Kasalta Puerto Rico: My Favorite Bakery, Deli, Coffee Shop, Wine Bar, Sandwich Shop, And Place to Hang Out

Kasalta Puerto Rico Review is part of the Despacito! TPOL Moves to Puerto Rico Trip Report.


I know what you’re thinking. Surely this can’t be TPOL’s favorite bakery, deli, coffee shop, wine bar, and sandwich shop. Has he not been to the Cheesecake Factory? Indeed I have and unlike the internationally acclaimed Olive Garden, I’ll take a hard pass on ever going back to the factory.

Sandwiches! 

Kasalta is known for its steak sandwich but it’s worth trying them all.

Wine

Kasalta has a wide assortment of wines, some are very expensive. For $25, Brisios can’t be beat.

Meats

Arby’s is a fraud. Kasalta has the meats. And cheeses.

Coffee 

Ordering a double espresso is a challenge. Sometimes I end up with the double shot I need after a meal like this. Most of the time I end up with a tall black coffee. ‘Expreso doble’ means something different to each person.

Is There Anything Bad? 

The short answer is no, but I will say that the main dishes aren’t as good as the casual fare. Save the room for sandwiches and dessert. How do I know? I’ve tried everything.

Cost

Don’t be surprised if you go in for a sandwich and leave with a $100 bill. Since it’s cafeteria style, at least no tip is required (see Pressured Into Tipping! I Hate Credit Card Processing Tablets).

TPOL’s TIP: Kasalta is located at 966 Calle McLeary in Ocean Park.
