I visited this place twice while in Sucre. The menu del display for 40 Bolovianos is fantastic. You get a starter (3 choices), a main (10 choices) and a tea / coffee / ice cream (12 flavours). The food was exceptional for the price. The Belgium owner is also an extremely nice and accommodating guy.

We went there and it was amazing. The food is great, the ice creams and deserts are excellent. The boss is Belgian and is a great person who has a nice word for each client.

Ate there 5 times in 9 days. Yves (from Belgium) and his Fabi from Bolivia have created an excellent gem in the center city square area. Appetizers to full meals the food is good and the Bolivian wine inexpensive. Home made deserts and gelato ice cream. Great conversation with Yves - high tech background transplanted to Sucre!

Run by a Bolivian woman and her Belgian husband this is part coffee shop, part ice cream store and part restaurant. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and the café is located on the main plaza of Sucre. I would highly recommend it for a snack or meal.

We went here for coffee and a dessert of some kind. Great selection. Very tasty treats. Good location on the square and not too pricey.

Abis is a nice, little cafe located on the main city plaza. It serves sandwiches, burgers, salads and desserts (including home made ice cream). Service is fast, the restaurant is cozy, and prices are very reasonable (though, they only accept cash).

My family had dinner at Abis Cafe on August 8, 2016. We have eaten at both the Cafe and Patio (the Patio now appears to be closed) over a number of years worth of visits to Sucre, and found it in the past to be reliably good if not a bit expensive by local standards. Unfortunately, we were truly underwhelmed... More

Indeed we have closed Abis Patio about two months ago because we are building in the back. We preferred to close it for a time and move all to Abis Cafe, because we don't want to bother our customers with construction noise, neither with dust. We realize of course that the patio has gone for a while which is sad.... More

First of all: the smoothies are amazing! Peach and strawberry was so good. Went for lunch twice - I think sitting downstairs is a bit nicer as there's a bit more buzz and you can look out onto the plaza more easily. I ordered the burrito and would say it was more like a chicken wrap - it was good... More

All our dishes are carefully prepared and handled so you would not have problems with the bowels. Don't worry to eat our salads or fruits. All sorts of breakfasts are served as well. We aim for excellence in all we do.
We are open daily from 08:00 till 22:00.
