You can also leave a paid coffee "cafe pendiente" that... More

Great restaurant. Food is delicious. Wait staff very good. I recommend persuading the city to move their garbage bins that block the view of the plaza. Its all very clean but still not what you want to see. The outdoor seating has a great view of lots of flowers Great place to start or end your tour of old town

We enjoyed 3 breakfast here while staying in Old San Juan. We preferred to sit outdoors which faced a plaza. They have a small dining area in the front of the restaurant and a larger dining area in the back and are constantly busy. The service was lacking, but the coffee and food made up for it. Our coffees were... More

I really am unsure why Caficultura has such high ratings, we left completely unimpressed. Maybe it's the pictures of amazing looking lattes that were posted on here and Yelp. I actually asked for one (more as a joke), but my latte came out looking completely regular. Maybe the person that has the foam milk swirling skilz was off that day.... More

Little treasure in Old San Juan, excellent service, variety on the menu to choose from, different types of coffee of your choice made by their own baristas. Tried their Guava Mimosas really delicious and their mayorca with guava butter. If in Old San Juan must visit this place.

Wonderful and copious amounts of food, most locally sourced, and friendly service from the wait staff. A gem in Old San Juan.

We stopped here for coffee after reading TA reviews. The coffee in Puerto Rico is wonderful and Cafe Cultura's was the best we had. We didn't eat here so I can't comment on the food.

Really cute, great lunch!! The latte was exceptional. The prices were maybe a little on the high side - but was well worth it once we ate. The atmosphere was cute, a small little place.

After walking to and through both forts, we stopped at the first sidewalk cafe. We had awesome sandwiches and the most interesting caprese salad. Service was a little slow but not inattentive. The place seemed popular with the locals.
