Great little coffeehouse

While waiting around for our Taste of San Juan Tour, we stumbled across this little shop. My husband was complaining that he needed a little snack before the tour. The employees were very nice and made suggestions of things to try that were local. We ate too much but it was delicious! We then went... read more

Love Love Love their mamposteao rice!!!! I frequent this restaurant for lunch since is pretty close from the office. SLOW service but totally worth it. I recommend to order by phone first. I usually order the same meal: arroz mamposteao, medallones de pollo con salsa de guayaba y tostones, my fav so far. But the burger is good too and... More

The most amazing coffee I've had in a very long time! The coffeehouse is very homey and very lovely, very nice place to hang with friends, family or have a job lunch. The service is amazing! Pricing is fair and the food is very good!! Definitely going to be visiting this place more often.

We stopped here on our tour to try their coffee and mallorca sandwich. Wow! This place did not disappoint! The cafe con leche was on point! Very good cup of coffee! And the design on top was cute! The mallorca sandwich we tried was by far the best sandwich I've ever had! Ham, egg and cheese on sweet bread dusted... More

My wife and I are regular Aromas customers and were very surprised with our first bad experience. The coffee to start with was great as always. Our lunch meal though (Salmon) was Salt on Steroids! I mean over salted!! I immediately brought this to the attention of our waitress, and she brought matters to an efficient resolve. The restaurant was... More

The Mayorca sandwich was absolutely delicious. I wish I would have gone back for more. The café was a little warm, but I think they were only open on our tour. The coffee was dark and delicious.

Our first time in San Juan (Cruise Stop) and we came across this place while touring the city. It looked so inviting and the staff was so kind and friendly. In going over the menu our waitress was so gracious and patient in helping us choose local dishes explaining what they were and really helpful with our 15 year old... More

The coffee here is local, single origin and delicious. Beautiful old building with very friendly staff. Skip the Starbucks that is in Old San Juan and find this place or another local one like it. Try the Mallorca too - great brunch.
