Barista is a chain, but it doesn't feel that much like a chain with its personal service and delicious pastries. It's first and foremost a café, and a lot of people come to grab a coffee off of Parque Central, or to use the free Internet with their laptops over coffee or tea. The place is scrupulously clean. I have not tried the new breakfast offerings and a year ago I'd been little disappointed in the sandwiches, but I haven't tried those recently so they may have improved. The staff are always pleasant. I live in the area and usually drop into Café Barista whenever I want to just relax for a little while, or meet with friends.
