“inconsistent”
Review of Picoteo Cafe

Picoteo Cafe
Ranked #7 of 7 Coffee & Tea in Matagalpa
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The food is inconsistent at best.....my spouse and I have not eaten there in the last two years due to poorly prepared food. The service also is inconsistent. The upside is that it is a good place to have a couple of beverages and mingle with locals who are, for the most part very friendly. Caution here..keep accurate and separate tabs for each person.

Unfortunately, this place feels that they can run 30 odd tables with one waitress/server. It is more a bar than a cafe and that's their strong point, so if you are hungry better to go someplace else. I ordered a taco mix plate and was after waiting for over 30 minutes, was brought a cold, nasty plate which I refused and which the server refused to remove from the table and then when I finally attempted to leave, tried to charge me. Restaurants here are not used to having their service or food questioned.

I stopped in for a couple of beers and a bite to eat. It was refreshing to be the only gringa in site. The service was good and the beer was cold. For about 160 cordobas I had 2 beers, a quesadilla and a plate with tostones, frijoles, and queso Frito.

I visited the cafe with two friends after reading a review in the Lonely Planet guide. We were disappointed as the cafe was more like a low end bar with tables with huge amounts of beer bottles on them and lots of cigarette smoke. The coffee was weak although the flavour was good. I ordered milk but the waiter explained that he only had cream. The cream turned out to be Kraft creamer that owes more to the lab than the cow's udder! I dont know why they couldnt pop into the shop next door and spend a few pennies on a pint of milk.
