This coffee shop has great natural fruit juices and my mom loves their famous quiche. This last time they had a pumpkin flan that was the best I've ever had. It's a great place to stop and unwind after walking in Old San Juan.

We went to Café Poético for breakfast. I had a latte and a pastry. My husband and I enjoyed our food and took the chance to go the little shop next door. The café is quaint and quiet. I would definitely recommend it.

Los Cidrines is definitely one of the best places to have a quick and inexpensive breakfast in the San Juan area. Although known for its excellent bakery style sandwiches, Cidrines starts early every morning with a variety of breakfast dishes like eggs, omelettes, hot cereals,...More
