“Great place to chill, nice atmosphere and great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

We were staying at the hostel next door so this was a very convenient place to stop in for dinner on our first night to La Paz and for coffee mid way through our walking tour. Good wifi connection, nice and cozy place with a good and varied menu. We only had one bad experience with a waitress who seemed to enjoy ignoring us and failed to tell us that they were out of chocolate ice cream which I ordered. Instead she just plunked down the strawberry ice cream and left before I could say anything. Despite that, I would recommend this place.

“Nice food and a peaceful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed both the dinner and lunch I had here with my partner. Both times it was very pleasant, out of the hustle and bustle of the street. The thai chicken was very nice. Service was quick once you ordered but it took a bit to order.

“Fun cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Went once for lunch and once for a light dinner. Both times the food was great. They offer a range of locally inspired and international dishes. First time service was perfect, second time a little slow (place was busy). I would definitely recommend lunch in the sunny room toward the back

“Very cute and good stop off in city”

I stopped by her on a day of walking around La Paz and had a great coffee and a delicious smoothie. Very conveniently located next to the Iglesia de San Francisco. Also has wi-fi!
