Very good food, lots of options/flexibility and the atmosphere is cozy. The staff do a great job of managing the Sinday Brunch lineup without making you feel rushed.

St. Germain was recommended to me while I stopped for coffee at another cafe. We sat on the rooftop which opened at 4 (I went on a Saturday during February). We stayed for drinks which were well made. The music and views of the cross streets gave it a relaxing, conversational vibe. Definitely worth checking out for some good drinks!!

Great atmosphere, tasty sandwiches and salads and will absolutely return on my next visit to PR. Deserts and drinks were also outstanding. A great place for lunch or early dinner.

This is a very nice place for a quick and tastful lunch. I was there three times and tried sandwiches and salads, all were well prepared and tasted great. Good service and the food came quite fast. The second time I was there they recognized me, and the third time I was welcomed as a regular! They were out of... More

This is a solid choice in SJ, you will not be disappointed. We came for lunch - menu was long, many original options and some common choices, including simple kids menu. Sandwiches were very tasty, and ceviche was also great. They also have a third-floor open patio that looked very inviting when we passed this place at night, but we... More

We visited twice and had outstanding experiences. First we visit their Mezzanine Bar for Happy Hour which extended to 8PM. The tropical drinks were super and the reduced price small plates provided us a fun meal. The Taco Carnitas are special so give them a try. The Guava Cosmo is a delicious twist on my wife's favorite drink. Trip 2... More

Tucked away in the middle of beautiful Old San Juan, this is a lovely spot for brunch. We had a peek at the dinner menu which also looked great. The service was great; the waitress was full of recommendations and nothing was too much trouble.

First off, their iced tea was so quenching after walking in the hot sun. It was unsweetened which is my preference. Most of the places had sweetened tea which was way too sweet with too lemony. The Romano salad was excellent!! I would order it again. Nice waiters, service was a tad slow, but not bad. It's fairly small but... More

Trying to find our way to the sights in Old San Juan we came across this cute bistro. My Blt was tasty but I don't think my hubby enjoyed his omelette to much. The area was busy celebrating festival so many places had a long wait. I've waited longer at other places but this was worth the wait. Affordable with... More
