You need to update this informastion. La Terraza doesn't exist anymore. The one in Av 20 de octubre and the one in Av 16 de Julio (El Prado), have been replaced by Café Urbano. The one in Av Montenegro (San Miguel Area) has been replaced by Juan Valdés.

The cafe looks nice on the outside but turned out to be an overall unpleasent experience. The cafe feels the need to advertise oxygen, a given element in most other restaurants. There is no more oxygen here than elsewhere in La Paz. We ordered pancakes and the American breakfast. The cafe, with an extensive breakfast menu had ran out of eggs, and they could not be replaces by extra bacon or anything else. Nontheless, the price of the breakfast stayed at 40 bolivianos, with which i could buy 3 decent breakfasts elsewhere. Coffee was twice as bad as usual, the green tea was bitter, and we only got 2 rashers of bacon. On the plus side, pancakes were decent, speed of service was ok, and the wifi worked long enough to write this review.

We gave the " la terraza Café" a second chance after our first experience there. The first time we went, we were sitting for over 20 minutes and the waiters ignored us, so that we left without ordering anything. Today we thought of going back, because they offer an oxygen service regarding to the altitude. First thing, the oxygen service is not existing anymore, but they still promote it, second point wifi didn't work and then we ordered a Coke and the waiter told us they are running out of it, only sprite and fanta is available. We took sprite. 5 minutes later we saw him serving a coke zero to another table... We asked him what's going on. Suddenly he played the dump duck who does not understand - and we speak fluently Spanish! Another 5 minutes later the same waiter served a real coke to the next table!! Unbelievable! We asked again what's going on - again the dump duck, not even an excuse! These guys just hate tourists! Don't go there! If possible we would give this place ZERO points! Save your money!

We went to this area when trying to find a good Italian restaurant, but it was closed because it was a Sunday. So we found this cafe instead. We had sandwiches, empanadas and fruit smoothies. All were totally fine. Nothing special, but definitely not bad in any way.

The wifi was really fast and reliable though. We could even upload pictures for our blog.

Ambled upon this cafe as it's just down the road from our hotel. Excellent pecan pie, decent coffee and had a cheese and ham panini on another occassion...huge aint the word. Decent service and free WiFi. Not expensive either. Highly recommend it if you're after a light lunch...In a nice neighbourhood too so the terrace is perfect for people watching!
