A full service cafe with excellent coffee, drinks, smoothies, and food. Yes the service can be slow but only because the place is often packed. There are many seating places inside and outside. You will need a map or some specific directions to find it the first time. It's in a residential and boutique area. Prices are reasonable for the... More

I simply love this place. It isn't the cheapest cafe to go to, but it is always a wonderful experience. Love the food, the ambiance and the location. Great for those of us who enjoy spending a quiet afternoon with a book and a cup of coffee.

How in four weeks I had neglected to visit Cafe Aca I've no idea. last day of trip and not a lot of time to spare but calling in to cafe aca enroute to the airport seemed a good idea. On arrival we told our waitress and sure enough our order for four was delivered to the same high standard... More

I still cannot fathom the enthusiasm with which a friend recommended this cafe. We went together one Sunday. I ordered an Irish Coffe, specifically asking it they use Irish Whiskey. A lukewarm, almost cold liquid was served that had Scotch instead of Irish Whiskey. The Apple Cake had a nasty heavy crust and the filling had no spices in it.... More

Nice mixture of indoor/outdoor seating. Good service, friendly, prompt enough for a relaxed, but not dragged out meal. I visited with "locals" who helped me select local cuisine, and it was all excellent!! www.elcafedeaca.com I ate the Yuca eggs...eggs and yucca cubes, and drank terare, the cold version of mate. VERY good.

The ambience is excellent, they updated the wire chair concept (silla cable) very popular here. You can also have an order of Terere or Mate which I find very innovative. Overall I enjoy visiting this place with friends.

This is a great choice for breakfast or lunch in Asuncion. The pastries looked amazing, but we were there for lunch. The salads and sandwiches were above average (and really great for Asuncion), but it was the Sopa Paraguay and Mbeju that they make that we'll remember. They were the best takes on the national dishes. I just wish they... More
