We ate here almost every day. Breakfast was average at best but much cheaper than next door at Pinkys. Lunch and dinner were our favorite and we even got food to go when we headed back to the airport. Skip the sangria, it wasn't good. The service is attentive and this place gets packed. The decor isn't much but you... More

We were hoping to try some of the local food and at Café Angel we were not disappointed. The food was delicious as were the drinks. Our first taste of Mofongo which we were looking forward to trying did not disappoint!

The food here is good you won't get a bad meal. Service can be a little slow if they are packed which is annoying we waited about an hour for two ham and cheese sandwiches on a Saturday morning. Other than that the staff is cool and the drinks are okay

Took forever to get food but the hotel staff recommended it. They're style is avoidance rather than letting the customers know the kitchen is backed up. They kept having more people come in and get seated when they should have just told them it would be a while. Several people including large groups left because of the long wait without... More

Again tried to immerse ourselves in Puerto Rican food for dinner by trying Cafe Angel but found ourselves overall disappointed. Very average food with little flavor. I tried their shrimp rice/gumbo and to me it tasted like chicken flavored Rice a Roni with a few shrimp thrown in.

We were "recruited" out of the line from Pinky's which was our original destination. We should have stuck with our instinct, but we were swayed by the rather jovial loosey goosey Guy who worked in the restaurant. He assured us that breakfast would take 10 minutes. We sat and waited and waited and waited before anyone brought us a menu... More

Came for breakfast nearly one hour for coffee, omelette and pancakes. Food was decent, nearly $30 for a light breakfast was a bit much.

Dinner here was terrific. Showed up for breakfast at 10:45 on Saturday morning. Ordered a round of waters for the table.... took an hour to get four waters. Our waiter Danny seemed stoned. We had an order of pancakes, one egg with bacon and two orders of eggs with bacon and pancakes. Everything came out cold. I ordered a mimosa... More
