Very cool place to go for a cold drink, a sweet or just a chill. A lovely backyard on the river or air conditioning inside make it an ideal place to escape the heat. We came here twice during our visit and both times the service was fantastic. Prices are pretty standard for Uruguay but the beautiful setting and free... More

The location is excellent and nice that it is on a beautiful street that is not that often frequented by tourists. Don't miss it, Maggie the owner is wonderful and she will regale you with stories or leave you alone, as you wish. A wonderful place for a coffee and some sweets, a light lunch or just a refreshing drink... More

A cute cafe with a variety of options. Nice outdoor area to relax and enjoy your drink. Staff was very friendly. Worth a stop to relax and enjoy one of the variety of drinks they have.

Lentas maravillas was discovered while wandering thru beautiful Colonia del Sacramento. You may overlook its very simple, but charming outside - basically, an open house door and a blackboard in front of a typical Colonia residence - but once inside, you will find yourself very comfortable in a place full of personality. Excellent coffee and many menu options using Uruguay´s... More

We visited Colonia del Sacramento when temperatures were nearly 100 degrees. Lentas Maravillas was a cool, comfortable spot with a beautiful view of the garden and the water beyond. We opted to stay indoors in the air conditioning and enjoyed fabulous, refreshing orange sherbet drinks while seated in what looked like someone's former living room. The room is filled with...

After going to a place close by that served us fake "rosado" wine (red and white wine mixed together in the back kitchen), this place was a fresh of breadth air. Right along the water, Lentas Maravillas was relaxing with its lawn chairs, good wine, and wonderful service!

A place to taste a wonderful coffee in a beautiful garden. And a great view. Beside this, the place is lovely, full of books and paints.

Description
Lentas Maravillas isn't exactly a restaurant, it's a coffee shop/tea-room that also serves lunch and occasional private dinners. We are a small venue that sits up to 14 people in our living room and up to 16 people in the garden. We like being small because we can provide better service to our clients. We specialise in gourmet sandwiches and salads in Summer. In winter, in addition to our sandwiches, we make a spicy goulash and a chicken curry...There's also a hot, fiery soup to welcome our clients as they wait for their food to arrive...Desserts are home-made and some of the cakes are a revised version of my mother's Austro-Hungarian recipes.
