Some of the best food on the island is dished out at places that are not that great to look at. Some are along the beach, some are in back gardens, and some are in the colonias. But I am going to suggest that the prettiest restaurant is right on a corner in downtown Isla. M&J's Restaurant has moved, and I love the look and feel of the new spot. It feels like a sidewalk cafe. And not only is it pretty, it still has the same great food they have been famous for all these years. Good things to look at, great food in my tummy, and a sunny Saturday on Isla - what more could you want?
The colorful cafe-style patio. Plans are in the works to put a shade cover over the patio, with a ceiling fan.
The nostalgia wall - old pictures of how the island used to look. Wish it still looked like that!
This table pulled me over, it was perfect for our meal and it knew it. I love the little man who shakes pepper out of his sombrero.
The wall I couldn't take my eyes off - I love this shade of blue and all the ornaments. So charming!
More colorful tables out on the patio.
My breakfast plate - the Maya crepe with the house potatoes. Delicious!
And Miguel has trained me well...I had to add some of this delicious sauce on top of the crepe. Yum!
M&J's is open for breakfast and lunch - 7 am to 2 pm. They are on the corner of Guerrero and Abosolo, you can't miss it. And...don't miss it!
