Never had a frustrating dish. Great breakfast and brunch food. Good backyard with a fountain where kids can wander a bit. Must try the Mbeju Caprese

This coffee place is an amazing hidden gem with a great inside garden, very nice decorations and delicios menu. It is a very good place to have brunch, food is tasty and there is a great variety of coffee types to choose from. We would come back again.

Cute place - great for lunch/ brunch. Cesi Gross across the street is better. Seating is some what crowded with small tables. Feels like a typical lively brunch place, which is actually hard to Find in Asuncion.

agte an excellent lunch at Kamabu we went to Cafe de Aca to take a drink and relax. It's a nice and pintoresc Cafe with local dishes, handmade cakes and a cozy atmosphere. Service is not very quick but prices acceptable.

Good food, inspired in paraguayan cuisine, nice ambience, not expensive, but very slow attention! Come if you're not in a hurry. Otherwise, highly recommended

If you want to have quick experience in typical Paraguay tea ceremony, visit here. Mate and its variety is available with Mbeju. Almacen del Palataで美味しいサンドイッチを食べたあとは、ここでまったりティータイム。コシードという焦がしマテ茶とベジュというチーズスナックは絶品です。

The available choices are more suitable for a snack than for a full meal. Try the "cocido quemado", "mbeiju" and "chorizitos al vino". Expect good portions, usually fatty (as per local culinary tradition)

This place is great for a break time but is better if you go with a friend. The menu is original and complete. Coffee is quite good, so chipa is! The problem I found is the space, it can be a little uncomfortable for people like me, who likes reading while enjoying a coffee; you can hear others' conversations as... More

If you are in Asuncion you should definitely step by. The attention is amazing and the dishes combine traditional food with contemporary gastronomy. Personally, I encourage you to try the mbeju with pepperoni and green leaves, you won't regret it.

Great combination of Paraguayan traditional food and some contemporary dishes. Space is a bit tight so getting a table during peak hours can be challenging.
