Well, its’ close to summer time and it’s time to get out of Arlington! Unfortunately, time does not permit me to travel back to the Caribbean, BUT Caribbean Breeze is a great choice if you need a little kiss from the Caribbean!  I have to say that I love the atmosphere with the bright colors, the floral shirts and when its nice out there is even a volleyball court and a Corn Hole game area! But because of the great sunny (not!) weather we are having I did not have a chance to experience the greatest of their outside. I would have to say that it really does feel like a resort when you walk in the door. (At least to me it did! )
When you first walk in your immediately see a large buffet in front. It not only has traditional brunch food (such as waffles, sausage, create your own omelet, bacon, etc) but they have food that you would usually find in the Caribbean (hence the name Caribbean Breeze). There were floral skins, a separate salad bar with different types of salads (potato, chicken, tomato and mozzarella, tuna, cucumber and tomato….)  a roast beef caving station, smoked salmon, plantains, black beans ( they are awesome), jerked chicken and rice and beans.  Lastly, there is a chocolate fountain!  Of course there is more, but I have to leave some to the imagination! 

Overall the food was amazing! I have been to Caribbean Breeze many times and every time I go I am never disappointed.

On a scale rating one through ten I will have to give Caribbean Breeze a nine.  It is a great location if you want to bring your parents that are visiting in town, go to brunch with a few friends or even start a Sunday Funday there when the weather is nicer.  Stay tuned for another review very soon!
