The food was delicious, I had a vegetarian omelet with mozzarella cheese and my friend had a sandwich. Both were perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is lovely and relaxed, live music and beautiful decoration really make this place. Will be back!

This cafe is a funky set up, with some great art work and comfortable chairs. I ordered the Thai red curry and wasn't disappointed. A lovely blend of capsicum, carrots, broccoli and what ever makes their secret sauce. It was delicious and I ate every last bit.

Very good food, fresh juices, and a good place to meet up with international travelers passing through Iquitos heading to and from various jungle retreats.

This place was a little difficult to find however once found one did not want to leave. The food was splendid and the atmosphere is just so laid back and relaxed. Their green iced tea was a good balance of tart and sweet. I would say however that they had signs for a games room/book exchange and my friend and... More

I ate here several times in Iquitos and the food was really boring. I hear the owner sold up a couple of years ago and the food has gone downhill since - it's clearly coasting on it's previous reputation. Nice atmosphere and staff are pleasant.

I ate here with friends a couple of times whilst in Iquitos. The cafe is very relaxed but seating is slightly limited. Good pub style food and relaxed atmosphere. Good place for lunch or an early dinner.

I came here twice for lunch . It's a good place to chill out and it has a great wifi connection. I had the vegetarian pressed sandwich and it was delicious, so was their beetroot juice. The second time I had the falafel appetizer (I loved the hot sauce they serve it with) and a tropical salad. Both were tasty.... More

Nice and cosy place with great drinks and food. Staff is friendly and it has a good location by the Amazons. One favorite was the avocado with toast bread! Enjoy.
