They serve typical cafe fare but have a nice selection of fruit juices that are fresh and you can get without sugar.

Fantastic courtyard and good food. I was delighted to find a place with breakfast options late on a Sunday morning. Just need to improve the service -- very hard to get the servers' attention.

Quite a fun selection of deserts and cakes as well as coffees and sandwiches. All was good, and the best Frappuccinos I have had in a while, including the one I had at startbucks back in Santiago, Chile!! For a light lunch/dinner or good snack: the place to go.

The interior is one of the most inviting in town. Always busy at the front, but nice courtyard at the back for lengthier stays. I was not impresses with ice creams (apart from the maracuya flavor), or with the desserts (I tried most of them). But this is a general problem with Peru and it would be unfair to hold... More

It is in Puerto Maldonado's main square. I liked "Cupuazu" and "Araza" ice cream's flavors. Also I really recommend "Causita Limeña", it is so delicious.

Awesome cafe on the Plaza de Armas on the river side. Great sandwiches and empanadas, fantastic ice cream with lots of jungle fruit flavors (loved the maracuya) and some of the best juices I've had in Peru (mango-yum!).

This is a very popular place for ice cream and sandwiches. They are centrally located at the Plaza de Armas. Ice cream is two soles for 1 scoop or four soles for 2 scoops. Very yummy, especially on the hot days (everyday).
