“Really great cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

This cafe is situated in the central plaza of Potosi, in a beautiful old building with high ceilings, dark wooden floorboards, and a lovely atmosphere. The staff are super-friendly and make outrageously great coffee. The cakes looked really good too!!!!

“Nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011 via mobile

Ate a very nice lunch here. They had great coffee which can be hard to find in Bolivia.

The food was simple and very reasonably priced.

“Nice location, ok coffee, grumpy staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2010

We visited here a couple of times and the coffee was ok. The location is great on the main plaza opposite the cathedral and it is nicely decorated inside with a nice ambience. Staff are pretty rude however with notable attitude after you order. If they sorted this out, it could be a real winner.

“Average coffee and major attitude issues!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2010

Went here a couple of time while in Potosi and should have learnt the first time! Beautiful italian coffee machine but perhaps a few lessons required in how to use it properly. Man behind the bar was perhaps the surliest and unfriendly person working in hospitality in Bolivia! Didnt eat any of the food but the menu was certainly yawn worthy to say the least. If you want friendly professional service and seriously top notch food, head across the road to El Meson. They are BRILLIANT!

“Quiet place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2008

Very good cafe to have refreshment or snacking (not a great cook but ok). Cosy enough to forget sometimes the sound of streets.
Central location.
