“Great coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Good place to grab a cup of coffee or some beans to bring back home. The best part of the place was the picture of Sotomayor on the wall. I sipped my latte and just stared at it in awe of the American dream.

“Best Coffee Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is a little coffee place just down from the pier. The cappuccino is extremely good-as good as in Rome. A definite place to go when in Old San Juan. They have one awards at cappuccino competitions.

“Best coffee on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

I had been traveling to Puerto Rico for over 7 years before I found this place. Right near the cruise ships and although I go to PR to work, I fight the tour groups to get this coffee. Coffee is great and the artwork they create in the cream is unbelievable.

Great cup of coffee and delicious cheese danishes. Convenient location - we were staying at Sheraton across the street. Only one table inside the store though and I believe 2 or 3 outside. Staff was pleasant.

“Delicious coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We tried their cafe late and definitely enjoyed it in spite of the really hot August weather! They also sell various types of their coffee and customize it according to what kind of coffee machine you have. It's a nice souvenir that you can get for about $9 for half a pound.
