I stumbled upon this place by accident, I really wish they would advertise. It was great. Great atmosphere (a bit rustic), the service was great and the food was fresh and simply delicious. They sell mimosas, have every type of waffle on the menu, and a very impressive selection of teas. I think this is more of an adult place... More

We didn't expect such an inventive menu -- but the waffles were creative and great tasting! Interesting combinations of food and they are vegan and vegetarian friendly!

Recommended to us by someone at the hotel. Very good waffles with "sweets" and good coffee. Played great jazz music for the ambiance. Some unique combinations - - -Would definitely come back.

Went for breakfast this morning & it was everything I'd hoped for, and more. The breakfast waffles were just absolutely excellent. But the dessert waffle.. oh my. There are no words! Absolute best I've ever tasted.

I was told about this place from a couple that I met the day before. I made a stop in and was amazed by the atmosphere and food. Pesto , tomatoes, chicken and cheese on a waffle sounds like it was going to be a weird tasting waffle. To my surprise it all went wonderful together.

As I always do, I do research concerning what's good to eat at my destinations. This place came up as a good breakfast place. In my opinion it's an ANYTIME place. Their waffles were amazing great and the way the prepare their coffee is different to say the least. I look like a science experiment. If I had to say... More

We stopped here for breakfast after walking the city wall and cruise pier waterfront. Great menu with many selections which were served at appropriate temperature. Only complaint was the one bathroom that was occupied by a long-term resident.

Happened upon this joint while wandering around Old San Juan. Everything here is waffles and they are delicious. Eggs poached on the side, fresh fruit and strong coffee. Only downside is lack of Wifi. Let's go, Waffle-era. It's 2017! Otherwise their place is terrific!

Came in around noon. There were only two other tables (table of two and table of six). Gave up waiting for two 1/2 waffles after waiting 45 minutes. Too many other restaurants. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!
