Quite famous cafe right in the Centro, very crowded all day long (with queues being normal). Very nice atmosphere inside, although sometimes noisy). Plenty of choices of local deserts and cakes, which go well with coffee. Prices are very reasonable as per such nice environment.

With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living

harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
