There are way too many things here that I want to buy...in addition, they have spoken word a couple of times per week...you can call for the schedule: (787) 721-0564. Great living museum of poetry and art.

My wife and I were captivated by this shop which featured works by local artisans. We obtained some very nice souvenirs of our visit to Old San Juan there.

Just stopped by to see this gem (read reviews on Trip Advisor). Didn't try the coffee and poetry night on Tuesdays only, but I fell in love with this place! A magical coffee shop/store with walls covered in poetry! I could've stayed here all day!...More

This shop/coffee shop is awesome! In a world of copies this place is original with poetry on the walls, for sale on tiles, with live music, comfy chairs, cool gifts. It's a must do!

As we strolled through Old San Juan, we stopped to grab a cup of coffee w/ the beau - it was the only local coffee shop open past 8PM. Couldn't drink the whole cup, though. The brew was extremely hot and bitter. I recommend they...More

I saw the great reviews of this shop, and I was hoping to find some good quality mementos of San Juan. It turns out it's just a gallery dedicated to prints in varying sizes of quotes, some of which are quite trite. Apparently there is...More

Poet's Passage was a crafty little art shop in San Juan. There are a variety of sayings - some emotional, some loving and others just poetic and thoughtful. They have all different sizes of art, cards and more. Great for gifts.
