Monfongo Heaven

I have eaten at Cafe Berlin on several trips. Order the seafood monfongo and a mimosa. Absolutely the best monfongo I've eaten in Puerto Rico and the location is a good spot.

We went here around dinner time but we only wanted some drinks since we had a early dinner upon arrival in San Juan. The waiter looked at us in a weird way and snatched away the menus. We ordered some fruit juices that where good. On the outside menu we saw they have many vegetarian options. Unfortunately we didn't have... More

They were able to seat our party of 9 immediately. I don't eat meat and they had plenty of options for me. The "kids" in our group (ages 19-36) were really impressed with the fresh pressed juices - the green apple one in particular. It was delicious, unique, and a little foamy on top. With 9 dishes I'm just going... More

Our first visit offered us delicious vegan versions of Puerto Rican traditional food but slow service . . . Our second visit suffered in a drop in quality but still w/ slow service . . . Nevertheless, we highly recommend Cafe Berlin as a vegan gem in Viejo San Juan

Our taxi recommended another local spot, but they had a long wait. Thank goodness they did! This place was fantastic! My wife enjoyed some french toast and I had the Old San Juan breakfast, both were really good! The space was nice and cozy as well. Service was nice too. Must try!

Tried the "Puerto Rican Sampler", filled with local favorites, and truly LOVED IT!!!! The staff were truly cool and did not treat us like bothersome tourists at all. Overall, totally enjoyed our visit.

Excellent food & drinks and fantastic service! Close to historic old San Juan Forts. We tried a traditional Puerto Rican seafood dish and it was delicious. Also great cocktails and fresh unique juice drinks.

After 4 years we visited Cafe Berlin again --- so glad we did! They are still producing amazing food... hands down, the best mofongo in Puerto Rico... and I've had many! Service just as we remembered from our visit in 2011 (according to Foursquare this was the year we were there last) and the food quality continues to be top... More
