We came here based on the review and only steps from our hotel at Sheraton. The coffee tasted great but we were a bit disappointed to get paper cups since we were hoping to take pictures and share with our friends on Facebook. Sensing our disappointment, they immediately offered another set on the house and they were beautifully made. We... More

Most Starbucks can't hold a candle to the espresso at Cafe Cola'o. It's just excellent. Hats off to the baristas at this establishment. They are obviously serious about their coffee and craft their beverages with care. My husband and I (both former baristas at Sbux) always make it a point to stop here for our morning coffee.

The coffee is prepared by baristas who make sure that you have a good experience. Small, but cozy. Have different blends of coffee each week. Will come back frequently.

This is a must have coffee. Will make arrangements to have further shipments sent to my home.The staff is very friendly.Also noted that quite a few... More

Nice cup of coffee in a nice setting near the Old San Juan Historic District. It is a very popular local stop and the atmosphere is quite nice. You may try different varieties of coffee produced in the island and you can even buy coffee to bring back home.

I went to Café Cola'o because my boss (seriously addicted to coffee) said that there is the best coffee she ever tried. So me and coworkers of mine went there and it was quite amazing, and this is serious. It is a small local close to the cruises. Service was incredibly warm. And coffee... incomparable. THE BEST. The employees are... More

For coffee, this place was hard to beat. We found many spots where the coffee was good, but this one was the best. During the week, locals are almost lined up out the door. On the weekend, it is quieter and easily accessed. The cheese filled pastry (heated up) is so good - you won't want to share.
