Well, under the heat of Leon's sun, Libelula's salon with AC would be a heaven if only I didn't miss it. It is just on the right hand side when you enter. Also they have a garden. I went there for breakfast, had a Nica breakfast and Nica cafe with milk. I paid 115 cordobas (75 breakfast - 40 cafe)... More

Everything about Libelula is lovely and inviting! Great service, great coffee, great food! An absolute haven in Leon! Wifi has always been great, and now they have a lovely a/c part. Enjoy!

Lovely cafe but wi-fi never worked. Had air-con room, a delight in Leon,but there are occasions when it isn't switched on. Nice waiters and the omelette was great.

All i have to say is wow to the Porky Panini and the Dragon Fruit Cheesecake. This place came highly recommend by a friend and even though i do not drink coffee it is an amazing place to enjoy with friends or family for god food, good coffee and very good soft drinks

I went every day to Libelula during my stay in Leon just because I loved their coffee. I liked to sit in the beautiful lounge at the back. I did not have food although they serve breakfasts and meals (but nothing vegan).

I used to go there in the daytime to write. The iced coffee is excellent. Wi-fi often not working, but plenty of power outlets. A lot of snack options, a few vegetarian ones too. Gets crazy full sometimes, and other times you're there alone. I didn't see the logic behind it. Waiters can be a bit hard to get in... More

If you like fancy coffee, don't miss this place! Also, has a nice interior for sipping your fancy latte that costs you C$45. I'm usually a black coffee drinker, but enjoyed branching out here.

Amazing service and free wifi. The staff remembers the 'regulars' and their preferences. Always a pleasure to stop in.

This is a coffee house but it also serves good fruit juices. The setting is relaxing and it is a good spot to escape the heat of Leon.

Coffee is great, food is great, the place could be nicer but you're in Nicaragua so the standards are low anyways. I did however miss an air-con and a faster internet, that would have made me come back a lot more.

Thank KnutMarius
