headed back to a cruise ship, I saw this little coffee shop and decided to stop and rest with a coffee before heading to the port. Glad I did. Asked for a cortadito and got an excellent one. The people were very helpful and friendly and they had some delicious items to eat as well. There is an outdoor area... More

The cafe con leche here is unbelievable! the rest is reasonably ok . We came here for breakfast because it was near the pier and across from our hotel and we heard about the coffee. We had majorca sandwiches with ham and cheese. The first day they were made well and toasted properly but second day there were different people... More

After reading all the reviews, I just had to try a cup of cafe macchiato while I was visiting Old San Juan. Yes, everyone is absolutely right- the best coffee that I have had here in Puerto Rico.

I loved the specialty coffee and the mallorca sandwich was amazing. The quesitos were by far not the best I've had. The ambiance and music was nice, it was a relaxing time. However, the service was poor, they kept forgetting to give us what we ordered (we had to go up and ask for things they kept forgetting) because the... More

Great location on OSJ on the pier. They have pastries so you can do a quick snack with the best coffee y ever taste. Service was quick the only thing is that the pier need to be renovated. Ice Latte was a great choice too.

Best Puerto Rican coffee in Old San Juan! The locale's decor is a tribute to our beloved drink. You can have local pastries, grind your own coffee out of 5 different local growers, and enjoy it all in a comfortable, air conditioned place. Highly recommended!

Delicious fresh coffee - we love cold beverages so we ordered 2 iced lattes with whipped cream and they were wonderful! The barista was SO sweet and even let us borrow is wifi... More

Conveniently located across the street from the Sheraton Old San Juan. Very small place, but friendly staff and great latte.
