Great big fresh salads. Homemade quiches. Fresh squeezed lemonade. A bit if a tight squeeze in seating arrangements but very cool atmosphere. Decently priced. Friendly staff even assisted us with getting a stroller in the door. Refreshing stop on a hot long day of walking.

Stopped in to get out of the humidity and experienced the best lunch. We shared the Leaning Tower (buffalo mozzarella, avocado, tomato and pesto) and Potita salad. Our server Aurelien was attentive and a genuine added pleasure.

This place is one of a kind. I love the fact that it feels like a revived version of the original building. One Caviat is that if you are planning on going upstairs to the rooftop or the 2nd floor bar, you will have to...More

Definitely - they offer tons of salads, soups and fruits as an alternate to their baked goods. While I'm not sure if any of their breads are gluten free, they alternative options are delicious.
H - We will be in San Juan on March 13th 2015. We'll be a party of six. Do you accommodate gluten-free celiac diets? There will be one person in our party requiring this. Do you have any example entrees that can be made gluten-free?
