The place is easy to find and is very cozy inside. There is also a terrace that you can use if the weather allows it. The cappuccino is good and the alfajores cookies are the best (must try the white chocolate with nuts). The service...More

We went to Havana in Calle Sarandi for coffee/tea with a friend. Nicely set and conveniently located in Ciudad Vieja. We wanted to eat "torta de alfajor" but there was none left. We settle for a "milhoja" type of cake (torta rogel) which was huge,...More

A trendy alternative to Starbucks, Bonafide and Café Martinéz. Pricy but sylish, a cafe to visit when craving for good coffee, served in tiny glasses with a havannet or alfajor. Already planning my next visit to sample the yummy danish and candy bar.

Tasty little treats full of goodness and a fresh cup of Joe. If you are looking to relax, enjoy a scrumptious cake or danish and sip a coffee/frap/cap, etc., this is the place to go. Middle of Old Town with free WIFI.

The staff can be rude but it's all worth with a piece of alfajor, dulce de leche or Havanets. The prices are a bit higher for a cup of coffee and a candy bar but is a great and unique experience. A must do!

We liked the selection and enjoyed the sandwiches plus the look of the place. Prices were reasonable, for Montevideo.

It’s a new edition to Sarandis café scene, and it’s nice to see the Old City finally getting dragged into the 21st century with some trendy cafes and young waiters/waitresses. It is in a good position close to Plaza Matriz, the coffee is good and...More

Nice café on a busy street-Ellauri- drowned out by constant stream of busses. The coffee is good, the pastries are large enough to share.

They put dulce de leche in coffee, of course it's awesome. But it's still just a nice coffee shop, with some alfajores, and not too much more.
