  • Nice place to enjoy ice cream or coffee from the corner, the only thing that disturbs is that a lot of beggers come around you.
  • Its a beautiful place to visit nice dining room coffee shops around the area
  • Old Spanish style plaza just in front of the City Hall and the Mayagüez Catherdral, originally built in 1763 a wooden structure, after several reconstructions through out the centuries, the masonry structure we see today was finished in 1922.
  • Simple and beautiful, lets take a coffe there.
  • Lovely place. I recommend having a coffee in Friends Cafe or if you want something cold there is ice cream near.
