For our second day, we wanted to stay close to the hotel and enjoy the atmosphere by soaking in the sun. We started the day walking down the road to a place called Waffler Avenue.
It’s a little place that specializes in waffles and really deserves its own post. It provided an outstanding breakfast for us, and their Puerto Rican coffee beverages were quite amazing. The waffles ranged from savory to sweet and were out of this world.
On our way out, I had to walk the short distance to the end of the small shopping plaza to see what was going on at the little Ben and Jerry’s coffee bar.
What I came to find was that that particular Ben and Jerry’s had the best Puerto Rican espresso beverages in the Condado. My favorite drink there was “cafe cortado” (shown above), which is basically half of a true capuccino. The artwork and decor in there was a lot of fun too.
A good part of the rest of the day was spent at the pool at the hotel. I watched lots of things on the WWE Network while working on my tan. When we got thirsty, pina coladas and Cuba libres were the drinks of choice.
It was a great opportunity to work on my DDP Yoga in the sun!
When we got tired of the sun, we headed down Ashford Avenue to have dinner at a little place called Cafe Lola, which is a nice restaurant owned by Puerto Rican celebrity chef, Roberto Trevino. This will be the subject of a forthcoming derryX Dines post.
After dinner, we walked the strip a little then settled in to our room so I could watch Monday Night Raw (This was the infamous night where the internet had decided that they would be trying to “Hijack Raw” and when CM Punk was rumored to be coming back in Chicago; it was a total dud on both fronts.).
That was pretty much it that day.
