Came for coffee and dessert after lunch and loved it so much we came back after dinner too. Cinnamon roll, passion fruit cheesecake, espressos, and muña tea were all excellent. Super friendly couple runs the place, enjoyed conversation with them. Highly recommend stopping here.More

Decent yet expensive coffee (americano - 8 soles) and a cool, loungy atmosphere. If you’re looking to spend a decent amount of time here, paying the extra 2-3 soles for a cup of coffee is worth it. If not, head elsewhere. Friendly service.More
