One of the best ways to experience the vibrant culture of the DR is by eating its food. To get you fueled up for your adventure in Cabarete, we have prepared a list of the best breakfast spots in this town. Best of all, these eateries offer healthy, tasty dishes at affordable prices, and cater to vegans and vegetarians.
The Breakfast Spot
At eXtreme Circus, you won’t have to go far because The Breakfast Spot is close by. Its menu consists of food that is harvested from our Taino Organic Farm, so you know where the food (and its ingredients) on your plate comes from. Don’t leave without having their filling smoothie bowls and hearty coconut pancakes.
La Mesa Taina
How does breakfast by the ocean sound? Heavenly, right? Then head over to La Mesa Taina, which is conveniently located on the eXtreme property. It offers great breakfast options, and has different styles of a traditional Dominican breakfast, which you gotta try. So good! If you’re going to be out for the entire day, a plate of mangu (mashed plantain), paired with eggs will give you all the energy you need. Like The Breakfast Spot, its dishes have organic ingredients straight from our aquaponic Taino Farm. We’re all about sustainability.
Opening hours: Every day, 8 a.m.–10.30 p.m.

We recommend the Vegelicious: a hummus, pepper, and eggplant wrap that will make you want to order a second one.

Right next to the pizzeria, La Chabola is La Cabana, a breakfast-and-brunch spot. It caters to vegetarians and meat lovers, and offers a diverse cuisine.
