We were always told to eat where the locals go. We asked our cab driver where he recommended. This place was amazing! The service was great! And the Mallorca bread! O.M.G! We bought enough to bring home to Virginia!

If looking for a local spot for breakfast while visiting San Juan, this is the one for you. The atmosphere is wonderful. All of the servers are dressed in white shirts and buttoned black vests. The countertop area lends itself to great local conversation. Make sure to order a Mallorca. Outstanding! Prices are good and food is great. What more... More

The Mallorca sandwich with egg and cheese, a small cafe and a quesito! That was probably the reason I could not lose those 5lbs while I lived in the old city, but man was it worth it. Very affordable and authentic- I stop by every time I am in town :)

If you want to go where the locals eat, this place is it. Try the malorca breakfast sandwiches - they were excellent. Service was friendly and the food arrived on our table very quickly. Loved it!

My family and I went here twice during our stay in Old San Juan. The Mallorcas were great and so was the fresh squeezed orange juice. The service was great too. Next time I am in Old San Juan, I am stopping here for two or maybe three mallorcas with ham, egg, and cheese. So good. Melts in your mouth.... More

The mallorca here is THE BEST in San Juan and the service is awesome. Sit at the counter for faster service. My favorite is the mallorca with ham and swiss cheese. They even have live music on many days.

We wanted an inexpensive place to get a bite for breakfast and coffee and this place was recomended for their reasonable price and simple menu.We like trying a new place every day.This place was nothing fancy,but the mallorca bread was heaven, they press it, and butter it and make it into different types of sandwiches and then put powdered sugar...

We were told to go here to have a local favorite ... the Mallorca sandwich. It's supposed to be like a Monte Cristo with ham and cheese, but the cheese was not melted and the ham was not warm. Go to Caficultura down the street for a great Mallorca sandwich !
