This is chain that gets just about everything right. First, the seating is organized and private, whether indoor or outdoor, for a comfortable conversation and a relaxing experience. Second, the menu is varied with something for everyone, but at the same time simple and well organized. Third, the deserts are wonderful and for me the standard in a late night craving for something sweet. However, the service is adequate, but not as great as it could be. The ratio of servers to customer is not great and the result is a lot of waiting and sometimes confusion and forgetfulness on the part of the waiters. But all in all a great place well established on my "regular" list.

I really like San Antonio, and its convenient locations in many districts in Lima. What they are great at is food, but the service is totally lacking. I dont know if its because they dont have enough waiters, but everytime I go there, it takes about 10 minutes for someone to take our order. By then, Im less hungry and more upset.
Once you order, the orders come out quite fast.
Nice place to go with girlfriends for coffee, nice place for couples, not a great place to go with children.

This place was too well recommended for the real quality it presented. One of us had a very good sandwich and the other, a lame one. It's not really for vegetarians, as only 2 or 3 out of almost 30 sandwiches are meatless. The desserts are just fine, as the coffee. The service was very good though, very fast for a crowded place, a rarity in Lima.

This is my fave place in Lima for a quick bite. It's popularity seems to reflect its consistent high praise. Be sure and get something from the bakery--you won't be sorry!

Ordered take out on my last day in Lima, and this had to be one of our best meals during the whole trip. We both ordered the caprese sandwiches, chicken empanadas, and some fresh juice smoothies. Everything was delicious. I wish they had one of these restaurants back home. I would be there all the time.
