The food wasn't the best I had but I would still say it's a place to try at least once. The view outside the window is also really nice. You get to see the ocean. Also this restaurant is close to two movies theatres and mall. The service can be a little slow when there is a few people in... More

We found this restaurant in search of a good place in the Hatillo mall. Although we found some mixed reviews we decided to give it a try. I'm glad we did! The service was great even though the server told us it was way busier than most Mondays. The food was fantastic! We started of with the ceviche, which was... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time just to have some drinks and the place is nice, so we returned with some friends to have dinner. The food was really good and service was great. We will definately return.

Went to new Mugs located in Plaza del Norte, Hatillo and was very nice environment, great people (family and before 9pm, professional, business people, etc). Music (acoustic rock) was great. Enjoyed tapas, chops and "majado" soup was really exquisite. Prices are ok for portion received. Great taste. Please, update this trip advisor information in order to comment about new locations....

This coffee shop has excellent quality food but is very expensive, who pays more than $6.00 for a sandwich! There are very good and interesting books, but they are more expensive than their real price and look disorganized, very dirty and used. The dust jackets of some books were scattered across the floor! I hope this restaurant can benefit of... More

The place is a coffee shop with books to read while drinking an exotic coffee, with a scrumptious cake or even a great sandwich with an authors name like Shakespeare or something. The atmosphere is really nice, specially on week days. The prices are a little expensive but very good quality food. When your by the area it's worth trying... More

I'm a regular in this place. This is a coffee shop that has a built-in book store. The book store is not Borders, but this review is not about books ( though I had found interesting books)! They have a wide variety of coffee drinks (cold, hot, and gourmet). They have their own cakes and cheesecakes made out. They also... More
