259 Calle San Francisco, San Juan, 00901

This 105-year-old lunch counter and bakery, a stone's throw from the port in Old San Juan, is where to come for a perfect café con leche (poured from a 1940's coffee maker) and a plate of mallorcas (light, buttery pastries, sprinkled with powdered sugar). The place became famous when Rachael Ray featured it on her show in 2005; though the cracked-leather booths here are often filled, it's worth braving the crowds.
