1054 Calle Gonzalez, Urbanizacion Santa Rita, San Juan, Puerto Rico, 00925

A tea room/health food store/cultural gifts store. As of the beginning of 2014, the only fair trade tea shop in Puerto Rico. Serves local coffee, hot chocolate and shakes, acai and local, mostly organic, fresh fruits. Try the massala chai. Also offers in-house-made pastries. Vegan and gluten free alternatives are available. Uses only bio-compostable utensils, no plastic or foam. Free Wi-Fi. Reported closed, Mar 2018.

Conscious eating - Edit

This lovely tea shop offers vegetarian and vegan options. For the coffee and other drinks they always offer a wide range of options like cow milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, and soy milk. The soup is always vegan and delicious. There are some other snacks like hummus and chips, cookies, muffins, chocolates, etc. Some of the snacks are vegan and others are vegetarian so be sure to ask. Everything there is to eat or drink in this store is delicious and of high quality. They also sell other stuff like jewelry, backpacks, toothpaste, etc. It sounds odd but keep in mind that this place is more of a Fair Trade shop than a restaurant.
The owners care a lot about the environment and society. Most of the products sold there are either Fair Trade or made locally by very responsible people. This, along with a very friendly staff, creates quite an unique place. Totally worth visiting if you are in Puerto Rico.

Pros: High quality foods and drinks, Friendly staff, Pleasantly unique

Cons: It's hard to find a parking space near by

A Place To Go - Edit

This review is long overdue. While shopping in the town of Rio Piedras the choices for Happy Cow recommended places did not exist till now. The CHW is a place that is located pretty much at the end of your shopping journey. It's not a large place. There is setting for about 12 people all together. It's food section is not very large but what they do have you will be satisfied. They sale a lot of other things apart from their food choices so your shopping experience does not end there.

If you are in the area give them a try. You may like all you eat and see here

Pros: Friendly service , Unique foods To Try, The Overall feel

Cons: No Parking near The Place, It's location... Took A Little to Find
