Daughters had the salmon eggs benedict. Hot chocolate was very good, The restaurant looks like a house, which added to its charm. Friendly service. Limited tables so there... More

When we sat down and looked at the menu, we only saw sandwiches, pizza and snacks. When we told them that we wanted something more "dinner-like", they made some delicious spaghetti and salads for us. The salads were excellent. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. This was a small family/neighborhood place. Everyone seemed to know each other. Prices were a... More

I walked into Cafe Marquesa for breakfast. I was seated immediately and waited on very quickly. For service, this place is outstanding. I ordered the red velvet pancakes based on the reviews here as well as a cafe con leche. I was pleased that they offered a variety of milk products for their coffee beverages. The pancakes arrived after about... More

My little girls enjoyed their velvet pancakes, and parents were happy about the coffee and relaxing music! The egg Benedict was yum!

Very surprised with this little gem in Santurce close to Calle De Diego...It has a french boricua ambiance, go for the eggs benedictine or try the little pizza with pancetta! Buen Provecho!

Very good brunch to share with your partner. It is a small but comfortable and cozy space. I recommend the eggs benedict and florentine benedict. The service was a little slow. The manager was very helpful in our visit.

We stayed at the La Concha in Condado, and this was a great nearby place. We had very friendly service, and the food was great. My wife had the red velvet pancakes, which were a hit. One thing to note is that the menus are in Spanish.
