Ive been coming to friends once a month for about two years, i usually tolerate the bad attitude of the waitresses there but now i can say for certain that there is the worst costumer experience I've anywhere. We got there at 1, half the tables were empty, they brought us our drinks almost right away. 45 minutes pass and... More

I've been to Friends many times over the years and always enjoyed the food. Today I brought 4 friends with me, and although it was extremely busy at the beginning after around half an hour after we'd ordered, the restaurant was semi-full but not what you would call packed. The first time we asked where the food was (around half... More

Wonderful here to start your day. Fantastic choice on the menus and enough food to make you feel it's great value. Try the smoothies, they are delicious, mango passion, and or detox! I like the feel of this place, with various flags welcoming all and the reading corner for borrowing books. A fun place for morning with bright coloured chairs... More

Each time I am in Cabarete this is my go to place for breakfast. the food is good and great for people watching. Right in the heart of all the action. The owner is a great guy and fun to talk to. He will remember me as the guy going crazy that Trump won. See you next month

Open for breakfast and lunch, the menu is quite extensive. If your focus is getting fortified first thing with a good breakfast, this is the place. Friendly fast service. Extremely affordable.

Definitely one of the best restaurants in the whole country! Cute location with all the different colors and flags, plus a mini library and games for kids. Awesome smoothies and juices, great full breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausage and all you can wish for. Centrally located and close to the beaches. Definitely a must-go-to during your Cabarete stay!
