Cute little coffeeshop in the heart of Zona Colonial. Although it's close to all main attractions, its location a block off the main street is quiet. They have cookies, typical breakfast dishes, coffee and free wifi.

My boyfriend and I are coffee shop connoisseurs so we were very happy to try this place out. We got there and ordered coffees which weren’t bad but our experience went down hill once our food arrived. My order was fine but they messed up...my boyfriends order not once but TWO times. He ordered an omelette and by the second mess up he was so hungry he straight up ate just egg & had to take all the omelette filling out because it was all wrong. I appreciated them taking his order off the bill but then I realized how pricey this place is. Just for my order (an omelette), 2 coffees & 1 water it was well over 1200 pesos (25ish bucks). You’re likely to get cheaper food, better service and a better experience else where.More

Coffee was okay— not burnt. The food was not good! We got a crepe and eggs. The crepe tasted freezer burnt; definitely not fresh. Service was okay— we got our coffee a few min after ordering whereas food came more than 40 min later even...though we were the only customers there.More

Very filling crepes and a kind server, plus nice atmosphere and free Wi-Fi. Didn’t try coffee so can’t speak to that. We’d come back.

Found this spot while walking around and was stoked to grab coffee because the place looked so cute. We asked the girl for 2 expresos over ice with milk and I swear instead of making 2 separate expresos she ran the machine for almost 10...minutes and split the coffee into 2!!!! That is NOT how an expresó is made and you do not run a machine for so long. The coffee was horrible and we ended up throwing it out. We would never come back.More

We were happy when we first found this place for breakfast. Good AC, cute and as soon as the drinks came out we thought we were in luck. Good coffee, fresh tropical juice and not too sweet. The waffles were very good and so were...the eggs over easy. The scrambled eggs looked very odd; the color was off and did not look very appetizing. I asked for a side of toast and they brought little slices of bread that looked like croutons not toast. You might like the scrambled eggs and the little toast; this things could be a matter of preference. The real problem with this place was the service. Two guys behind the counter on their phones. Took forever to bring our drinks, the drinks were actually very good. But when I finished my coffee they never offered a refill or second cup. Just left the empty cup there. They did not carry straws which is fine if it is for eco friendly reasons but no explanation was provided. Overall, they just looked like they didn’t want to be there. The food also took like 30 minutes to come out but we were away on vacation and were not on a rush so at the time we didn’t care and thought we would be back because the prices were reasonable. But the next day, we were thinking about breakfast and the consensus among our group was that no one wanted to wait so long to eat and so we went elsewhere. This is too bad for a place with good ambiance and decent food. Get new front house personnel and you might have more business.More

cute country style cafe in the zona colonial. No highchair (this is a big one for us to come back to a place). Service was very slow. We tried ordering our drinks while we decided what we wanted to eat but the server said we...couldn’t order that way, we had to do just one order at once. I ordered a pineapple juice and it was un drinkable because it had soooo much sugar. I always ask for my natural fruit juices without sugar but here it wasn’t an option. After we ordered, it took about 45 minutes to get our food!! The good was good. I had a veggie crepe, and my son had a chocolate and banana crepe which was very good.More

This is the type of places I like to visit, seem cute great ambience and food looked good. Everything was good but I wish they didn’t make me wait over 20 mins to take my order, instead they seem to be playing around behind the...counter while I waited. A bit overpriced but food and place is greatMore

Charming, adorable cafe with great food. My husband and I ate breakfast here all three mornings of our stay in Santo Domingo.

Very nice and confy place, good place and quite to past by for a coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is well designed with different kinds of choices to make. The prices are to high for a few plates, considering the portion and the...ingredients.More
