Small but fancy joint I found while tooling around San Juan. What a neat town, great people and my new hangout. The food is DEE-lish and the street is just a blast to hang on. Check em out!

Excellent, eclectic, wonderful. This is how I describe the Ramos House Cafe. The location on Los Rios Street is quaint and you eat on the patio next to a historic home. The food is southern homemade goodness.

This was our second visit and it was as good as the first. I love the ambiance, the food and the staff. The Wild Mushroom, Roasted Garlic & Sun dried Tomato Scramble was amazing and the Pomegranate Mimosas were wonderful. I recommend getting their early for brunch (they open at 8:30am) to avoid the line.

Pros: Incredible Cinnamon Apple Beignets

Cons: Sometime the line can be long

The pommegranite mimosas are delicious, as are the sweet potato fries. The restaurant is truly charming, with all outdoor patio seating, complete with birds chirping, and a nearby train station.

I love this restaurant. The food is awesome and unique! The Ramos House specializes in Contemporary American Cuisine. Great place to go for a Sunday morning brunch, and you must try the Bloody Mary's!

We paid $377 for 6 adults and 1 child to eat french toast.... Need I say more? Seriously though, after we had signed our bill and left, the staff decided to add on a $63 tip (on top of the mandatory gratuity that had already been added to our bill) - I still have not received a call back from the owner-in-residence and am resorting to calling local law enforcement tomorrow.

RIP OFF.... THIEVES....

Oh, in terms of the actual food: every item was over-cooked, even the side order of bacon arrived at the table too nasty to be considered edible.

In terms of service: We had to chase down a waitress after sitting there for 17 minutes just hoping that one of them would even look our way... We had to ask three times for the child's food to be boxed even though it was initially ordered to go.

The Ramos House Cafe feels like you are having a meal at a friends house. The garden seating area is beautiful and the atmosphere is lovely. I always get the french toast, its amazing! They serve drinks in adorable glass mugs and all the tables are set with mismatched silverware and plates. Brunch is the best time to go, they have a set menu. It is pricey, but you will enjoy every moment. Arrive early and put your name on the list, then take a walk through historic San Juan.

Well worth the wait - once your seated you will not want to leave to quickly - hence the long wait- the food is delightful - friendly service - a perfect place to share lunch with good friends - don't forget to pick up a copy of the restaurants cookbook.

Cons: I can't get enough of it!

This place is wonderful. You feel like you're in another world with the rustic decor and beautiful ambiance of old town SJC. Food is very unique and prepared perfectly. Great place to take out of towners or to go on a sunny day. Definately try and go on weekdays as the wait is significantly shorter. Also try the owners other restaurant -- Iva Lee's in San Clemente.

Bloody mary's are the best. Most of the time, the wait is forever for b'fast, so don't come hungry, or you will die from waiting.
Needs to change menu, but if you've go a few times a year then great!!! Lunches are not the greatest, but B'fast is the bomb!!!!

My all time favorite place for breakfast! Old town where homes are tee rooms, restaurants. and artisans. At Ramos House seating is out side under the sprawling trees on the patio, across the tracks from remodeled Train Station. Sit in the far corner and watch Amtrak go by while smelling the fragrant herb garden in the adjoining area. The seating area is surrounded by an old wooden picket fence overgrown with shrubs and wild vines just like my Grandmothers house. A little bit of rustic nature in the city. Very romantic. Watch the staff pick herbs for your meal. Dont miss the Bloody Marry with spiced green beans and Crab Claw.
