If you pay $10 for a fast food combo, you better go to Azafrán and get real food for about the same price. Try the daily special, which comes with a drink and you'll be fully satisfied.

They make the best alfajores ever, as well as lemon pie. Their iced tea is really good because it is homemade, and they have a lot of food options (breakfast, lunch, dinner, as well as appetizers, and sweets). Also a good variety in beverages (hot...More

Although this coffee shop's quality has gone down, the Queque Azafran is still a very good choice. Advantage is that there is free parking.

We stopped in here for a break from all the walking. Had a really good cappuccino and carrot cake. Also tried the lemonade with mint. That was very refreshing on a hot day. Nice place, clean and friendly service. Free wifi.
