Great place to be and have great local PR coffee!!! I did not eat but they have sandwiches and snacks. They have an open patio inside the shop which is good for big groups. Two thumbs up because they're open until late!

This is a family owned cafe featuring locally grown and owner roasted coffee. Featured on a foodie tour of Old San Juan. Melt-in-your-mouth croissant washed down with a macchiato. Heaven!

This place had very good lattes, however they were fairly expensive. We had great homemade guava butter on a toastada for breakfast.

We were strolling down Calle Recinto Sur after dinner for, what we were assured was, the best coffee in old San Juan. I got a mocha and my wife had a latte, and the coffee was simply brilliant. It is a nice setting and had...More
