Nice little shop

This is a very nice place to stop and shop for local goods. Was met at door with coffee and smile. Be sure to stop and check out their goods as they have a nice assortment.

I certainly regret I didn't buy souveneers for my family on Aug 24 prior to our cruise out of San Juan. While on the cruise pretty much all things were from China and not as authentic would of loved to support this local business. GOOD luck once the construction is completed I can see where that hurts your curb appeal...worth... More

I noticed the shop on our way to El Yunque and made a point of stopping there. Rizelle was super accommodating. She offered samples of coffee (which I bought) and hot sauce (which I also bought.) They had so many cute, original souvenirs and gifts. The prices were great. I had just spent the previous day looking in many shops... More

So sad to see a once vibrant shop stand alone when most stores are boarded up. The town has been hit by hard times. The sign is faded and we drove past it. Stop in and shop, they need the business. I purchased a few items on the way to El Yunque.

Thanks for the review, although we are sad to see that we only got 2 stars, so want to share with you a brief explanation: We agree that our current signage is looking faded and have wanted to repaint for months now. We have been waiting for the construction on the street to finish; which perhaps is a mistake, but... More

Noelia was awesome and very helpful, even though Spanish was not my 1st language as I was from the states. Hopefully I can go back again so I can see her again

The store is filled with gifts that you wont find in typical souvenir stores, a lot of art & crafts, gourmet items, jewelry and of course t shirts and such. But none of it is "made in china" like the other stores. Very refreshing after visiting old san juan and only finding resin and plastic things with "Puerto Rico" stamped... More

Awesome little place to get some souvenirs. Risell was so friendly and helpful. Much better experience than in Old San Juan and much nicer selection of items. Go there and then walk to the Juice Bar down the street to get a smoothie.
