This was the first place I went to when I arrived in San Cristóbal. The Café has cute interior design with a little bakery inside. The breakfast we had there was delicious plus good coffee! Staff was very polite. Definitely worth a visit!

A comfortable restaurant across from the inboard fabrics market. The papas frites are excellent and the lasagna is great.
