Perhaps we had the wrong expectations -- it is a coffee house, not a restaurant, though the food was decent when it arrived and nicely presented. We noticed that most of those who just ordered coffee waited forever, too. However we also noted that the staff spent much time talking to some of the patrons. Again, perhaps we had the... More

Came here because of the reviews - reviews suggest the coffee is outstanding - we had regular coffee which was very good- It is a pleasant respite in the busy touristy area. The food choices are fun - several reviews suggest disappointment at not being adventuresome. We did eat less adventuresome and it was delicious - so you won't be... More

We had breakfast here twice in Nov 2016. The place was packed with a mix of locals and tourists. The turnover was fast enough that we had only a short wait each time. The cafe has a number of egg dishes and pancake dishes. Their specialty is local coffee with an extensive offering.

Huge portions! Could have split the sausage side dish. Many varieties of coffee. Would definitely come back!

I wanted to try Caficultura as it was recommended on TripAdvisor as well as other travel sites. They were very busy so I opted to get a latte to go. The latte was served quickly and was quite wonderful. However, I was not welcomed very warmly when walking in or ordering. I do understand they were busy but every other... More

I had heard good things about Caficultura and wanted to try it out. This restaurant is located at the bottom of Calle San Francisco near the park in Old San Juan. I was seated immediately. The staff was very pleasant and took my order for cafe con leche and the sweet potato crepes with sausage. My food came out very... More

I went to Caficultura for breakfast and was looking forward to the coconut/pineapple french toasts. Sadly, they were a total disappointment. The bread was extremely dry and aside from the top which was in direct contact with the pineapple marmalade everything else was too dry to enjoy. Definitely was not able to eat them. The service was also extremely slow... More
