet, but it is just right for the setting. Good burgers and other sandwich/bar fare; and a few delicious surprises like conch fritters and the Chinese dumplings. We came back twice during our trip for more of these... Thanks ShuLian!!!! If for nothing else, come to meet Lyman- he will treat you right and hook you up with a few free "chi-chous". A must-see while on Vieques.
