they have the best coffee in town, (simple Black colombian coffee), the Thai curry was amazing and I think I would totally go back there again if i visit Iquitos in future with more friends, they have very comfy seatings too.

Tipically tourism trap, overpriced and kinda "trendy". The coffee is mediocre at best and the service hopefully had a bad day because it was raining. Wont go there anymore.

If you miss Americanized hipster food, this is your place. Vegetarian meals… overpriced. It was okay. Probably more appreciated among my yogi and more urban buddies who were with me than by me, but I really liked local Peruvian food.

An excellent place for a vegetarian tourist. Cozy, good service, good design, delicious options. A mixture of styles: hippy, native and naturalist. This was our favourite place.

A nice coffee shop with artistic atmosphere. I felt a spirituality in that place. I can recommend it either for a lonely moments....

I was really looking forward to eating at this cafe but I found the food to be subpar, we had to wait forever for seating and there was live music that was super loud but no one really wanted. It was impossible to have a conversation with our friends. All in all I was pretty disappointed with our experience.

Food was delicious and the place has a really mystical feel to it. They also have a very generous happy hour. Their coco sours are a must.

Food is good, and the menu has many vegetarian and vegan options, but the service is ridiculously, unbelievingly slow. Your food can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours (yup) to get to the table. Dishes arrive sporadically, so it's more common than not for your plate to arrive a long time after your companions have finished theirs.
