  • This place is the best place to get inspirited. To feel relaxed and let the all around Muse inspire you through this wonderful place were everyone is friendly and welcoming and make you feel like you have another kind of family. I've been going for moths now especially on Tuesdays nights for the open mic were you can tell your story. And the food and coffee are just great and don't even get me started on the desserts! The passage is always in my heart :)
  • This is officially the most amazing place in San Juan, what a pleasant experience, not only is The Poet's Passage a great place for coffee/tea, but it is a wonderful creative atmosphere that is a haven for writer/artist types. The owner, Lady is such a warm and special person, it is rare that you ever find a business owner that really makes you feel so welcome. The Poet's Passage is such a breath of fresh air and a must visit for tourists visiting San Juan. Beautifully decorated and adorned with Lady's unique poetry, The Poet's Passage was the most unique experience I could have hoped for while visiting Puerto Rico. I even attended a poetry reading which I was invited to personally by Lady, it was so incredibly memorable.
  • Walking around old San Juan, we happened to stop here, and I'm so glad that we did! There's really good coffee, snack options, poetry on the wall and cozy, yet interesting decor. It's just the perfect place for an afternoon break on a summer day.
  • comfy couches, slow paced, puts you in a reverie and induces lethargy. if you want a break from the walking around old san juan and want to feel like a traveler reading your magazine and lazing around, do stop at this p[lace.
  • A cup of coffee surrounded by poetry and more. Nice menu. Tourist prices.
