10 Best Aruba Breakfast: Where to have the most important meal of the day in Aruba

Although most of the resorts in Aruba offer an excellent daily breakfast and some even an over-the-top Sunday brunch, there are many overlooked options around the island. That’s why the Local Experts at 10Best want to share an overview of Aruba’s best places to have breakfast (or brunch), a perfect cup of coffee or maybe even dinner and champagne, early in the morning. It’s all possible, if you know where to look. And yes, Aruba has Dunkin’ Donuts, Mc Donald’s, Cinnabon, Starbucks and other fast food chains. But why stick to the usual? Try an Italian Panini and fall in love with the best Espresso on the island at Lecca Lecca. Go for a Dutch treat at Linda’s Dutch Pancakes and Pizzas and find out what kind of pancake-person you are - the fluffy American kind or the thin Dutch. Not a breakfast fan? Have a regular or one of the gourmet coffees with a newspaper, or have tea served in an adorable tea pot with toast, butter and jelly at the sweetest place in downtown Oranjestad, De Suikertuin. From homey to haute and for the healthy, the hasty or the very hungry ones, Aruba is where to go for happiness - as soon as the sun peaks above the horizon.
