We were staying at an apartment right off calle luna and would come for breakfast here. My husband loved the ham and cheese Mallorca and I had the one with just butter. One afternoon on the way back to the apartment, we stopped and took some mallorcas from the window to go. So so delicious!! Both times we sat at... More

Window display of Mallorca pastries caught my niece’s attention. We did not eat at the diner but niece bought Mallorca to eat back at the guest house. After the week in San Juan, we can state that this place has the best Mallorca pastry in San Juan.

We have been visiting Mallorca since kids were little. Every Sunday breakfast had been wonderful, and Saturdays lunch had been great. Waitress are helpful and eager to help always. Menu is affordable and tasty.

this is a hole in the wall, with not the greatest bathroom conditions; in fact, the ceiling in the women's bathroom collapsed from the rain and they had buckets in there catching the rainwater. BUT!!! the food is the bomb!!! the locals are here and their mallorcas are the BEST! this is a must try for anyone visiting san juan... More

We ate breakfast here on a Sunday morning after getting off our cruise ship. There are not many places that are open in OSJ on a Sunday morning, but this one was. We unfortunately did not try the Famous Mallorca sandwich that they are known for, having learned about it on our Food tour after eating here. I will go... More

A must to breakfast in old san juan! Dont bother with your hotel free breakfast. Spend the six bucks and order the mallorca! We sat at the bar and loved listening to the trumpeter and watching the hustle of the staff. No complaints whatsoever and we are very judgey food people!

located in Old San Juan. Great cheap place for breakfast with old time atmosphere. Waiters wear white jackets. Both of us ate for about $10. Not fancy but was a great way to start our day. There is a counter or tables. Pastries on display. They take credit card.

This is by NO means a gourmet spot. At best the food is only average, the restaurant is dated, and marginally clean. Don't always believe the guide books.

The famous Mallorca sandwich was ok. I was expecting it to be the best, based on the reviews but it wasn't. I was not impressed with their coffee. It had a bitter taste and they charge for refills. Also to my dismay was the huge roach on it's back next to where I was sitting. As I know OSJ is... More

OK, so first off, this place is not a place you go to be wowed by the decor. It's charm is that it has been the same for years and its a local spot that locals do in fact frequent. It feels like a cross between an old school Diner, and an old school donut shop with all of the... More
