The Poet's Passage



Poets Passage is a coffee shop centrally located on the Plaza De Armas in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico making it the perfect destination for a healthy quick lunch during a day of taking in the historic sites.

Offering a selection of fresh quiches, including vegetarian options, and wholesome salads made on the premises, it provides a welcome alternative to the usual fried fare.

They also have a delicious range of cakes, red velvet, chocolate fudge and carrot, a perfect side to your hot beverage.

The layout of the shop feels reminiscent of Starbucks in its early days, with large sofas meaning customers settle in for the afternoon to read or work.

However the coffee on offer is far superior to any chain-store rival. Prepared by expert baristas, a cup meets the standards expected of Puerto Rican coffee.

Then in the evenings the shop often plays venue for many open-mic nights, which attract local talent. They serve alcohol at these events.
