Great place to eat breakfast and lunch. The portion sizes are large at a good price. You can either order inside to take out or wait to be seated. Staff is very friendly. can't go wrong if you want a good food!

My last visit I receive a sandwich with two dice of tomato, one leave of basil y half round of onion. The manager told me "that's the portions size" bad service, I wait a lot of time and receive a a leave of basil.

I returned the sandwich, and they give a extra salad Porno Surfer. Look the photo.

OMG! I will be back. I totally enjoyed myself. I had the Mallorca breakfast Sandwich with egg whites. For those who may not know, as I didn't, Mallorca is a sweet bread native to Puerto Rico. Deliciouso!!! The sandwich is enough to share and the cost is $6 bucks. The cafe...smooth! As I watched other plates go by the presentation was very well executed. Now don't let the location fool you. It's in the Ashford Hospital, well outside of the hospital so I'm sure there are peek hours but I'm here on a Monday at noon and its not bad. Make sure you come by and try the food. I wasn't disappointed at all.

Great place to eat breakfast. The portion sizes are incredibly large at a low price. Tables are located outside mainly with some seating inside. Pinky's was recommended to my wife by another friend. It was well worth it. Located near the hospital and adjacent to other stores, it was steadily busy. You can either order inside to take out or wait to be seated. FYI, space is limited. Our kids were amazed at the size of the pancakes with a different taste and texture. It tasted like they were partly made out of sourdough bread (kids loved it!). They also served lunch and dinner. You can't go wrong if you want a BIG breakfast on a tight budget!

I stopped here for lunch in July after receiving recommendations from several friends. The restaurant is a sandwhich shop with a few tables inside and some outdoor cafe-style seating. Th menu consists of sandwhichs and salads. I had the surfer panini. It was good but not exactly what I was expecting based on the reviews I received. In sum, this place seems to be somewhat of an institution in this part of San Juan, and seemed popular with the locals. I am glad I went there for that reason, but did not find anything terribly special about the food. The service is quite quick.
