A Nice Hide-Away Spot for Breakfast or Lunch
El Tropical sits in a hide-away spot near Nick’s Pizza and Stater Bros in Apple Valley on Bear Valley Road. You may not see it the first time around. Follow the strip of stores beginning with Nick’s and at the end you’ll find the cafe.
You can dine outside like a bistro or head inside to comfortable large booths.
Shhh… Don’t tell Anyone
It’s not a big place, but rather cozy, clean, and bright. It smells so fruity when you walk in. They offer fruit blends and coffees as well as plate specials. It’s the type of place that my husband and I like to spend away from fast food and large noisy restaurants. We’ve only been there once, so we’re looking forward to returning.
Prices are moderate — Plenty on the Plate
Their menu is very large for a little place but the new owners — now in the cafe for a year and a half — have the passion to make good food that has the taste of Mexico and the Caribbean.
You’ll find El Tropical at 21520 Bear Valley Rd, Apple Valley, CA 92308. If you’re not sure of directions or their open hours call (760) 810-0976. Open on Sundays from 8-3 and the rest of the week from 8-5.
