“Lunch in Old San Juan”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

My husband and I ordered the Lunch Formule, it included soup of the day or quiche, half sandwich, mix green salad and a beverage. THe food was FANTASTIC! The downside of the experience was the time and service. We were there for over 1.5 hours, not by choice. We were seated immediately, the place was packed, we got the last table. After ordering, it wasn't long before our drinks were delivered and then our quiche. And then it was over 30 minutes from after we finished our quiche that we received our salad and sandwiches. My husband had the Mediterranean, I had the Panino. Talk about fresh. The Mozzarella was so fresh and delicious, I almost wanted another sandwich, but I didn't want the wait. Vanessa was our server. She was very kind and friendly, but clearly was a bit overwhelmed. Regardless, I'd go back.

“Great little place”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Went to this restaurant on a rave from my sister-in-law. Although we don't always agree she got this one right. Went on Sunday for brunch. The place was jammed but we were able to sit at the bar. The food and the coffee and desserts were great. Even though the place was jammed and hectic the servers remained friendly. Excellent experience overall.

“great spot for lunch”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I had the quiche and salad, my husband had the Arabian - Chicken pesto sandwich. FOOD was great, SERVICE was so so... had to wait a long time for our ticket. But that is par for the course in P.R.... Good food out weighs so so service any day, the staff was friendly, I'll give them credit for that. Price was right too.

“I love it!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The first time I visited St. Germain was with my two best friends and we immediately fell in love with this quaint, comfy and delicious place. So much so that I now visit the place at least once a week. The food is always on point and the quiches never fail to impress. Service is always stupendous. Ask for Vanessa, she's amazing! I highly recommend visiting the place for Sunday Brunch, you'll love the Croque Madame!
