Just happened to find this place on the way to the cruise port. They bake pies, cakes, and cookies daily. Home made merengue pies. What?!?! Breakfast severed all day. More food than one person can handle.

My friends and I loved this place when we were just out of high school (1970s and 1980s) and I had a chance to go back recently. The food is still excellent, the serving sizes ample and the coffee is delicious. The staff is friendly...More
