This excellent restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B's host. We are travelling with a vegetarian and Balcon del Cafe definitely had great choices for her. The other food and service were equally amazing. We will definitely return for seconds.

We have visited the Balcon De Cafe for years and have always had a great experience for breakfast and lunch. The food and service are wonderful. I highly recommend the Jason special for lunch and the Tipico breakfast for breakfast with a pineapple smoothie.
