St. Germain was a great find in Old San Juan. Very comfortable place with interesting artwork. The food was super fresh and really delicious! Paola was really friendly and very helpful with menu suggestions. The Creole sandwich was perfectly spicy and delicious. Try the fresh ginger margarita for a refreshing drink.

Every year we come to San Juan we make time to visit the St. Germain bistro for lunch. They serve a fascinating mix of French and local dishes. Great food at reasonable prices.

I am still yearning for their coffee!! Went to Sunday brunch. Hovered at the door and pounced the second the clock turned to 10a. Everything was delicious, the interior was charming and cozy, and the service was extraordinary. My 2 teenager daughters and I would go back in a heartbeat!

Nice place to visit, the food was clean and fresh, vegetarian options, good service. They have a couple menu to choose, but its better to ask for individual plated.

This was absolutely the best meal of this week. We had the mozzarella tower and Cervichi app and both were amazing. Our sandwiches for the New Yorker and the Patrick with chicken and goat cheese added.

We loved it here! Very cute, small cafe! We had lunch, came for drinks - extremely friendly staff, and good drinks (loved their Mojito w/brown sugar !!) Highly recommend for lunch. The other menus looked good, but we just can't speak directly to them.

Small intimate space with fun and interesting decor. The menu is not extensive, but every on it looked great. We really enjoyed the specialty drinks to begin the meal. Staff was friendly and helpful.
