Fun spot

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.

My son insistet that we visit this place. We were a party of 11, and it was raining, so the outside seating was not available. The tables accommodate 4 people at the most. They have some good traditional Paraguayan beverages and small plates. Is more a place for "merienda" a mid afternoon snack common in Paraguay.

Cafe de Aca has a light food menu and is a real "cafe" in that sense. The setting is comfortable with several outdoor tables both in the front and the rear of the restaurant. One of the few places you can get a decent breakfast in Asuncion (folks rave about the french toast- it was ok)

The coffeeshop has tradicional paraguayan food like chipa, sopa paraguaya, terere, aloja. An excellent Paraguayan brunch... The staff is very good, the atmosphere is nice and calm. Lovely!

Very popular among expats. Very good food (specially traditional Paraguayan food: mbeiju, pastel mandi'o, mandio chiryry etc.) and good service.

The garden is very pleasant. The service was friendly but the drinks were slow to arrive. We had the pizza which was ok but a bit bland. We also had the salteado lomito, which was nice and not too oily but not very flavorsome. Needed some chili!
