San Juan Restaurants

Kasalta

Updated 03/28/2014

Fodor's Review

Those who think coffee can never be too strong should make a beeline to Kasalta, which has an amazing pitch-black brew that will knock your socks off. Make your selection from the display cases full of luscious pastries, particularly the famous quesito (cream cheese–filled puff pastry) and other tempting treats. Walk up to the counter and order a sandwich, such as the Medianoche, made famous after President Obama ordered one during his campaign on the island.

For dinner, dive into a fish dish, paella, or do like the locals and make a meal out of the savory Spanish tapas. Occasionally the quality can be uneven, and some staff members are curt with tourists.

Like a New York Deli on Sunday Morning

I love the Jamon Serrano (Spanish dried ham similar to proscuitto)

Great food and staff

I was very pleased with the staff at the bakery. People seem to forget that this is their home and they try to accomodate people of different cultures. It is not that they choose not to speak english as the person from Seattle stated. They have great food and they employ people from outside of the U.S.(Dominican Republic) and from the Island. I've been there with my son-in-law who is Italian and my daughter's fiance, they both loved everything

about it, from people to atmosphere.

A must for Dessert

We go to San Juan at least once a year and besided having lunch at Kasalta while staying at our favorite Guest House, Numero Uno, we always come here for dessert. Only two block walk from the beach. The BREAD PUDDING is to die for.

Good Food, Great Value, But Strange Looks

One of the best things about this place is Free Parking, you will learn this is a rare thing when visiting San Juan. The food is good, but think cafeteria with sandwichs, soups and simple items. I suggest going here for breakfast because of the danishs, croissants, palmiers etc. or to pick up dessert, they have LOTS of 'em. But be aware, this is NOT a tourist place so plan to read everything in Spanish, and to get more than your share of stares.
