Delicious Home Cooking and Drinks in San Juan

At La Salita Café, you will come to know some of the Island’s best local artists and enjoy some of our delicious local foods and drinks. We work to encourage local organic agriculture by serving an array of traditional Puerto Rican dishes made only from healthy, organic food that is grown locally. La Salita Café not only supports local creative talent, but also celebrates the unique blends of what healthy Puerto Rican cuisine can be. For brew lovers like us, you will surely enjoy the delicious Puerto Rican artisanal coffee we offer from local growers.

La Salita Café is a talent hub for Puerto Rican Artists

More than just a live music and open mic cafe in San Juan, we also offer film screenings from our local independent filmmakers!

Much like with our film nights, with our art exhibitions, our principal function is to make the connection between the artist and the audience. So, we have the opportunity for audiences not only to introduce them to some really amazing art but also to the artists themselves. As the audience, wouldn’t it be wonderful to experience a beautiful rotating art collection and walk around with a cup of coffee while you do it?

This is now the best time for you to spend great moments with your loved ones and family. We also serve as one of the most fantastic boutique Puerto Rican galleries, delivering all the beauty of local art.

Our home of Puerto Rico’s best local musicians, artists, and poets is open to you.  Visit us today and enjoy the fantastic experience of this poetry, spoken word and live open mic music cafe.
