Super chill, great pancakes

Stumbled upon this place with no prior info about it. Was passing by and instantly knew I'd love the place. Laid-back, chill music, several cubby holes to make the whole place seem intimate. Ordered mate and pancakes. The mate was authentic and strong, the pancakes were legit, big and fluffy... read more

A quaint house and patio made into a cozy café. The coffee and empanadas are great! Try the coffee with Bailey and the Caprese empanada.

I had three days in Asunción, and never did I think a "restaurant" would be the highlight of my trip, but it was. To be fair, I will say that the "company" I was with really added to the experience, but as an American visiting Paraguay, my night at Cafe de Aca was very memorable. A+ for the atmosphere. This...

This was a fun spot to have a bite with friends, relax, and chat. Highly recommend. The food was good (they have lots of typical small dishes) but the environment was what was really nice. It was great for people watching and chatting. Very lively!

You might as well be in a park cafe, perhaps in Paris, maybe in Central Park... Friendly, quaint, all class, delicious. Probably the best cafe in town.

Beautiful decoration, great service and an amazing take on the traditional food of the country. In my opinion it's a must see for the city.

I loved spending time here, for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon snack. There is a backyard with a charming atmosphere, a nice place to have tea, milkshakes, cocido and other Paraguayan specialties as well as delicious cakes!

it is for the younger crowd. I went by default as 3 other restaurants I was trying to go to either moved or were closed. Service was helpful as only one person spoke English. It was also slow. Had to wait awhile for dinner. However food was good and very reasonable.
