“You have to have their coffee - best in Puerto Rico!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Café Cola'o coffee is unbelievably good; creamy, robust and wonderfully presented. We've had many coffees on our 3 trips to Puerto Rico, and this coffee was the best we've had on the island - by far. It is reasonably priced, the service is friendly and genuine and they make the best coffee art I have ever seen!
You simply must try it when you're in Old San Juan. It's right on Pier 2, at the ferry dock to Catano.

“This place bucks the stars!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Why are we so obsessed with Starbucks when we travel? Oh, yeah - they have free wifi. This place is quaint, petite and near the water. The coffee is addictive. I had a cup. Then I had another cup. Then I had to buy beans. Then I had to buy pre-ground coffee to bring back to family. Then I had another cup. What can I say? The coffee is good. And everyone I have introduced to this place loves it. Just relax, have a cup, enjoy. Watch time stand still.
