This old place is really charming and decorated with religious icons. It offers simple traditional dishes well prepared and copious. The ice creams are excellent. Better go early because the place fills up rapidly with locals.

There's a lot of history in this quaint cafe and nothing about it disappointed. We stopped in for coffee and a pastry and both were spectacular. It's a great place to stop in if you want a break from wandering around Old Town.

This place has been around since 1858 apparently, but is still going strong. Very simple, unpretentious decor, but a great variety of local staple dishes (ceviches, locro, churrasco etc.) and pastries (humitas, empanadas, quesadillas etc), all at very reasonable prices. Service is quick and courteous....More

I absolutely love this place. Friendly ambiance, good meals, lively colonial art pieces on display and great for a tight budget. What is not to love from this place? My favorites: the breaded sirloin, and the milk artisanal ice cream of "paila".
