The WIFI is good and there are enought tables

They sell food and beverages. The WIFI is really good for Santa Cruz. The service is not so great ... the food is OK but really nothing to fancy about. The beverages are OK bot nothing to fancy about either many street juice stands are better. Neverless so far a good place to stay for a few hours... read more

Someone told me that this is the best coffee shop in Bolivia. Bad news for you that if this is the best in Bolivia I'm so sorry that you're not going yo find a good shot in this country. The espresso is very bad, they don't know how to make it or how a good one should be...

I went to Alexander coffee one day and it took ages to get the menu. When I ordered my Croissant with ham and cheese, it was warmed up in the microwave and destroying the crispy part into a soft ball of fat. The second time I went there I went in to the courtyard and waited for 15 minutes, tried... More

Of the several times i have been here in the last several years I have eaten twice maybe four times max. The rest of the times I left before I could even get a server to come to my table. The service here has becone the punchline to many jokes I have heard in the city.

the stuff is very lame and without motivation. So when you come in the restaurant all the stuff can see you, but you have to wait about 30min to have your menu card and when you did your choose you have to make attention at the stuff, because without they will not come to you. it is the worst stuff...

What a delightful place to have a cup of coffee. We opted for iced coffee and shared a beef omlette. There are some wonderful pastries as well. I wish I'd had room for a piece of cappuchino cheesecake! It looked delicious.

Their outlet at the Torre Duo, 4th ring, has nice outdoor seating and airconditioned interior seating, which is very comfortable when going for business to this important business building. Lunch snack fast, juices fresh, coffee hot. Good for quick bite!

They've nailed the look and feel of a cafe that's comfortable to sit down and talk or browse on the free wifi. The deserts are ok, the main dishes are lackluster, and for being a coffee shop . . . Barf! I do not like the coffee at all. I've tried it so many different ways on the menu and... More

The waffles were delicious, as well as the huevos rancheros. Good strong coffee made like in the US. Pricey, but it's on the plaza and geared towards tourists, so that's what you get. Service is variable.

I went to the sucursal on Monsenor Riviero, it's place for gringos, but perfect to sit down and get some work done drinking coffee. The huevos rancheros are tasty, but a bit simple and the portion is relatively small. You can tell it's a chain.
