“Hip, Creative-types hang out here for coffee, dessert and to write! GREAT relaxing vibe...”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

A local hang-out, especially on Tuesday night's when it's Poetry "Open Mike" night. This is where the "creatives" enjoy themselves thanks to the warmth of the owner "Lady" and her husband. It used to be a Starbuck's, now it's more like a hip morning/afternoon spot for locals and those who love them!

“Great Spot”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

While in Old San Juan, we stopped at this locatin for a coffee after a recommendation from a local hotel. The decor and atmosphere is excellent and not to mention the coffee. Definitely worth the time if you are close and in need of your daily coffee fix.

“Stop here while strolling in Old San Juan !”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

While strolling in Old San Juan I stumbled upon the store, that carried beautiful poems and special gifts to take home that you will not find anywhere else. Right across is the café, which is super cozy, has excellent sandwiches and coffee, great service and just the right atmosphere. Stop here and unwind, enjoy the scenery and read the poems !
