I enjoyed my lunch at St. Germain Bistro & Cafe. The food is fresh, light and delicious and the setting is cozy with a European flare. Try the Guava mimosa!

A cafe with a European feel—both the pace and the portions. The food is high quality and delicious. Professional and kind staff spoke both Spanish and English.

We love this place and visit it during our annual trip to San Juan. It never disappoints. Lovely soups, sandwiches, salads, and quiche in a small, intimate space. Come spend money in San Juan!

Everything here is delicious!! It's a very small, cozy place. Try to get there before lunch hour or afterwards... or get carry out.

Definitely - they offer tons of salads, soups and fruits as an alternate to their baked goods. While I'm not sure if any of their breads are gluten free, they alternative options are delicious.
