GREAT Coffee!

Ok, went here on a tasting tour and we had coffee and a Mallorcas sandwich which was delicious! I am not a big coffee drinker but decided I had to taste Puerto Rican coffee and I was glad I did! They have their own brand called Mona Lisa (Italian name but whatever) and it was great. They served... read more

The coffee is strong and delicious; the food was slightly better than average; the environment was lacking. This hard-to-find was a favorite of one of my travel companions, so we went back several times in our week-long vacation. The service was always pleasant and the coffee the ideal pick-me-up. Great place to visit if you're dying of heat and caffeine... More

This place was delicious. Coffee, sandwiches out of the world. Went back on our own for breakfast and that was great as well. A must stop if you are in Old San Juan!

Have been here twice now and both times were excellent. Had the mallorca ham and cheese Puerto Rican version of a monte Christo which was excellent. Coffee is from a local Puerto Rican coffee farm and excellent

As a coffee lover - I was thrilled that this was our first stop on my Flavors of San Juan Tour. The coffee was delicious and my husband had a cherry drink that was made from caribbean cherries - again - absolutely delicious! This was accompanied with a sandwich that was sprinkled with powdered sugar and I was full when... More

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 to meet up for our... More

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
