Absolutely worth a stop. We visited Carta Buena three times during our vacation in Rincon. The view is amazing with a vegetable garden, palm trees and banana trees. The vegans and non vegans in our group loved the smoothies, salads and yogurts,

Leon and his crew had all we needed. Gluten free muffins, fresh pressed juices, acai bowls. We stopped there everyday. And they have a beautiful area to sit in and enjoy the gardens and view of the ocean.

I agree with everything good said in other reviews, so will just add a few things: it may be experimental, but Carta Buena was open until 3pm when we were there in December, although their hours are listed as open until 2pm. All the smoothies are made to order, so be a little patient with orders and you will not... More

We loved our lunch salad, wraps and smoothies from Carte Buena. Everything was super fresh, tasty and served with a smile. We so appreciated finding healthy food options here. The location is beautiful and overlooks their beautiful organic gardens. We'll be back!

Great little wagon with healthy choices of juices and smoothies. I have tried three so far and my favorite is the Sunrise Salutation. Great option for something light and fresh.

I really can't say enough about my new favorite place to eat, Carta Buena. Everything on their menu is delicious, fresh and creative. The environment is exceptional with the produce actually growing next to you as you devour the yummy goodness, all while basking in the beautiful ocean view. This is a must if you are lucky enough to be... More

One of the best things about hanging out in Rincon is visiting Carte Buena every morning and choosing something new off their incredible menu. The people that work there are very cool and helpful, and I tried something new every morning and was NEVER disappointed! The baked goods are incredible. The coffee is phenomenal, and the smoothies are to die... More

This is a great addition to the neighborhood, especially if you want a lighter, healthy breakfast. The menu is pretty limited, but everything is fresh and delicious. I liked the vegan coconut yogurt; more like an acai bowl in terms of texture, but really nice flavors. The juices are also really good. It's definitely a little pricey for the area,... More

Description
We serve delicious Food, Juices, Smoothies, & Coffee in our own organic gardens. We are not nutritionists, fitness gurus or a lifestyle brand. We don't sell cleanses or medicine. We just make delicious things that are also good for you. Our menu is designed around the Puerto Rican Harvest Calendar and we use what we grow in our gardens. We source our other fresh ingredients locally and organically. Our juices are made with a hydraulic cold press to maximize the benefits. This pressing action doesn't heat or oxidize the produce. The result is a nutritionally packed, live juice that is loaded with enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals & other vital elements that tastes fresh and delicious. Thanks for trying us out.
