  • This is a must visit if you are in San Juan. Their hot cocoa is superb and the sandwiches are great. I would really recommend. 
  • Steps from the municipality of San Juan, you'll find House cuts. It is a place where the Foundation cuts located at the second level and the choco Bar in the first. The Foundation is a non-profit institution and offers lectures and extremely interesting and educational workshops for the whole family. You can also follow them on Facebook so that you know the schedule and activities. It then passes the Choco Bar... simply an experience out of this world. From snacks made with one of the best chocolates in the world up to its menu for lunch or dinner. The attention of staff, the decor and atmosphere is visiting it. If you're not a fan of chocolate, don't forget to give you the opportunity... you will never regret it. Can also take bars of chocolate or any gift as a souvenir for someone special... just amazing!

  • We had a great time at Casa Cortes. The service was great and we so enjoyed our meal. The decor was very interesting. We sat next to a wall that was covered in metal chocolate molds. We will come here...  more »

  • Great place for the chocolate fix. This breakfast bistro has access to an art gallery upstairs (operates on a different schedule than the bistro). The atmosphere is very modern and bright full of local art and the chocolate grilled cheese was pretty amazing with a cup of coffee! Win!!!
  • We had churros with chocolate sauce, chocolate pizza, and chocolate martinis. It was all very good, but the churros were fried in the same fryer as French fries, based on the taste. They were still good with the chocolate sauce, but could have been better without the added flavor.
  • Good food even better dessert. Churros were amazing. I got chocolate bars as gifts for $1 later found then at Walgreens for 89 cents.
  • Being a chocolate lover. I'm in love. You'll find from the simple hot chocolate to the exquisite plate there's chocolate in food and drinks. A+++
  • Service was good. I had the grilled cheese with chocolate which was very mediocre. My wife had a sandwhich which was honestly just bad. The taste was alright but it was dry and the bread was really hard. We also ordered some tostones with chocolate ketchup. Neither of us were fans.
