  • One of my top 3 favorites places in San Juan. I always have an awesome time. Love the vibe, the food and the service.
  • The food isn't very special but the coffee is really great! The service is also pretty good. Love this little spot.
  • We have been here February 2016 upon a bicycle round trip at Puerto Rico. A wonderful Island. We enjoyed our coffee and refreshments. Friendly staff.
