Best Brunch in Puerto Rico
In the midst of a residential neighborhood sitting high up on a hill, is an unassuming rooftop café serving the best breakfast and brunch, appropriately called Las Vistas. Located in Fajardo, Puerto Rico on the east region of the island, it’s not on a main road and you won’t pass it on your way to something else. Las Vistas is a destination all its own and it is here you will find the best brunch in Puerto Rico.
A rooster crows, multi-color umbrellas quiver in the breeze, and the inviting white staircase leads to a view unlike any other. 360 degrees of verdant countryside and the Atlantic Ocean; speckled with Cape San Juan Lighthouse built in 1880, a bio bay, as well as the island of Icacos. But it’s not only the spectacular view which makes this café special.
“Welcome baby,” the owner Gladys croons as she gives warm hugs to all customers – the same loving greeting given by your favorite tia (aunt) back home – “I’m so glad you’re able to join us.”
The Food is Prepared Fresh from Local Ingredients
The coffee is freshly ground, (my favorite on the island) and the fresh fruit bowl is filled with bananas, mangos, and pineapple from her garden in the back. She drizzles a bit of ginger honey sauce (her own recipe) on top, which compliments the fruit perfectly. “Everything is freshly prepared at the time of your order. Please be patient,” she tells us.
When the savory eggs Benedict Florentine on a traditional arepa, and fluffy banana coconut pancakes arrive, I am truly moved by the meal placed before us. Flawlessly presented and tastefully seasoned they’re as perfect as the view. She tells us, “I’m blessed to be able to serve good food in a beautiful setting such as this,” outstretching her arms along the panorama.
It’s not uncommon for every table to be filled on weekend mornings. Delicious local food, a one of a kind view, and Glady’s passion for her customers, make Las Vistas a destination you should not miss for the best brunch in Puerto Rico. I should also mention the café is rated #1 on Trip Advisor.
