I tried the much lauded Ponche Suizo drink and really didn't care for it. It was 2$ for a large glass and I found it too sugary. The flavor was too sweet. It was a nice mousse I guess but not what I expect after all the rave reviews here. Had a nice cheap breakfast for 2,75 though that came... More

We came here to try the fzmous drink and have some cake. The owners were really friendly and happy to chat, we got the article about the drinks history (good for Spanish practise!) The ponche suizo was pretty tasty, after much discussion we think the fruit is similar to pumpkin spice. But it will remain a tasty mystery.

After a walk that fell into the water, we had a small lunch here: cofee and empanadas. The owner also gave us the drink the cafe is named after, poncho suisse, and an article about the drink. It is very nice, so is the owner and the food was tasty.

The suizo reminds me of sabayon and was delicious! I also had a coffee with amaretto, condensed milk and suizo which I highly recommend.

I went there because I was curious what the cross between a shake and a mousse will be like. I was most surprised by the taste! Difficult to describe and since it is not at all expensive, just go ahead and give it a try yourself.. Maybe this one helps: it takes the "Suizo" because their signature drink tastes like... More

It is a small coffee shop with one treasure, the Ponche Swise. It is a soft fruit shake very tasty. We also took the Capuchino combo with an almond cake and it was also good. We strongly recommend.

You will not be disappointed if you go here, they do the best juices and shakes, you can actually taste the fruit. They do a great toastie also. The staff are very friendly. I would certainly recommend this place for breakfast or lunch. We were only disappointed that it was closed two other times we tried to go back.

Went in to try the famous shake and wasn't disappointed - unusual and tasty but definitely didn't need a large one as it was pretty rich! Yum :)
