Bistro de Suikertuin

Located in a historic mansion on one of the oldest streets in Oranjestad, Bistro de Suikertuin is hard to miss. The building is painted a bright hue of yellow, reminiscent of the tropical birds that visit its namesake sugar garden, and the front porch features a blackboard with the daily menu. Tables are scattered inside and out, but the pretty garden is the preferred spot for savoring your morning coffee and Aruba’s traditional pancakes. Come lunch, the restaurant is all about salads, wraps, and broodjes (Dutch-style sandwiches with meat and/or cheese on baguettes). Note: Reservations are recommended for afternoon tea service.

Dutch Food Served in an Old Townhouse

Eethuis De Suikertuin (Sugar Garden) is named for the sugar loving 'buiki heel' (yellow belly) birds that dip in and out of the back patio. It's a charming place for breakfast and lunch, that serves up good, local, dutch-influenced fare. Indonesian-style nasi goreng (fried rice with eggs, vegetables and satay), and a home-made apple pie are the specialties here. Salads were delicious, too, especially during the very hot days, along with an ice-cold 'chill', Aruba's local beer.
