About us


Established in 1987, La Marginal used to be a small sandwich shop named Latin American Cafe. After it got purchased it got transformed in to a dine-in restaurant. Re-opened in 1999, La Marginal became a casual dining restaurant, offering Puerto Rican cuisine and warm hospitality in an Old San Juan decorated building.
