Description
Located in the heart of the Old San Juan for over 10 years, Blessed Café is one of the best kept secrets in the area! This friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar features authentic Jamaican creations paired with a fun and lively atmosphere. Using his grandmother's own recipes of Jerk Chicken, Curry Goat and Ox Tail, Tony has made Blessed Café a regular stop for repeat visitors from the local area and from afar. For those of you who are familiar with these specialized dishes, you will not be disappointed with the delicacies of this authentic Jamaican restaurant. Vegetarian entrees are also offered, along with a great selection of beers and spirits to compliment your meal. Besides the culinary experience, you will also enjoy the smooth sounds and vibes of reggae artists like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Glen Washington, as well as live reggae music every Saturday night at 10:30 PM. We invite you, your family and friends to visit us for a truly unique experience in Puerto Rico!
