Very nice place in the middle of Asuncion. This is a good place to go after lunch to have coffee and juices with friend or to have a good meal. The atmosphere is very nice, clean and neat. The food is generous and well served. Service is good; even when the place is crowded, we got good service. I will... More

We decided to adventure into the local dining outside the busy areas of Asuncion and were rewarded with a great adventure. In Paraguay English is not a normal language. Visitors should have some understanding of Spanish to get along. El Café de Aca was just this sort of place. The staff did not speak English; however, we got a little... More

A good hang-out spot for all the people who frequent the well-off areas around Senador Long and its pricey shops and restaurants. Cheaper than most so very popular with Paraguayans which can have implications for seating and service at busy times. Food good and well-presented, nice decor and both indoor and outdoor seating options. (Indoor usually full, though)

Nice, pleasant atmosphere with a mix of young and middle aged customers enjoying afternoon tea or drinks. An ample menu of Paraguayan and coffee shop type food with a good list of beers and cocktails. There are plenty of tables, indoors as well as in the patio. Difficult to park in the surrounding area. Close to other bars and shopping... More

I had a very late brunch here on a Saturday. I sat in the court yard behind the building. It was lovely and the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon. The atmosphere is excellent. I went to El Cafe de Aca with the specific purpose of having Tereré. I also ordered the brunch item called the "Paraguay." My breakfast was... More

I really liked this place. They have traditional breakfast dishes from Paraguay mixed with global food. Nice retro decoration and well located in gastro and shops area. Beware because is always full on weekends!

Stumbled upon this place with no prior info about it. Was passing by and instantly knew I'd love the place. Laid-back, chill music, several cubby holes to make the whole place seem intimate. Ordered mate and pancakes. The mate was authentic and strong, the pancakes were legit, big and fluffy, topped with a rainbow of fruit. A top-notch place to... More
