    They were out of pretty much everything. No gluten-free breads or pitas. They were also out of half of the rest of the menu. The salmon was good. It’s just hard to pay $23 for a lunch entree which is just salmon and three fried plantain slices. The meal was supposed to come with sides of rice and beans and mofongo but three were out of those too. It also took a really long time. Like an hour to get our food from when we walked in.

    I ordered the old Gluten Free San Juan Breakfast: 2 eggs your way, choice of bacon ham or applewood sausage, potatoes, small pancake, gf pita bread and guava butter. I could have just eaten the gf pita bread and guava butter all day AMAZING!!! I ate the pancake plain bc it was caremlized and so delicious. The entire meal was satisfying, filing and fresh. Also I had fresh black coffee which was amazing! I wish there was a cafe Berlin at home!! So nice to eat gf when traveling and be safe.

    Ate here twice on our vacation. our first waitress (Amanda) is gluten-free as well so I was in good hands! For dinner I had the gluten free pasta! It was fantastic. Another day we had brunch and I had the gluten-free pancakes.......AMAZING!!!!!! I had no reaction to either meal and the food was delicious. HIGHLY recommend.

    So many gluten free options! The banana pancakes were incredible. Ask for Amanda to be your server - she is also gluten free and can take great care of all your allergies!

    Great experience! Had their gf banana pancakes eggs and bacon for breakfast and it was amazing! Staff was very knowledgeable. However, limited gf options, but few options were delicious! Went back for dinner another night and enjoyed a gf pasta dish, tasty!

    This was my favorite place in all of San Juan. The Tequila shrimp gluten free pasta was fantastic!!! I went back 3 days during my stay. The strawberry mojito's are fabulous. Wilson was our waiter and he was the best!! I definite suggest this as a stop on your visit to Old San Juan.

    The food was good. I had the gf banana pancakes, which were yummy. Also, got fruit and scrambled egg whites with pico de gallo (like chunky, fresh salsa). Mango mimosa was another nice addition. However, service was terrible. It took the waiter 10 minutes to get to us after we were seated, everything took a long time, and the bill was so long in coming, we wondered if they really wanted us to pay. It was our first day, so we wrote it off as island time, but literally every place since then was much faster.

    Cafe Berlin, started serving Gluten Free Pancakes for brunch. It's was not great,however, they are making an effort. The waitress told me that are workings on a GF menu! Everything else was delicious! I hope that I'm going back to PR their menu is completed.

    We happened upon this adorable little bistro while sight seeing in Old San Juan, and were ecstatic to discover that they offer gluten free pasta, pizza and pita bread options. They also have vegan cheese and vegetarian options, as well as a variety of other menu options that can be made gluten free.

    Gluten freekin' good pita and pizza breads! It's not easy to find restaurants in Puerto Rico that know what gluten free is, but this place has plenty of options that are delicious and healthy. Plus I got to see a fun celebration in the adjacent square. I will be back!

    I was excited about this place seeing as though they had GF pizza and pasta on the menu. The waiter was very friendly, but had no training on gluten-containing ingredients. He told us the Portobello appetizer was safe, but when we asked if there was soy sauce, he said yes. He also suggested an entree with soy sauce after we told him we couldn't have that. Whatever we ordered was not their specialty...the mashed potatoes were cold. They did have a delicious zucchini, mint, and lime juice.
