Why not drink your coffee at the place where its being roasted 6 feet away from the cash register? Get some sandwiches or snacks and a cup of coffee and plan your strategy for shopping and eating that day. Most of us were eating sandwiches...More

This place is wonderful. They don't serve traditional breakfast but I happily had a turkey sandwich with my amazing latte. I go here as often as I can when on the island.

Loved the great service by Mariana the owner. Great coffee from the lovely town of Yauco. Cuatro Sombras is located in a great spot facing the incoming cruise ships, has an awesome patio al fresco and a great European-Boricua feeling. Highly recommend it.

The title pretty much says it all. I recommend starting your day with one of their delicious guava butter croissants and an expresso. The bagged coffee makes a great souvenir for yourself or friends. enjoy!

This is San Juan's local version of Starbucks. It is more pintoresque, but as expensive as Starbucks. Very beautiful on the inside although a quite small space....

Agree with most other reviewers here, the coffee here is outstanding. Satisfying and flavorsome with none of the over-roasted bitterness one finds in so many tragically hip triple shot NY coffee shops. The speed with which it is served is a something of a shock...More

Some of the best coffee we've ever had. Locally grown and roasted on the island. This coffee has hints of cinnamon and other spices and the coffee tastes rich even w/o cream or other additions. Great staff, nice place to take a break from shopping...More

More lunch in the morning than breakfast. Not a lot of eggs and bacon. But the sandwiches are fresh and good. And there are sweets.
