So enjoyed the fresh banana bread, muffins, various juices and nice strong coffee! Missed the fresh spring rolls that I look forward to next time!

Thanks Amy. Our coffee comes from the hills of Adjuntas, PR and is roasted and delivered especially for us each week. We prepare it using a French Press and we like it strong! More

Visited Carta Buena for the first time and highly recommend it. The food was fresh and delicious and there was a great selection. Everyone was super friendly, and while we waited for our juices, we strolled through the vegetable gardens overlooking the ocean. What a setting!

It can be hard finding good vegetables in Puerto Rico but here I was enjoying a fresh kale salad with a hard boiled egg, avocado and carrots. They also have wonderful fresh veggie juices and I really enjoyed my turmeric shot. We ate here several times and really enjoyed it. This is a vegetarian place so there is no meat,... More

Glad you enjoyed lunch. We are so thankful for repeat visits. We have added a few new lunch items this season including the Ensenada Enselada made with locally grown organic Rincón Arugula. More

This local food truck features organic ingredients from the farm it stands on! And their pumpkin muffins are outrageously good. I usually refuse to eat "gluten-free" bakery items (they generally taste like garbage) but was totally shocked at how amazing these muffins are! Plus the immunity shots are life-saving after a hangover. Must visit!

I was lucky enough to be able to come back to Rincon and, of course, I immediately went to Carta Buena for iced coffee, a smoothie and my favorite breakfast, The Lively Up Yourself Bowl. this place keeps getting better and better. Go there and enjoy the yummy items while sitting in the most beautiful spot in Rincon. Awesome!!!!

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

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.

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.
