By far my favourite cafe in Sucre, Abis is reasonably priced for both menu del dia and menu items. We are there for lunch and dinner a few times and quality was always consistent. Their wifi isn't the fastest but it was good enough and the staff didn't mind when we stayed longer to do our Spanish homework. They make... More

We wanted to go to Abis patio but this turned out to be closed, therefore we decided to go to Abis café. The food is ok, however it does not really have a 'restaurant' feeling, which I think Abis patio does have. But for a simple bite (think burgers and some Mexican food) it's fine! Bathroom was unusable because there... More

Indeed, Abis Patio is closed because we are building in the back. We didn't want to keep it open due to the noise and dust generated with the construction. Therefore we have transferred all Abis Patio food to Abis Cafe at the main plaza. We did have to slightly change the menu because of the size of the kitchen. We... More

First time we stopped we got good service and some excellent icecream and coffee. Second time we tried to do the same we apparently walked in 5 min before the official opening time (door was wide open). That really pissed off the woman that was inside and she basically threw us out. So rude we never went back..

I visited this place twice while in Sucre. The menu del display for 40 Bolovianos is fantastic. You get a starter (3 choices), a main (10 choices) and a tea / coffee / ice cream (12 flavours). The food was exceptional for the price. The Belgium owner is also an extremely nice and accommodating guy.

We went there and it was amazing. The food is great, the ice creams and deserts are excellent. The boss is Belgian and is a great person who has a nice word for each client.

Ate there 5 times in 9 days. Yves (from Belgium) and his Fabi from Bolivia have created an excellent gem in the center city square area. Appetizers to full meals the food is good and the Bolivian wine inexpensive. Home made deserts and gelato ice cream. Great conversation with Yves - high tech background transplanted to Sucre!

Run by a Bolivian woman and her Belgian husband this is part coffee shop, part ice cream store and part restaurant. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and the café is located on the main plaza of Sucre. I would highly recommend it for a snack or meal.
