“Lovely spot, wonderful staff & great mini cinnamon buns”
Review of Cafe Poetico

Cafe Poetico
Ranked #11 of 25 Coffee & Tea in San Juan
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 July 2017

We wandered into this little cafe to take shelter from the heat today. What a cute little place! And the staff make every effort to service you. Espresso and coffee are really good. But the gem were their little cinnamon buns. I admit it. I initially bought 2 which we devoured promptly. Soooo good! My husband snuck back and bought 4 more. Totally worth it. You'll enjoy this cafe. It's very cozy and comfortable.

An oasis of peace in the middle of the bustling old city. Come for the coffee, the pastries and the friendly staff, stay for the poetry that surrounds the place. A must visit.

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.

Cafe Poetico is part of the Poet's Passage in Old San Juan. The atmosphere, food and coffee are all exceptional.
Eat in would be my call but they do takeaway for lunch and dinner. They are also open until about 11pm every Tuesday while the poetry open mic event takes place in the passage.
Family owned, they care about their product and service. It's a daily routine for me now. Love it

Stopped in for a pina colada. Decided to get some empanadas. The drink was not that good but the empanadas were. The ambiance is very live and welcoming. The servers were very friendly and informative. We really loved the spoken word spot in the back and the attached shop.
