Centered location in old San Juan. It's a clean, comfortable nice coffee place. I asked the young man who took my order to recommend a panini, it was delicious! Coffee was good too. Great service.

I am eating early in the morning, coffee and a panini for breakfast. Egg and asparagus on whole wheat.... Looked at the sandwich and could not see the asparagus. Answer: tiny flecks in the sandwich... there could not be more than 1/2 of an asparagus...More

More lunch in the morning than breakfast. Not a lot of eggs and bacon. But the sandwiches are fresh and good. And there are sweets.
