Enjoy Local Food at Bebos

Bebos Cafe Loiza San Juan Puerto Rico

Bebos is where many locals go to eat lunch & dinner.

Good local food and generous-sized plates. Two or possibly  even three entrees and a bottle of wine can be had for $50. The A/C is high so it’s chilly inside. Bring a long-sleeve shirt or light sweater if you tend to get cold easily. Bebos will sometimes display local art and we have discovered an artist on those walls that we now support.
