I visited here a few years ago and it was on the top of my list to revisit. Loved the mofongo with yuca and the flan was amazing. Cute and quaint and a tiny bit cramped, but definitely worth the wait if there's one.

Food portions were nice, the cornbread sticks tasted great. But my Red snapper was dry and tasteless, and the food was quite pricey. Not what I expected for what I paid for.

Located right off of Old San Juans charming squares, this Cafe churns out quality drinks and food that depict Old San Juans roots well. Seating is not plentiful, so plan your visit accordingly, but it is worth the stop for lunch.
