A saying that is often used (especially by my auntie Flossie), is that 'small is beautiful'. I think it was to apply more to my uncle Herbert😊, but recently I discovered the most lovely, chic coffee/bar/restaurant which serves, quite possibly, one of the best breakfast menus in the south of Tenerife.
The Thirsty Turtle restaurant is easy to find: go to the San Eugenio Commercial Centre and, instead of 'going down' to Puerto Colon, head West for a few minutes, past Harley's Restaurant, bringing you to this super restaurant, run by two very nice people, Alex and his wonderful wife Linda. Both of these charming and professional people have previously been associated with some of the Island's famous eateries - reflected in the charm and professional way their restaurant is run.
You can choose from the Breakfast Bowl section, a delightful range of sandwiches, salads, delicious homemade burgers or their terrific choice of traditional breakfasts (scrambled egg with diced bacon, an English or Scottish breakfast, veggie breakfast or the 'double up' that will fill the most satisfied the most hungry among us!), not forgetting their superb 'posh crumpets'.
This is, to me, the ideal way to run a coffee and bar: family-run with delightful staff, parking is a little difficult, but if you have come via your private plane or chauffeur-driven limousine it shouldn't be problem 😊
Please give The Thirsty Turtle a visit, you won't be disappointed!
