We're heading to our favourite island very soon. Where, in your opinion, is the best Sunday brunch and why.

Windows on Aruba. Why? (not in order). Beautiful setting, very good service, table service (buffets are no longer of interest to me). Great food menu (updated in the past few months) with many choices. Plenty of breakfast choices for those who prefer, as well as apps, entrees and desserts. They only reserve each table once so you can linger....visit. However, if you want to be in and out they can accommodate that schedule also. Endless mimosas. Windows has been my favorite for years. I have been to Hyatt (buffet and not my thing as I mentioned) , L.G.Smith and Taste of Belgium (both more than once...they were fine but IMHO not as good in above categories). "White" at The Gold Cost complex does brunch also but I have not been....limited menu which looks fine but does not fit with the variety of people I usually 'brunch' with.
Whichever you select...enjoy! :D

ann or anyone prices are very important when it comes top Aruba Brunches.

I like a good hardy diverse breakfast but spending $50.00+ pp plus and spending hours away from why you go to Aruba (beach, water, Sun).

I answered his question! Brunch is not for everyone nor is time away from the beach.

Yes ann and your were very informative but as great as some places may be it is good to share prices. Brunch is Aruba is as expensive as Brunch in most major US cities it appears.


As for time away guess it depends on how long someone is in Aruba. There for a week or two or month or more.

The original question did not ask price....if you want the price the websites have them. Windows is $47 plus tax and tip. You can go to website for $5 off.

Feel the same way & have never gone to a brunch in Aruba. We eat very light breakfast & lunch on our balcony at CLBR - then we go out for dinner. But we've met folks at our resort over the years who have raved about the brunches in Aruba. Some folks seem to rotate among the places Ann mentioned. It appears that if they have a not-so-great experience, they'll switch off to another brunch. I recall that they liked the brunch at place at Terra Del Sol (think it used to be named Ventana Del Mar).

Windows on Aruba. Far and away for all the reasons Ann shared - most important to us being that our seats our reserved for the duration of the Brunch, fixed price, table service, small serving sizes. E.g., eggs benedict is served one egg per serving. Will be checking out the new menu this Sunday.

If $ is a determining factor then perhaps brunch, anywhere, is not for you.

So to many of you the cost of Brunch is not important. Great but when you have been to a place and like it is it so hard to give or be asked. As far as I know Brunch places have a set price?

It's called being extra helpful. Something that I excel at.
