My favorite spot for a late lunch in Viejo San Juan, not open for dinner. Keep in mind, Puerto Ricans serve a BIG lunch, much like a dinner meal. You won't leave hungry. The place is extremely popular with locals and visitors for a reason and the Owner and Manager strive to make everything run smoothly like a well-oiled machine. There's Fish, Chicken, Salads, Soups and a full bar in the back. Plus, I LOVE the old time music. Sitting at the counter is FUN! Yay Manolin!!!!!

We actually planned on eating breakfast at a different place that said ti was open for breakfast, but after we walked there, they opened at 10 or 10:30 (cannot remember) and we were too hungry to wait. We found Cafe Manolin sort of on accident by following a local and seeing where they went. Not at all disappointing. It's like a diner, which I really liked. And it was not touristy at all, which was to our liking. The food was simple breakfast food. The coffee was perfect. The prices were very fair. We were very happy that we found this place.

They have and "S" shape counter that takes you back to the old times dinners that is so nice. They have great prices and a great mofongo. I was attended by a Jesus who was funny and charming and had great advise on what to eat. If you go there you will not be sorry!

So sorry we waited until our last day to go here for breakfast! Best food value we've had in old San Juan in 6 days! Thought we'd be in a hurry so we got bacon and egg sandwiches in case we had to take some of it to go. I don't know what they do to make it so good and I don't care. Yummmmm
