I work for an airline, and I come to Aruba regularly on my trips--sometimes 4-5 times a month. I got into the habit of coming here for breakfast some time ago, and I'm such a regular visitor that they don't even give me a menu...More

Been traveling to Aruba for years and staying at Renaissance nd never tried this place, so this year decided we should stop in. Menu is pretty generic but the food was excellent, fresh and large portions. Not very expensive either. Try it.
