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!

My husband and I popped into Cafe Cola'o on accident looking for another coffee shop, we decided to try this little cafe out and were NOT disappointed! 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.

If I am in Old San Juan, this is a must stop. Right on the cruise ship pier, it begs to try some good Puerto Rican coffee. And don;t look for the 30 seconds to get coffee and go. If you are in OSJ, head to the water front for a break. Watch the water traffic while enjoying a great... More

We were looking for a place to get good coffee in Puerto Rico. We had a few hours left before getting back on the cruise ship and found PRs Cafe Cola'o dangerously close to the cruise ships. It had good reviews on Yelp, but we worried that this could be one of those types of coffee shops that just pulls... More
