Centered location in old San Juan. It's a clean, comfortable nice coffee place. I asked the young man who took my order to recommend a panini, it was delicious! Coffee was good too. Great service.

We stopped at a few coffee shops in Puerto Rico to try and this was my favorite one. I had a mocha and thought the balance of espresso and chocolate was perfect.

Great place to be and have great local PR coffee!!! I did not eat but they have sandwiches and snacks. They have an open patio inside the shop which is good for big groups. Two thumbs up because they're open until late!
