Nice coffee and sandwiches. You must wait more than 15 minutes to get a table in he peak hour, around 6 PM.

This cafe has a top location in front of the ocean. The walk there is already nice because it is in a very green area and than to sit right in front of the ocean next to the cliffs is pretty nice! To be honest worth it for the atmosphere and not to much for the food.

Nice places to stop for a cafe, and check out the view! The churros are great and the menu looked pretty good. We have walked that area quite a bit since we got here, and plan on try their lunch menu soon. So stay tuned 🙂

Very nice for relaxing time. Take a seat, ask for something simple (desserts, coffees, sandwich, ...) and enjoy the views and the moment.

Fantastic view. The breakfast is ok but could be expanded with fresh fruits and yoghurts cereals the healthy style, since many people jog and make sport around !

We stopped here for a drink (juice-- they do not serve alcohol here, at least not around lunchtime) and stayed for over an hour, just taking in the staggering view of the Pacific extending out in all directions. This is a beautiful place to take a rest if you are walking around Miraflores, and appeared to be one of, if... More

I have been here a dozen times over the years, and naturally the view of the Pacific is the draw. The sandwiches and desserts are average, as is the decor characterized by worn, rickety tables, but the open-air venue, decent service and the view make it a place to return to. My son and I frequently stop in for an... More

This that eatery one always hopes is there but never really finds it. The menu variety is ample, savory good tastes, and wide variety of coffees & drinks. Perched on malcon cliffs, the name buena vista is an understatement! If you're in Lima ya gotta go here!

Thank John C
