The decor is amazing and entertaining! You could spend a lot of time taking in all the whimsical elements in the outdoor garden. Seating is especially creative, yet comfortable. Lots of colour! And the food is very good, especially the papas frites--best I've ever had!

Be sure to go in the back area and enjoy the garden for breakfast and a smoothie. We visited here a few times on our trip and were never disappointed. Don't miss it if you're in SJDS

Simon Says is one of my favourite places to hang out in San Juan. They make delicious smoothies and have an awesome garden with chilled out music and a good selection of games. The smoothies are huge too!

Simon says is a trendy little spot in the heart of town. They've got games and books if you're wanting to pass time with some friends and they have this killer smoothie list to get your drink on to. My favorite was the Jesus smoothie...More
