Incredible service, super fast. James was especially helpful, he had eight tables and we still got our food as fast as possible. All around grate environment and ambiance, super chill and the workers are very sweet. We literally got pampered, no complaints.

First, I'd like to make something clear regarding a review that has been published right before mine: 1. This restaurant DOES NOT CHARGE for dine-in disposables and 2. This restaurant DOES NOT SET UP a one hour dining limit. That said, I will share our...experience. We're a Puertorican family of 2 adults and 2 teens from the Northwestern town of Aguada and we were enjoying a couple of days off in Rio Grande. On Saturday, June 12, we went out for breakfast and based on reviews we decided to visit Lluvia Deli for the first time. This cozy, lovely place is located right at the beginning of the road that leads you to El Yunque, in the heart of the Palmer village. If you arrive before 8:30 am you could get a parking space, otherwise it will not be that easy. It's an unpretentious, laid-back atmosphere with soothing colors and relaxing jazz music. Everything looked spotless and clean. Enter Sofía. Not only she greeted and served us the entire time but she was also the sweetest and more gentle server I've ever come across. Even behind her face mask, we could feel her smiling, she had this beautiful aura and warmth around her! So we scanned the menu and selected our items. Both my husband and my daughter were marveled at the coffee while my son noticed that his orance juice was Tropicana without pulp but guess what? He's a Tropicana fan ever since he was a baby. Breakfast was served promptly and I liked that dishes are biodegradable yet nice-looking, just suitable for the setting. I'm not into waffles but couldn't help ordering one and it was to die for, so fluffy and fresh! Both kids went safe with these huge set of pancakes, they were full instantly. My husband had a Lluvia Breakfast which consists of eggs, bacon, ham, bread, 2 pancakes and your choice of house potatoes and hashbrowns. Well, my husband was so blown away by the bread that he asked Sofia about the bakery where they got it from and Sofia told us that the bread was made from scratch by the restaurant personnel. We were so satisfied with our breakfast that we didn't mind that it was on the pricey side, but it was all worth it. The morning after we tried Ekelekua which is another breakfast restaurant in Rio Grande and it is also great, but not as good as Lluvia Deli so on Monday morning(right before leaving Rio Grande) we went back and there she was, nice and friendly Sofia remembering us from last visit and welcoming us back. This time I asked for one of the most popular items at the restaurant which is the Breakfast Burrito, and the hype was true, it is big and delicious but the side house potatoes were the showstealers, you should really get one of those! My son had a Lluvia Breakfast, my daughter had waffles and my husband ordered French Toasts served in homemade bread(the one that he praised so much the first time). I'm not vegan but I recall seeing some items on the menu that are suitables for veggies i.e. avocado toasts, choices of fruit, etc. We're back in our hometown but we already decided we should come back...thanks, Sofía!More

The service was bad, and the owner is impolite. We were still ordering food and we were asked to leave due to 1 hour time limit. They charged for items that we didn't consume. And they charged 3 dollars for dine in disposables without telling...us.More

Stopped in for a latte and a side of bacon. Really sweet girl taking orders. Good coffee and good bacon! Right outside the rain forest entrance so made for a good stop on our way out.

After a terrible experience the night before trying to find someplace for dinner (all restaurants were closed) with my two grandsons, we found this amazing spot for breakfast. It is super clean, great artwork, filtered water, great service, and delicious food. My 12 year old...grandson had the waffle sandwich which was two delicious waffles with eggs and cheese filling and beautiful fresh strawberries, the 6 year old had the waffles with fresh fruit, and I had the scrambled eggs with the best home fries I've had ever. The fresh juices were great! The server was very friendly and went above and beyond to make us happy. After spending the morning at El Yunque, we talked about where to have lunch before heading back home, we decided to play it safe and return for lunch. Lunch was even better! We had the veggie fajita, a honey mustard egg salad wrap, and the bruschetta. Then I knocked over my delicious iced cappucino which went flying all over the table, chairs and floor. They went out of their way to make an embarrassing situation tolerable, tried to make me feel less embarrassed, and even brought me another drink. Take my word for it that you will not be disappointed! I do hope they will be there next year when we visit the rain forest again!More

We stopped on our way from the rainforest. The fajita sandwich and the turkey pesto sandwich were both great - we couldn't decide which one was better.

Personally, I would take bottled water and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or granola bars. Remember, it's hot and humid... and it's a rain forest, so I wouldn't do anything fancy. There are different dining options in... More
