You haven't drank GREAT coffee until you drink a cup from Cafe Cola'o... You must go.. If you are planning a cruise to San Juan, you must stop at this coffee shop. It is near the port as soon as you exit the ship. I can't wait to go back just for the pure coffee.... Great flavors and great taste... More

We stopped in here after out cruise due to the popularity of it on Trip Advisor. I thought it was disappointing, but the hubby was satisfied. They did have quesitos, and they were delicious, but I didn't care for the coffee.

I must say the coffee is excellent but the selection of pastroes could be improved as they appear to be from Costco. They take great pride in their coffee and need to pay moore attention to the other offerings. I will definitely be back...

We stopped by after the bacardi tour to get a cappuccino based on the good reviews. It was amazing!! Coffee was so rich and flavorful and not bitter at all. It beats all the starbucks and dunkin donuts coffee shops around.

My husband and I went here to try the coffee since we heard Cafe Cola's had the best coffee in town. I must say the coffee was delicious and the staff were very friendly. There was no free wifi so we only visited once b/c we love drinking coffee while using our computers. However, I definitely recommend going to Cafe... More

Of course I get excited when I can have a snack/treat that's gluten free. It is small so you may prefer to eat outside. The coffee was excellent and the service was quick and friendly. It's also a stop on the free trolley ride so it's easy to get to from wherever you may be in the downtown core.

Since La Bpmbonera has closed, we've been in search of the best coffee and malljorca sandwich. This is the best we've found but a distant second. Good service, great location for cruisers. Great selection of Puerto Rican coffees.
