Description: ENJOY THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY WITH US. Tatiana, Don and baby Sebastian (owners) personally run this little cafe. We serve Irish hearty homemade breakfasts and snacks FROM 7 A.M, TO 1.30 P.M. We don't yet offer lunch or dinner but our sandwiches on Irish homemade bread are a filling lunch option. Our coffee is of a very high quality and our menu is simple, daily made and delicious. We offer you a great meeting place to talk to other tourists or read our tourist tip books.We also have English books for sale.

“Deserves to be Num. 1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

El Condor is absolutely wonderful. First place in Bolivia I was able to find a French Press, and great great coffee to boot. The breakfasts are wonderful as well! Large delicious portions. Quickish (for Copacabana) internet. The owners are really what make the place though. They put so much love into their shop and it's a great place for travelers to convene and share advice (look for the books)

“Excellent cafe in Copacabana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Excellent coffee, brilliant breakfast, and the only cafe open early enough in the morning to get something to eat before heading out to Isla del Sol. We went back the following day and were vert pleased to find that lunch was just as good!

The owner gave us loads of useful tips for the local area, and the guestbooks are full of suggestions for the rest of South America (which was very useful when it came to planning to the rest of our trip).

Don't leave Copacabana without going to El Condor & The Eagle!

“Flying high! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Fully deserves the number one spot on tripadvisor.  Family run cafe perfect for breakfast, second breakfast, brunch or lunch.  The homemade soda bread is lovely and perfect with the amazing homemade baked beans or fluffy scrambled eggs.  Pots of tea with milk on the side or a french press coffee with hot milk on the side wash down the food with joy.  The icing on this tasty metaphorical Bolivian Irish made cake was the Christmas music and decorations that made us feel excited for our return home for the yuletide period.  Don't miss it.

“Best place in Copacabana by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We found the cafe on TripAdvisor and ate there on each of our 3 days in the town. Its opening hours are 7am - 1pm, if it was open later we would have probably eaten 3 meals a day there. The Irish owner is warm, helpful and genuinely interested in his customers. They have notebooks filled with tips and stories from other travellers, very useful. The food is great, fresh, simple, tasty and reasonably priced. Coffee was the best I had in Bolivia by far. I had it French press, Italian pot and machine style, all delicious and well brewed. I had the special - fresh homemade muesli, cold natural yogurt and fresh fruit, topped with honey, 3 times in a row, gorgeous and very filling. My boyfriend had proper Barry's tea, homemade Irish soda bread, fluffy eggs and yummy baked beans. There's a calm atmosphere in the cafe and you can feel how important the place is to its owners, you know it's not just a job to them. There's a varied selection of books you can buy, along with CDs and beautiful handmade stationery. The food is available to take away if you want and you can refill your water bottles at minimum cost. I could go on but there's no need, this cafe is unreal!

“Real, honest, homemade food drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Having read the reviews, we stopped by here for a coffee.

Firstly, this coffee is freshly roasted, bought from a local Bolivian exporter. And you can taste it! I worked in the Sandwich and Coffee business in London for a couple of years, and the flavour of this blend is really up there!

Having enjoyed it so much, I decided to try the homemade baked beans on toasted Irish soda bread. All homemade, all delicious, all better than I've ever had at home... And only 20 bolivianos. Absolute bargain.
