“Home Away From Home!”
Reviewed December 24, 2009

Like most of the reviews here, excellent place to eat, drink, and people watch. We ate breakfast there last week three times. We also asked them to make up sandwiches (an Italian sub just like home) for the beach. Great way to start the day with an omelet and bloody mary or Medallia! And was the first legitimate eggs sunny side up we had in Puerto Rico. Excellent cooks and staff. And a current daily paper to look at. And off-street parking, a tough find along that stretch. Looks like they are moving toward opening for dinner soon, they said that would be a combination of the lunch menu along with specials. While I'm not much of a meat loaf fan, I saw the special of the day heading for the oven, looked almost good enough to eat!

“Not what we expected...”
Reviewed December 8, 2009

We ate at Belly Button's our first morning in Vieques. After reading the reviews, I was looking forward to breakfast there. Unfortunately, it wasn't what I had hoped for... while the atmosphere was very laid-back and provides a neat setting for people-watching, the food wasn't anything to write home about. It was more along the lines of "greasy diner food". I was hoping to be surprised and find this quirky little place have a breakfast that would set us on the right path for our day but we both left shrugging our shoulders and opted for eating cereal at our rental place the rest of the week. Inexpensive and as such, worth it to try it once... then make your own decision. For us, we decided we'd rather spend our money on lunches and dinners.

“Outdoor, great service, good food”
Reviewed December 3, 2009

Missed the breakfast but seems like the place to be. We went there for lunch after some snorkling and kayaking. We had a great tuna sandwich and a burger. The food was good. Typical bar food. The service was spectacular. We met Debora who was very nice and full of energy which was inspiring. If we go back will have to make breakfast. The food was worth the price and was enjoyable.

“Tasty and Scenic Breakfast”
Reviewed November 17, 2009

Belly Buttons is a great place to lounge in the morning. If you are looking for good pan de agua this is your place. Good prices for Esperanza and a great way to start your morning. Nothing like sipping a cold beer at 8:30 with your eggs staring off at the Melacon! We love Vieques and travel there often. Belly Buttons is a sure bet for breakfast and lunch on the island!

“Filling Tasty Breakfast”
Reviewed July 3, 2009

I ate there 3 mornings in a row and found the food tasty and filling. I had the 2 eggs, ham, country potatoes and toast for $6.50. Wonderful breakfast that really filled me for the day. French toasts was tasty too. Can't beat the beach side atmosphere!! I have no complaints.
