Great little cafe for morning coffee and puerto rican style breakfast. We loved it and very reasonably priced.

Love this spot. I had a mallorca for the first time and it was delish. Tried to have a mallorca at Starbucks and after having it at Aroma's, there was no comparison. Now about the coffee, I usually need cream, sugar, more cream, more sugar. But, I decided to be adventurous and take the coffer the Puerto Rican way, black.... More

My hubby and I actually found this place just walking around and enjoying San Juan. The food and coffee were excellent! It wasn't too busy when we went in so it was a nice and intimate lunch break. I wish I could remember our waitress' name, she was very nice and friendly. The food was very fresh and so good!... More

The coffee is strong and delicious; the food was slightly better than average; the environment was lacking. This hard-to-find was a favorite of one of my travel companions, so we went back several times in our week-long vacation. The service was always pleasant and the coffee the ideal pick-me-up. Great place to visit if you're dying of heat and caffeine... More

Ok, went here on a tasting tour and we had coffee and a Mallorcas sandwich which was delicious! I am not a big coffee drinker but decided I had to taste Puerto Rican coffee and I was glad I did! They have their own brand called Mona Lisa (Italian name but whatever) and it was great. They served it like... More

This place was delicious. Coffee, sandwiches out of the world. Went back on our own for breakfast and that was great as well. A must stop if you are in Old San Juan!

Have been here twice now and both times were excellent. Had the mallorca ham and cheese Puerto Rican version of a monte Christo which was excellent. Coffee is from a local Puerto Rican coffee farm and excellent

As a coffee lover - I was thrilled that this was our first stop on my Flavors of San Juan Tour. The coffee was delicious and my husband had a cherry drink that was made from caribbean cherries - again - absolutely delicious! This was accompanied with a sandwich that was sprinkled with powdered sugar and I was full when... More

While waiting around for our Taste of San Juan Tour, we stumbled across this little shop. My husband was complaining that he needed a little snack before the tour. The employees were very nice and made suggestions of things to try that were local. We ate too much but it was delicious! We then went to meet up for our... More
