This place was right next to my hotel and was the first place I stopped by during my trip. I had coffee and dessert, both of which were good. The staff was friendly and I loved the shop and decorations. A lot of fun.

To be very clear and honest I own a restaurant in Old San Juan. When I want some peace and quiet and a wonderful hot chocolate I head down the street to this cafe. Friendly staff and wonderful art work surrounded by an amazing hot chocolate. I give this and the owners a five star.

We loved this place so much, my husband and I stopped by everyday of our week-long trip to San Juan. The artwork and poetry adorning the walls are very creative. They do really great coffee and delicious local pastries. Lots of locals frequent the place, must stop by if you are in the Old San Juan.

A local hang-out, especially on Tuesday night's when it's Poetry "Open Mike" night. This is where the "creatives" enjoy themselves thanks to the warmth of the owner "Lady" and her husband. It used to be a Starbuck's, now it's more like a hip morning/afternoon spot for locals and those who love them!

While in Old San Juan, we stopped at this locatin for a coffee after a recommendation from a local hotel. The decor and atmosphere is excellent and not to mention the coffee. Definitely worth the time if you are close and in need of your daily coffee fix.
