What can I say about this café? It had the best coffee we had in Puerto Rico the breakfast was excellent and the wait staff was friendly accommodating and just generally a good time. We started almost every morning at Angels for breakfast. I highly recommend the steak and eggs if you can get it but don't miss out on... More

My friends and I ate here on three different occassions because the food was so good and the bartenders are really fun! We enjoyed the indoor/outdoor experience when the weather was nice, and the inside air conditioned optioned when it was too hot to dine outdoors. Because there were 5 of us, we all tried something different each time and... More

During our recent visit to San Juan PR, our concierge recommended we visit Café del Angel restaurant. It was walking distance from our hotel. The service was good, but just a bit slow. The food itself was delicious. My fiancé had the friend chicken and I had the grilled chicken, rice and sweet plantains. I didn't care for the plantains.... More

This place was located just a few feet from our condo in San Juan. After spending all day outdoors, we were really craving some authentic Puerto Rican food. The food was very tasty. We started with an appetizer and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked ground beef. I had the Mofongo with chicken and it was a bit over cooked... More

It was convenient - across the street from La Concha. We had an average breakfast but very slow service!

It's a good thing I just ordered an appetizer - sweet plantain stuffed with sauteed ground beef and vegetables, topped with melted cheese. So good!

We have eaten here before and enjoyed the food and so we decided to dine here for breakfast one of the days we were on vacation in Puerto Rico. The food was still very good and the prices cannot be beat. A great place for a quick meal, located across the street from La Concha.
