Great vegan and vegetarian options

I was thrilled when I sat down, and read their vegetarian options. The vegan burger was delicious, the service was great, a thought it was a bit pricey but then I realized that it was average for Puerto Rico.

When I went with my family, it was not crowded. We got a seat immediately and ordered. The pasta I ate was amazing. The service is great and they are very friendly.

Thank you Wanda for a wonderful brunch as we departed old San Juan for Boston. The mofongo was a nice reminder of Puerto Rican cuisine.

Pleasant atmosphere, great service, diverse menu. We had the chips and salsa, spinach quiche, and chicken club. Everything was delicious. Our server was excellent and only added to our great experience.

Had breakfast here per the recommendation of so many other TA users and we were not disappointed. We ordered the French Toast (not the vegan but another on that for some reason is not on their website menu but was in fact in the actual menu onsite) and the 'Special Omelet'. I consider myself a connoisseur of sorts when it... More

We were looking for a gluten-free friendly restaurant in old San Juan. I have other allergies, too (all seafood and chicken) so I eat a lot of steak when I travel. I was intrigued by the number of vegetarian dishes and Cafe Berlin had several which met my needs. I ended up with one that was tofu with fried tostones... More

Two of my family members are gluten free and we searched specifically for GF restaurants in San Juan. The reviews looked good, but the GF pizza was horrid. The GF pasta was too al dente and poorly seasoned. My nonGF pasta was OK, the kids pasta sauce was out of a jar. My wife's mojito was good. Lastly the bill... More

After visiting the San Cristobal Fort, we stopped here for a quick lunch. At first, the restaurant seemed a bit disorganized, and after using an unlockable bathroom, my expectations were a bit low. However, this changed quickly with a combo of great service and delicious food. With two vegetarians in our party, this restaurant was a rare treat in Puerto... More

I absolutely loved the mofongo (traditional Puerto Rican dish) here. The red wine sangria was fantastic. Anthony took excellent care of us. My husband had the turkey and my daughter had the chicken. My daughter and I shared an excellent potato (puree) and Parmesan soup. We loved everything! We ate at a lot of places during our week-long stay in... More

We went for dinner and ordered the mofongo (which was okay), and the fish with sweet plantains and rice. I didn't think the food was anything exceptional, but it was a nice break from the near-constant pork that is offered on the island. The service was friendly and helpful.
