Good coffee and hot chocolate, also offers tasty soups, sandwiches, healthy salads and cakes. Good spot on the square and serves drinks to go. Would recommend.

My fiancé is Australian and always is on the lookout for a flat white. He was so happy when he spotted this place, and the coffee didn't disappoint! My friends and I enjoyed a little break from touring the city there, played around on the wifi and read the newspaper. I had a cappuccino and it was great. He loved... More

Alas, my journey to find good cafe coffee in Chile continues, unsuccessful. I'm not sure why there are good reviews of the coffee on here, perhaps they got a different barista on a different day. My cappuccino was weak with more of a milk taste than coffee. My girlfriend ordered a soy cap and noticed the weakness too. We ordered... More

Reminds me of Australia! Good variety of food, and tasty, well made coffee. Friendly waiters, and there's usually someone who speaks english

We had an excellent coffee here today at a reasonable price. The place is well located and while we didn't eat there the menu looked good and well priced. A lovely spot.

We went for a chai latte & Americano which tasted great after all the Nescafe instant coffee you get down here. Only weird thing is their door would lock whenever it closed. Not sure why they wouldn't just have the latch unlocked.

Maybe I ordered the wrong thing, but it was a hot day and I asked for an iced capuchino. It turned out to be a watery coffee-flavored drink that didn't even look good. And it was close to $5 USD! But it is a good place to sit for awhile on Plaza Sotomayor and they have lots of magazines to... More
