Vegetarian/Vegan Brunch at St. Germain Bistro & Cafe

We went up to Old San Juan a few Sunday’s ago to meet up with our favorite, soon-to-be-wed  couple Zuleyka and Pepe. Raul  had gone to the restaurant for dinner while he was staying up that way for a conference last month. I had read about the vegetarian options served at this restaurant when doing research for other stays and day trips in the area but we never got around to going.

Parking Close by

The parking closest to the restaurant is called La Cochera (they validated the ticket for the first hour of your stay at the restaurant). Ask the parking attendant to direct you to Calle Sol which is up the street and around the corner from the parking garage. If you are walking around you will have to walk up pretty far from Paseo de La Princessa area. But the good thing about that is you get to see the great architecture of Old San Juan.

Once we got to the restaurant that seats about 40 people, it was buzzing with guests and employees. We were goin to eat brunch for $17.22 (plus tax) in Old San Juan which is a pretty great price considering the location. I had previewed the menu on our ride up and sorta of knew that I wanted a sandwich. So for that price you get you choice of coffee or tea, juice, green or fruit salad, your main dish and side, plus dessert!

I ordered the Siciliano which is a black tapenade, mozzarella, tomato, pesto sandwich on a baquette with the side of fresh garbanzos.

I also ordered the fresh fruit salad with orange/carrot juice and for dessert a nice restaurant made carrot cake. The best thing about everything I ate was that our daughter of nearly 11 months could eat as well. She loved the kiwi, granola, watermelon, bananas, and the cinnamon lightely sprinkled over all of the fruit. I think if we would have ordered another fruit plate for Daniela she would have eaten that as well. Everthing I shared with Daniela minus the carrot/orange juice was delicious. We even took some extra garbanzos from Pepe.

Raul’s platter and brunch experience was custom and he’ll explain how the staff catered to his needs.

Raúl’s Comments

Different to many locations where hey have a set menu and will not change if for you, St. Germain caters to the dietary needs of each individual.

In my case I requested a vegan meal and the manager Mayra was more than happy to switch the many options on the menu for a Vegan Sandwich which is on their regular menu called Patrick. I have been trying to stay away from coffee for some time now and I also appreciated the fact that St. Germain had tea as another option. There Lemonade was fresh and refreshing and their fruit salad was delicious.

As in my other visits to St. Germain they are very consistent in how fresh the food options taste. If you are in Old San Juan on a Sunday, I have to say my recommendation would be to stop at St. Germain and enjoy an awesome brunch in a fresh and cozy place.
