  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.
