El Yunque Rain Forest Dining? OSJ too

We head to the rainforest in Puerto Rico soon and Old San Juan. Any must do dining tips please?

  1. In Old San Juan, not a fine dining place but a don't miss for coffee place is La Bombonera at 259 San Francisco. This is a bakery with breakfast and lunch service. Their sweetish Puerto Rican coffee is wonderful and their specialty is the "mallorca", a cross between an English muffin and a sweet roll that is first buttered then toasted in a grill and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Order "cafe y mallorca". This place has been there forever and it's an article of faith in San Juan. If I could magically be in San Juan for just one hour, La Bombonera is where I would go.
