Dessert and coffee were great!

I stopped here for a coffee break and had a piece of cake and an espresso drink, which were delicious. The service was friendly, and the atmosphere was quaint and warm. It was a great place to stop and rest while walking around Old San Juan.

What a cute and welcoming cafe. It is right on the corner. The decor is welcoming although wooden chairs aren't very comfortable without cushions. We enjoyed their lunch special - cold drink (coffee machine was broken) soup of Demi taste size and then salad or sandwich. There were limited choices but if you match with the special selection it's a... More

Went with another couple after walking Old San Juan. Had a Pesto Chicken Baguette, which was very good. Others had arugula salad and another type of fresh salad. Had a white iced tea that was brewed fresh and was very good. Friendly staff.

My husband and I ate at St. Germain after a morning of exploring Old San Juan. We came to this restaurant after it was highly recommended by a friend who lives in the area. And we were so pleased we took her advice. We stopped in on a late Saturday afternoon and were seated right away on the first floor.... More

This was one of our favorite dining experiences in San Juan. From the first impression getting into the restaurant, we were welcomed by the Manager and waitress. They made us feel right at home. The restaurant felt very cozy inside, with such a great atmosphere, very casual and intimate at the same time. We started with some drinks, and I... More

Great salads, sandwiches and soup! One of the healthiest and yummiest options in OSJ. The place itself is really nice and pretty. I Usually get the Pamela Salad with a soup, and it never disappoints. As far as sandwiches go, the Karl Lox is delicious. Recently, they've added daily specials to their menu - good stuff! Specially the Coq Au... More

First of all they had there coffee machine broken. Asked if they could make tea in the stove like at least heat up the water they said yes only problem was that the tea came 1 hour later after asking for it for 5 times. The server didn't even know what the brunch included when it was clearly stated on... More

Good place. The staff was very very nice! They have fresh ingredients in all of their dishes. They serve salads, sandwiches and pizzas here (their pizzas do not have tomato sauce so just FYI but still good). Mojitos are great too! I will definitely be back next time in PR.

We ate here for lunch while in San Juan for the day. The food was very good, although the service was slow. There was only one person seating customers, taking orders and acting as cashier for about 70 seats. The server was friendly, but was overworked. We both had salads, which were excellent. Fresh greens in both. My husband had... More

There is some confusion when reviewing this restaurant. The fact is that it is really three restaurant which are independent from each other and owned by the same people. First floor, St Germain, second floor El Mezzanine and third floor Al Fresco. Don't be fooled, all are different in terms of food, drinks and service. First floor serves Sunday brunch... More
