Lonely Planet review
The no-frills cafeteria lunch counter at Tompy is Ponce’s most reliable lunch, drawing locals who pile up plates of assorted comida criolla – most of which costs around $7 – and park at the plastic tables. The adjoining Tomas has similarly tasty food with sit-down service, table linen and higher prices (mains $11 to $30).
