Went there as it was right behind our hotel. It is a very popular breakfast place. Their Mallora sandwiches are nice. The prices are very reasonable and service is great.

Tried this one day, and although we preferred La Bombonera just down the street, their mallorcas and pastries were still very good and competitively priced. Not as nice in terms of atmosphere as La Bombonera either, but still very good.

This is an old restaurant/diner, with a lot of seats at the counter. Waiters in vests and bow ties and hats, quick service. Had a napoleon and a papaya shake, others had pressed sandwiches, all lots of fun, quick, and cheap. Very professional service.

We were on an Old/New San Juan tour and the tour operator recommended this restaurant. We both had Mallorca sandwiches, I had ham and cheese and my husband had cheese. Both were delicious, but the cheese one was better. Definitely recommend this place. It was...More

There are so many wonderful and delicious restaurants/cafes nearby. I am not really sure the attraction of this place is. It was not that great nor that cheap.

We stopped here for breakfast while strolling around . It is a real local place where a lot of patrons knew eachother . 3 members of the police force came in and ate at the counter.... a popular spot !
