I treated my staff to lunch after a wellness event at St Rita's. We had a variety of sandwiches, salads, smoothies and cupcakes. The food was very good and the service was timely.

I used to work at a coffee shop. So, I know what I like. I am very pleased with their drip coffee. I haven't had other drinks yet. Tomato Bisque soup is worth the trip alone, I want the recipe.

Very cozy coffee shop/eatery in Downtown Lima. If you want a latte, this is the place. The breakfast sandwiches are good and for lunch there is a good variety of choices.

I usually go here with my mom, who loves the place. They have a very eclectic atmosphere, excellent service and some very very good home made soups. I'm particularly fond of their tomato soup, coupled with their grilled cheese sandwich and you've got a winner. Excellent spot to share a cup of tea and enjoy good conversation or the company...

I had the cranberry walnut grilled cheese and it was a treat! I also had a very healthy green smoothie. What wonderful food for a coffee shop! They also have a nice selection of merchandise for sale, purses and wallets for a charity as well as funky jewelry and miscellaneous items.

Good food, especially Oriental Salad, Tomato Bisque and Cheddar Apple Smoked Turkey Sandwich. Love the Frozen Cappuccinos and Smoothies. Shop for coffee and tea inside as well. Sometimes live entertainment.

The Meeting place has a large sandwich and wrap menu. Also soups, salads and smoothies. The atmosphere is comfy even though the dining area is large. Everything I've tried there was very good.

We were looking for a local coffee house while in Lima and this place was recommended. We arrived and were promptly greeted by the staff behind the counter; we ordered breakfast and coffee(s). The result was high quality coffee and an even better breakfast. A comfortable stop worth finding . . . .

Lima is often criticized for it's "lack of things to do." For these critics, I argue, The Meeting Place is a breath of fresh air. Offering big city culture with small town charm their high quality menu and calm friendly service keep my girlfriend and me coming back each week. I would highly recommend The Meeting Place to anyone who... More
