This is a very nice little place! Close to the Sheraton, very rich, tasty coffee & sandwiches & pastries! We'd go again just for the coffee!

Coffee was freshly made and there is a small amount of seats indoors and outdoors if you do not want a take away. Food choice was very limited and not of good appearance , but if you just want a great coffee fix, then this is ideal.

First stop for us once we got to San Juan! It takes a bit of time as they make your coffee or cuppacino. We always get a casita to munch on.

We loved this place so much we came back every day for 6 days and bought more coffee to take home. The coffee is amazing. The staff are so lovely. The location is good, you can sit outside and have a glimpse of the water and cruise ships. Could not recommend enough!
