Next to the Ruben Dario hone on the Calle Principal. Excellent coffee shop and service. Good place for meetings or get togethers or simply hanging out. Bit more formal than the shorts and t-shirt brigade so classic and as elegant as you are likely to get in Leon

Six of us came here for lunch on a Monday hoping it would be fairly speedy. We all orderd and waited for AN HOUR for our food. I had a chicken and veggie crepe that was ok. Others had the marguerita panini which was fairly small, the pollo a la plancha which was generous portion and delicious, and others ordered... More

We stumbled upon this coffee shop walking through town and stopped in for some coffee. The coffee was good and the pastries were amazing. A lovely cool courtyard with comfortable chairs gives you a moment to relax and cool off. The service was a bit slow, but you are there to relax. The staff speak minimal English so at times... More

Leon is hot and Libelula is the prefect place to spend your afternoon siesta to escape the sun. Their sandwiches and panini are delicious and made with quality ingredients. As well, their coffee is very good and so are there frozen coffee drinks. The cafe atmosphere is beautiful and the bathrooms were the nicest I've seen in all of Nicaragua!... More

Small coffee shop located at 200 meters from the park, aside the Ruben Dario Museum. Ideal for an afternoon coffee with a dessert or a meal as a crepe or sandwich. Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner, if you´re in for a light and quick meal. Good service and good prices.

I love the atmosphere, they have a section with air-condition and is probably the most modernly designed café I have visited in León. The location is great and the street has a lot of little craft- and book stores. However I personally think they could offer a more varied range of foods, but all in all it lives up to... More

I loved this coffee shop vibes and they serve very good coffee. It was very relaxing and perfect to take few hours out from exploring the city and just having a chat with friends or making arrangements for next travels. They have nice interior design and superclean toilets. They also serve food which i didnt have but i saw their... More

We were in Corinto on a cruise ship and booked a tour into Leon. Our guide took us here for lunch and we were all happy with his choice. We had pre-ordered fajita"s and were seated in the air conditioned room. This was a welcome change from the heat. The food and beer came in a timely fashion and was... More

For some reason, the day and time we stopped in, it took over 30 minutes for a single cup of coffee to appear! The coffee was good, but 30+ minutes?!?! Along with free wifi, the setting is nice and there's an air-conditioned room which is great to escape the heat of Leon. I'd try going there again to see if... More
