The Poet’s Passage

The Poet’s Passage
February 27th, 2015

When you hear about a coffee shop that has an  “excellent” rating on travel websites, you’ll know that it’s special. And in fact, The Poet’s Passage is more than special – it’s extraordinary.

The reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor praise the shop for its coffee and the artsy vibes inside. The Sun Sentinel Blog even mentioned the place as one of the four things to enjoy in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Coffee Shop

You can find The Poet’s Passage in Calle Cruz in the City Hall square in Old San Juan. After spending an entire day of sightseeing you’ll probably want to go to a nice place to relax and sip some invigorating coffee. The Poet’s Passage is the place you should go to.

First of all, The Poet’s Passage wouldn’t really be a hit if they served inferior coffee. Fortunately they passed this test with flying colors. The coffee is really good, and they serve cold drinks too such as iced lattes.

Then of course for some snacks you have a plethora of options, and all come with reasonable prices. There are sandwiches such as the tuna curry sandwich, and others can munch on beans, spinach, and salads. Everything served here is fresh.

The service is also very quick, and the staff is friendly and polite. What’s more, they also offer free Wi-Fi. It’s also worth mentioning that the bathrooms are quite nice and clean.

Hangout Place for Local Artists

But what really distinguishes The Poet’s Passage is that it’s so artsy. There’s no denying the unmistakable artistic ambiance permeating the place. You’ve got local crafts strewn all over as decoration and that’s just the start. It shouldn’t exactly be a surprise though, because the proprietor is a famous local poet named Lady Lee Andrews.

On the walls are various poems printed on all sorts of materials. Some are painted on canvas, while others are printed on posters and tiles.

Every spot in this coffee shop is a nook for poets. At every table, there are also some pens and scrap paper where you can scribble down your poetic musings before you forget them. This isn’t just a place for you to appreciate poetry, but also a place which can inspire you to create poetry. No wonder local artists like to hang out here. If you have any artistic aspirations, even just hanging out here with all these artistic and creative folks may encourage you to become like them.

The Poet’s Passage also has a gift shop and the definite artist bent is very obvious. These aren’t souvenir items made in a factory in China. You can be sure about that.

And every Tuesday, you can try to get a spot for yourself during the weekly poetry readings. This is one of the more popular artistic events in Old San Juan, and just being here can bring out the artist in you.
