The search for brunch is over. We finally found a place in Condado that satisfies our weekend breakfast/lunch craving and that place is Blonda. Opened in March of this year, Blonda is located in a sun-lit corner of San Juan's fancy Ashford Avenue and is a restaurant with an Italian menu of pizzas and pastas but also burgers and steaks.
The brunch menu has specialty drinks and cocktails and a selection of egg dishes - several versions of eggs Benedict (classic, spinach and another one with crab), pancakes and french toast and even steak and eggs. There are also sandwiches, pizzas, burgers, and a few main courses. The place is usually packed with locals which is always a good sign and although the service is a bit spotty, they're friendly and accommodating which makes up for it.
