Bistro Café // Isla Verde

Bistro Café in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico offers a variety of dishes—including salads, gyros, and sandwiches—accompanied, of course, by the staples in the menu: breakfast dishes that are served all day long. These include dishes such as pancakes, french toast, and waffles, all equally delicious.

My first time at the café, accompanied by my mother, we were served coffee immediately—two beautifully crafted flat whites. After looking at the menú for a while (everything looked so delicious, I had no idea what to choose; and the option of breakfast for lunch??!!) I chose the salmon and goat cheese croissant. It definitely did not disappoint. The smoked salmon was savory and the goat cheese was creamy and perfect with the salmon. Spinach added some texture to the croissant, which was soft and buttery. The savory was balanced with the sweetness of honey in the mix, perfect for the smoky flavor of the salmon and the calmer goat cheese flavor. The croissant was topped with powdered sugar, which is never a bad thing (in my opinion). My mother ordered a tuna wrap (a bit boring) but she absolutely enjoyed it so I recommend that as well. For my next visit, I am eager to try something for breakfast—perhaps french toast? Or something with Nutella? We’ll see.

Anybody visiting the metro área in Puerto Rico, or anyone living nearby, I recommend the Bistro Café for breakfast or lunch. Also, order the freshly squeezed orange juice—it is absolutely delicious!
