  • My ever favourite place in San Juan. 🧡 I used to work with a cruise line and had the chance to visit the city many many times. If I wasn’t shopping or exploring around this cute little coffee shop was my one and only place to stay. Loved the atmosphere, the coffee ☕️ the pastries. 🥐🥯🥮🍰 I spent endless times reading all the poems displayed inside. 📝❤️ I even had bought one in the shop. I hope I can be back one day. ☺️
  • It is a cute place with many poems in nice and casual frames plus phrases or funny expressions. It is also a cool place to get a present for those who love dogs and cats. At the back you wil find a spot for poetry presentations or just to sit and chill in a quiet atmosphere.
  • It's a wonderful place to go and chill. They have a night of open mic where great poets expose there art. You need to visit this lovely place.
