“Only place to go to get coffee, but not great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

We were hoping for a lot better as this seemed the only place to get a specialty coffee drink on the island. It was average at best for the coffee, the service was below average and I highly recommend NOT ordering food. Not worth it at all. I have maybe three round tator tots and a less than desirable veggie omelet. If you need a coffee drink it's ok, but get it to go.

“Great cup of Jo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

Roy's is the place to go for a great cup of jo and to relax. As soon as you walk into Roy's you are greated by a lovely peaceful lounge. The bar has great comfortable chairs and there are tables as well in the lounge. Or venture out onto the patio which is just lovely. No view but has a canopy of mature trees with a fountain.

Roy's serves great puerto rican coffee & espresso along with iced coffee, smoothies etc. You can even get hot chocolate for the kids. The cafe offeres WiFi which is free if you spend $10. I've only eaten their for breakfast which is good. The muffins are wonderful. The have bagels as well. I've also had their breakfast buritto, it's pretty basic but what I really like about it is it has no beans. Just eggs, cheese and a meat if you want.

The service is farily quick which is unusual in the caribbean. The owner is from the states so no issue understanding what you want/need.

Roy's has been around for many years now and has quite the following. I know my father who is retired on Vieques frequents Roy's just about daily and many of the grengo locals do as well.

Next time your on Vieques stop by Roy's for a quick bite to eat and a great cup o' jo.

“Waste of money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

So glad to hear it wasn't just me who thought the coffee was terrible. The breakfast was just as bad. We tried going back several times and it was just terrible each time.

“The place to go to find out what's going on in Vieques”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

Roy's is truly the place to go on Vieques to find out what's going on in the English-speaking community. A two-dollar cup of the best coffee on the island and a good pair of ears will set you straight on where the bargains are, what's going on in the housing market, and who's having troubles. Gay or straight really doesn't make any difference here. Nobody is putting on any acts - they're just living their lives and socializing as equals. I could no more go to Vieques without going to Roy's than I could wear long pants and a tie all week down there.

Very decent breakfast. And if you spend ten bucks or more, you get a free hour of internet access.
