In San Juan you have a selection of places to choose from, each offering their own specialties. Across the island more and more places are popping up.

Degree 18 Juice Bar is a favorite spot to hit after a hike in El Yunque. Set on the main street through Palmer, they have amazing smoothies, acai bowls and vegan snacks such as veggie burgers, wraps and yummy vegan empanada. Food is fresh and made on the spot. Lovely outdoor seating area with a new roof built so you can hear the pitter patter of rain overhead. Dogs are welcome, and they don’t use styrofoam or single-use plastics. Being on an island, getting away from single use and styrofoam containers is important for the environment.
