We cAme here the last morning for breakfast, nothing fancy and good food all around. The juice is right from the orange and tastes that way. We got breakfast but the local dishes looked good too. Prices can't be beat!

This is a diner restaurant which has been around for 40 years. It seems as if the staff has been around as long.
It is definitely the best food deal we found in PR. It's not fancy. Basic breakfast and lunch fare, but the food is well prepared, the service friendly the prices very reasonable.
It gets five stars on value.

Great lunch spot! Ambiance is sort of diner -esque for lack of a better word but the food was amazing. We had pork chops, Mofongo and grouper. All BURSTING with flavor. Surprisingly the fish was the one that completely enchanted us. Finished up with warm flan and we were three satisfied patrons! Loved it!!!

On our first morning in Old San Juan we were adventurous and put breakfast off for too long. Just as we were about to miss out we came across the Manolin.

It was a classic old--time restaurant with a typical breakfast menu. The food was diner-style and VERY inexpensive. Two egg and cheese sandwiches and one coffee for under $11? Perfect.

We heard about Cafe Manolin from a local in Old San Juan and were so glad we had breakfast there. Diner type setting so it feels like back in the past. The coffee was wonderful and the breakfast was fantastic! I wanted to go back the next day too! Very tasty place to go. Not the best in friendly service but the food/coffee well made up for it!
