Nica owned but American style. Great place for a work meeting or your morning coffee. My favorite place in town for breakfast.

Cute spot with amazing acoustic covers blaring over the loud speaker. Coffee was excellent. Gallo Pinto also very good here.

I have been to Barrio Café for lunch: good quality, nice stuff, but unfortunately extremely high prices. Considering the local prices and wages, it is highly overpriced - I could get the same price at similar quality back home in Germany. Sorry to say so:...More

I had a grilled chicken plate with a salad and juices and it was delicious. The place is 100% owned and operated by Nicaraguans so nice to know your money is going to people living there not investors.

Did not really enjoy lunch here. The salad was soaked in dressing... the staff was friendly. The breakfast deal (eggs with potatoes and side) were fine.

Very comfortable restaurant, the staff was attentive, and the huevos rancheros were amazing. Friends had omelets, and they were good too
