Its a súper fun small sized cafe, place is great they have a nice combination of juice, coffee and different flavored milks. I recommend it a 100%... Only cons. Is that you need to pay cash, other than that it's a perfect place to visit and have a snack or for te time. Attention is excellent as well and you... More

Came across this little tiny cafe, when we saw all the young entertainers from our cruise ship descend on it during their off time one afternoon. It is located right in the heart of the Concepcion artist, Unesco area. Once inside this tiny cafe, you will see that the walls are absolutely covered with napkins with messages written on them,...

Definitely a special little spot. Seemed like it's own microcosm within the world of Valpo. Crazy fun art and photos and trinkets covering the walls from top to bottom. Seemed like a pretty local scene or at least a long-term visitor scene. Really good place for a cerveza and/or a pisco or two.

We had the menu del dia. Good value for money, personally I did not like the dishes of that day (but that is personal!!). We got loads of bread and dips included, the staff was kind and the place funky. The menu is a piece of art. Special place, recommend to go here for a budget lunch!

We spent a lovely afternoon playing Uno in this great cafe. Walls are absolutely covered in colourful mementos and the atmosphere is just soo relaxed! Perfect for hanging out. Food was delicious as well, from fresh raspberry and pineapple juice, to hot chocolates, sandwiches and cake.

Color Cafe is downstairs from a hostel. The interior is 'colorful' and a lot of fun to sit in. The menu has a lot of variety from breakfast to dinner options and, of course, a large selection of coffee and tea. The service is friendly and the prices very reasonable.

Ended up in this restaurant on a rainy day. Although it was not busy the service was really slow. The food was ok, the coffee was cold when it arrived. Service was not great yet waiter was quick to point out he had not included a tip with the bill! Won't be rushing back

We enjoyed visiting this coffee shop. The ambience is nice, with really ingenious decorations on the walls and ceiling. They have loose leaf tea, but they could put more leaves as the tea comes out soft. The food was ok, not memorable. Service was slow and impersonal.

I have been at color cafe a lot of times (don't remember how many actually haha), with friends and with my darling. It's a very little place, cozy enough to make the perfect atmosphere for romance or flirting with the one you love. The walls are another world, so many posters and napkin draws (made by other customers), bills from... More

Cool, eclectic cafe with a ton of stuff on the walls. Patrons are known to (encouraged even?) Make little drawings on napkins to put on the wall. The coffee is good, large tea selection and they have grill pressed sandwiches for a decent price. Check it out.
