This café has a wonderful vintage feel and offers some nice light meals as well. The location in Ciudad Vieja made it relatively easy to find though that part of the city was not exactly hopping late on a Saturday afternoon when we were there. In fact, it was the only thing nearby that was open.
We walked here from our hotel near Plaza Independencia in about ten minutes. Housed in a building built in 1877, we found the exterior to be quite inviting and the interior was extremely impressive in its vintage appeal. We were fortunate to get a seat by the window.
On this occasion, it was just three of us. Our server waited on us straightaway and provided good service during our visit. The menu provided a pretty decent variety of light fare including sandwiches, salads and various small meals. I ordered the ceviche while my family members ordered a ham and cheese croissant and a vegetable ciabatta. Everything was very good. I was happy with my ceviche though it was quite loaded with vinegar. The seafood was very fresh, however.
The prices were decent. We all had coffees and the bill came to $745 URS (about $33 USD or about $11 per person). That made it a pretty good bargain.
Overall, this is a very good spot in Ciudad Vieja to grab a coffee and a light meal in a vintage ambiance.
