    Breakfast

    Will be going to Aruba in November. Is there a good breakfast place around the Renaissance Suites? Our favorites, Villa Germania and La Terraza are either closed or do not serve breakfast until 11am. Any suggestions?

    Also want to mention that Aquarius in the Marina towers has an excellent breakfast buffet. There is also some llittle places that sell muffiny kinds of things right where the boat picks up in the marina towers.
    Paddock serves breakfast, then there's Dunkins, and some kind of pancake house that are dutch kinda pancakes...Rumba is really good, slow, but lots of food, and I mean lots ! Also, a fun place is behind the marina towers is this place for lack of a better discription looks like a walk up dinner, they have some good walk around kind of breakfast wraps.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Good morning,

    One of our favourite places downtown for a late breakfast or early lunch is Pannekockhuis, a Dutch pancake house. It's at the ocean-end of the Renaissance Marketplace, just past the Seaport Casino. It's at the opposite end of the Marketplace from Villa Germania.

    My wife usually has one of their savoury crepes with vegetables and/or bacon. Me? I have one of their plain large, thin pancakes and when I'm done adding the "extra touch" to it, it is absolutely swimming in cane syrup!! My wife is diabetic and she swears her blood-sugar level jumps 2 points just looking at it on my plate.

    Well, you're going to need a good breakfast if you're going to put in a full morning of shopping.

    By the way, I don't know if you are shoppers, but two of my wife's favourite stores are in Renaissance Marketplace, JavAruba for clothing and Jewels in Paradise for, well, yes, jewelry.

    Have fun!!


    Glenn

    Glenn, don't know if you are aware or not but the Villa, or villa germania, is closed.

    Hi Cindy,

    I thought that might have been the case but I wasn't sure.

    We were at the old Villa Germania years ago, maybe 1992 or so, and all I can remember was that the food, while good, was a little too heavy for me, especially in a tropical climate.

    The point in my previous post though was to use Villa as a point of reference when giving directions to Pannekockhuis.

    By the way, have you been to Pannekockhuis yourself? We usually have a late breakfast there at least once during our week-long stay.

    Have a good one,


    Glenn

    If your downtown suggestions don't pan out, grab a cab and head to Linda's Pannekoek. Dutch pancakes that can fuel the most active people all day long.

    Glen, to tell you the truth, my kids didn't like it, so....we didn't go back. Its their vacation too...if they're not happy, we aren't either....I wasn't impressed, good, but repaceable.

    is there a big difference when comparing this place to the one above in Glenns post?

    We love having breakfast at the Paddock. Their omelets are made with Gouda Cheese and served with toast and a side of slaw. Know this sounds strange but it's a good combo.
