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.

Good Coffee and food. Try the Paraguayan on the brunch menu. The milkshakes, if you like something sweet, are very good. The egg dishes are also cooked well!

They have everything! They have healthy brunches, they have cocido (and man, it is goooood!), they have good yogurt, the most intensely flavored fruit, delicious mbeju, killer sandwiches. ALL IS GOOD! I had breakfast or lunch, or any one meal here, every day during my stay in Paraguay.

We had a great experience. The food was so good we had chicken croissant and churros. The service was very friendly. Only downside was we had to walk several blocks from the bus and it was a pricey. The croissant was only 16 mil and will fill you up but any actual entree was easily over 40 mil Gs.

We love Cafe de Aca for it's cute decor, chill atmosphere and great food! They serve lots of the typical paraguayan dishes, but in a kind of more upmarket way. They also have great sandwiches, pizzas etc. The service is sometimes a little slow and it can be pricey, sometimes the pricing doesn't seem to make much sense like a... More

The best place to have a good meal with a nice environment. The price is ok. It's located in a commercial zone, with many options of nice restaurants and stores. Try the famous "biju",

Good food, lovely patio, and friendly service. Very nice 'ambiente' ,which makes you feel at home. Decent prices and a varied, well-behaved, clientele. Worth a detour.

Very nice cafe with various indoor and outdoor seating areas. Beautiful boutique shops in the same street. I loved the lemon juice with ginger and mint as well as the apple tart. Hot salad (salteado), burrito and omelette were also tasty.

We went for breakfast and loved the decor and atmosphere. Always a busy place (I'm told) and I can understand why. The food was excellent and service good. Interesting to look around at all the decor. They have outdoor seating which would be great if it wasn't so hot/humid the day we were there. Highly recommend a visit to this... More
