We ate lunch here every day. Sands start at $6.25 up to $9.95 for Panini's. They roast there own coffee. You can't beat the price or quality.

Received advice from a local to pick up coffee beans here and so glad we listened. Loving the chance to sip on Puerto Rican coffee while back home in Texas. Coffee is delicious!

We went here for breakfast because we were told that they had multiple vegan choices, including pancakes that could be made vegan. NOT TRUE. I had fruit with granola on top (to be fair it was delicious) and my husband had a wrap minus the cheese and egg..not spectacular... The coffee was good. They have a choice of Soy, Almond... More

What is good: 1. Amazing coffee - I had a latte and a mocha Frappe and both were amazing! 2. The ambiance - The interior is really trendy and they also have a cool family table style outdoor seating option. There is also an amazing coffee grinder on display (I'm not sure if they actually use it for grinding) 3.... More

Very nice place, cozy. I had a chicken salad sandwich wich was delicious and coffee is just great, outstanding. Any coffee lover would agree. Customer service can improve; when they gave us our order they didn't bother to guide us to where napkins and cutlery was, service was just appropriate. They should train personnel to be more service oriented. I... More

Its a nice little coffee shop which serves typical PR coffee. The only issue with them is the service. If they spent some more time helping the tourist and offering them better help, this place could be a gold mine. Unfortunately, they prioritize the local customers.

Best coffee in San Juan! Also, free wifi for customers. This shop was recommended to us by Carmen, our tour guide for '' Flavors of San Juan ''. You can also purchase the beans to take home.

I marked as gone in November but actually I go there almost every week when I have to go to San Juan on business or shopping. Usually I go in the morning by myself or with customers for coffee and a light snack. There are several parking lots within walking distance. Prices are very affordable. The coffee and pastries fresh... More
