We were staying near this location and we liked it so much fro breakfast that we returned for the second morning. It is small and very busy but the service is excellent. We do not speak Spanish but wished we could as a lot of sign language had to be used but we managed to comprehend. One of the waiters... More

Our group needed breakfast before we headed out for a cruise. Wonderful!! Minus a slight language barrier, we got our food and coffee and had a wonderful time. Perfect portion sizes, great taste and the coffee was amazing. And the staff are SO friendly and helpful!!! I'm so glad we stopped here before heading on our vacation!

The coffee was excellent (European style rather than your typical Puerto Rican cafe con leche (which I love)), food was fantastic, I had what was essentially diner food, eggs, bacon and toast, but it was all fantastic cooked and had a european edge to...

We went for brunch and we had a risotto with eggs Benedict and to finalize with some sweet Red Velvet Pancakes. Those pancakes are so good that you want to return on daily basis to taste those. They are covered with a cream cheese syrup OMG. Very late back atmosphere, great for brunch.

¡Me encanta! The place has a very nice ambience, their food is great. I recommend the Pizza Brunch, as well the Rissotto Brunch. Their staff are very attentive, the restaurant serve very good cocktails. This is that kind of restaurants where you have to forget the world and enjoy every second of your presence there.

Café Marquesa is without a doubt one of the best breakfast & brunch spots in town. This is one of the few places that our entire family always agrees upon, even our teenage son...suuuper picky! The owner Tamara is always present, making sure everyone feels at home. The food...where to start... RED VELVET PANCAKES... and as if that's enough: Salmon... More

We were 4 and ordered 4 plates to try as much as we could...everything was amazing!! The risotto was my husband's favorite, I loved the churrasco, my daughter 's favorite was the pizza, and my son in law loved the red velvet pancakes. We all loved the acerola mimosas!! The service was amazing but we recommend reservations.

I really liked the restaurant! The decoration and atmosphere was great! The food was ok but the drinks were really good! Great history of the restaurant and a great place to stop in Old San Juan.
