Server tried to help get owner to understand he had to honor it but owner got mad and stormed back into the kitchen and refused to... More

We were strolling down el Viejo San Juan when we ran into this restaurant. The food was delicious, seasoned extremely well. Tony, the owner, and our waitress were extremely welcoming!

Happened across this place because the one we wanted had a 25-minute wait. We should have waited at the other restaurant because Blessed Cafe took a very long time for some simple brunch orders. We walked in and were the only ones there - I wanted to leave after noticing we were the only ones there during prime brunch hour... More

We ordered part of the drinks came but no food. After 30 minutes 2 in our group wanted to shop and asked... More

Went in to this restaurant because of the guy standing outside, beckoning to us. The food was excellent, we had the oxtail with rice and peas and curried chicken with rice and also a chicken salad. The oxtail tasted homemade, like I'd made it myself. There was lots of meat which impressed me because I usually feel cheated when ever... More

Description
Located in the heart of the Old San Juan for over 10 years, Blessed Café is one of the best kept secrets in the area! This friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar features authentic Jamaican creations paired with a fun and lively atmosphere. Using his grandmother's own recipes of Jerk Chicken, Curry Goat and Ox Tail, Tony has made Blessed Café a regular stop for repeat visitors from the local area and from afar. For those of you who are familiar with these specialized dishes, you will not be disappointed with the delicacies of this authentic Jamaican restaurant. Vegetarian entrees are also offered, along with a great selection of beers and spirits to compliment your meal. Besides the culinary experience, you will also enjoy the smooth sounds and vibes of reggae artists like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Glen Washington, as well as live reggae music every Saturday night at 10:30 PM. We invite you, your family and friends to visit us for a truly unique experience in Puerto Rico!
