Make time to visit this local gem. We stumbled across Lluvia before spending a day hiking in the close-by El Yunque National Forest. The design and art decor of the restaurant were most inviting---a real standout on the street as something clean, fresh and modern. I was intrigued to learn from the servers that theirs is a family owned and operated business -- the look and feel is so crisp and professional, one would expect the influence of an established corporate brand.
We split a very large deli sandwich ($10 seemed a bit much, but it was plenty for two people) made to order along with their homemade sides and desserts for a picnic lunch in El Yunque. Boars Head meat and cheese options made an excellent meal on Lluvia's specialty homemade bread. (Somewhat like a ciabatta...crunchy crust, chewy interior) They also make fresh fruit smoothies, espresso and coffee drinks (even loaded with a liqueur), and a variety of impressive baked goods. The visible work space behind the counter shows that the equipment and attention to quality is high. And the family could not be any kinder or more gracious for the opportunity to serve in their lovely establishment.
