This cafe is most frequently visited by foreigners, but the staff is friendly and attentive to tourists and locals alike. The prices are a little high for the area, but nothing unreasonable.

This is a great little café, perfectly positioned by the lookout out where the two rivers meet in Tena. Sit in for a couple of hours enjoying great coffee or ice cream and good WiFi. Staff are friendly. They have several guidebooks and sell postcards and chocolate too. A great find.

A really nice café situated next to the park. I had a very good breakfast here. It's a little bit expensive but the staff is really nice and the food is worth every cent.

We popped in for a quick bowl of soup and it was very good. The Cafe is close to the foot bridge and island park, so a good location.
