Had the opportunity to visit to celebrate with a great breakfast my grandmother's birthday. The breakfast was delicious and the coffee... speechless. Cafe Nativo is a great place to escape and have a great time with friends and family. It is one of those places...that you can go and forget about everything. Amazing service by the staff. You have to try the Pasta Carbonara!! Had to buy some coffee for me and my friends! 😂More

Wow, the driveway is straight up. We arrived soon after they opened, and weren't quite sure where to go, but just kept heading up. Later when we left, there were several guys with walkie-talkies to help people to park and get back out safely on...the road. The coffee is excellent and the service is fast. The prices are fantastic for the amount and quality that you get. I had the Dona Victoria - a sandwich with brioche French toast for the bread and turkey, cheese and bacon inside, topped with 2 fried eggs. Yum! My husband had scrambled eggs with peppers, onions cheese and ham, as well as helping me finish mine. The setting is so peaceful and calm. What a great way to start the day.More

This was our second visit to Nativo. We love their coffee and the restaurant is great. It’s a bit of a drive from San Juan but well worth it.

I went here with my family for a weekend brunch. The food was fresh and beautiful. The views were gorgeous. The coffee was great. The parcha (passion fruit) mimosa was stellar. My mom got the pumpkin waffle and the fruit cup and it was good....I got the Nativo waffle and it was delicious and filling.More

Totally recommend this small but lovely coffee spot up in the mountain region of Puerto Rico. The drive is long but if you are in town, this place is a must go place. Pumpkin waffles are great!

Best coffee I've ever had(cappuccino). And hands down the best waffle sandwich I ever had, I don't remember the name of it tho. The orange juice was also really good. The waitress was the nicest and very attentive, she even gave us a map and...showed us different places we could visit. The place is very pretty , outdoors with a nice view. And prices are great. I LOVED IT, its a go to if you are in Jayuya.More
