Came here based on reviews. We were not disappointed. Great juices, coffee was just ok (had better). Brunch was awesome. We had the Risotto Brunch, Eggs Benedict with Canadian Bacon and we shared the Red Velvet Pancakes (because we just had to try them). Everything was delicious. The “boss” came over, explained the menu to us. Very nice guy! Would highly recommend.

Only added note...come when you have lots of time. Definitely on island time here, but we were on vacation, so no problem.

We went here for breakfast before heading off on our Old San Juan Tour. We ordered coffee, Avena and the Red Velvet Pancakes. The food was great. My daughter loved the pancakes and I loved the Avena. It was a nice consistency with just enough sweetness to it.

Service was fine but on the slow side. Food was good but not special. Pancakes were on the dry side and the frying of the potatoes could use less oil. Coffee was very good. As noted, on the pricey side with little additions for many things. We’d certainly go back, but will explore other breakfast options, as to us it is not spectacular or a hidden gem.

Staying nearby at the Doubletree we tried this restaurant one morning for breakfast after a short walk. It quickly became a favorite with the delicious food and coffee. They are also very aware of gluten allergies and were able to help me with my gluten intolerance. The servers were friendly as well.

I stayed in an Airbnb in the same building Café Marquesa is in so it was easily accessible. We came for breakfast once and it was great! I had scrambled eggs, bacon, and potatoes. My boyfriend had fried eggs, bacon, & potatoes.
Must say we both really enjoyed our breakfast! It was a little pricey compared to other spots but it was worth it. Coffee was also good.
Service was quick and easy.
