Vitea’s, Head Waiter Marco, and his friendly staff were at their best for the first Becas Breakfast of the season that was a sell out. There was much fun, visiting and renewing friendships. Gil Gevins kept the guests amused with his wonderful sense of humor during the raffle drawing. Orlando Santamaria, a former Becado, told his heartfelt story of what being supported by Becas did for his life and how it made him realize that this opportunity was life changing.

Your menu choices will be the following: crepes filled with spinach, mushrooms, eggs with a cheddar cheese sauce; French toast with a topping of almonds and cinnamon with fresh fruit with coconut cream; tea or coffee, and fresh orange juice.
