“A very local place for good coffee and sandwiches before visiting the Centro Historico”

Cafe Bodega Santa Isabel
Ranked #1,187 of 3,206 Restaurants in Lima
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 14, 2015

I read about Cafe Bodega Santa Isabel (the correct name) on the Daily Secret website. It's a simple and genuine local cafe frequented by nearby office workers and perhaps those people who still live in the Centro Historico. We stopped here for coffee, chocolate and sandwiches before sightseeing in the area.

The street-level entrance and storefront are very small but don't worry. After you order your food, you go upstairs to the 2nd floor and find yourself a table. The friendly waitress brings your food up. Or, if you know exactly what you want, she can always take your order. Specialties of the house include Chanchamayo coffee, Huaraz butter, Chiquián and Moquegua cheese and Cajamarca smoked ham. If you don't want to speak Spanish, just point at what looks good or have a look at the menu board.

I tried to take a picture of the sandwich but by the time I got my camera out, my son had devoured it. Maybe next trip...

This small bodega / cafe is situated in the heart of the historic center of Lima. Nothing fancy, but great products. The owner is a friendly man and a proud ambassador of all the great products Peru has to offer. In this place you can have a great cup of coffee from the famous Chanchamayo area. You don't get here the fancy espresso or cappuccino, this is "just" a cup of coffee, but with a great 'sabor'. The breads they serve are fresh and you can choose from a wide range of meat. Also the cheeses he sells are delicious.

On your way out you buy some of the fresh grinded coffee with some nice chocolates or the KingKong cookies.
