Caficultura, Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

Some say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and on a couple of occasions I made it my priority to grab a table at Caficultura to start my morning right. Located in Old San Juan, this cozy cafe felt like a bit of old and new Puerto Rico under one beautiful roof. It was here that I discovered Avena (Puerto Rican oatmeal) and sipped on a cortadito (Cuban espresso made with brown sugar) – two culinary firsts that I will never forget. Avena is hands down the most delicious oatmeal I have ever consumed. Far more creamier and made with ground / blended oats, this hot bowl of cereal was one of my favorite things I ate while in Puerto Rico.

Caficultura is very cosmopolitan and the menu feels like you could eat brunch everyday, with banana rum pancakes, coconut french toast, mallorcas, sandwiches and a variety of omelettes. I was fortunate to be with a group, so I had the opportunity to sample a lot of different dishes. Like most of my meals in PR, I ordered up a couple pastelillos (flaky savory pastries), which included ground beef and goat cheese & walnut – the dough was absolutely perfecto! If you see a savory pastry in PR, I say order it, you won’t be disappointed.
