This place is open 24 hours so it was great to come here around 4 am after the club. Had a couple arepas which were pretty decent considering the time. Not a fancy place but the decor is just of a typical venezuelan arepera. The toddy drink is delicious.

Want to have typical tastes of Venezuelan food. This is the place. Not fancy, not chic, no luxury, just a taste of the wonderful colors and savors of a wonderful country and culture! Anything you have will be served as is. Service is poor because it is not fancy, however, it is quick and to the point. Delicious. Areperias are... More

I tent to eat here everytime i visit Caracas, we usually stay across the street so is very convenient, first time in 2005, then 2010, 2011 a few times, service is good, food comes quick, super tasty and unexpensive! We've tried the Cachapas, arepas, pabellon and even simple things like a grilled chicken turns tasty, try the natural juice please!... More

The vast selection of arepas and cachapas are a great local option for breakfast and lunch. The servers were friendly and service was very quick. Highly recommend if you're in the neighborhood looking for a quick snack.

This is still one of the little great susprises around Caracas; unassuming and no-frills, but with an impressive array of typical Venezuelan dishes. A great place to take a foreigner in for a quick lesson in Venezuelan comfort food; a Saturday breakfast would be the best time to avoid congestion around the suburb (Las Mercedes). They also serve full lunch... More
