Food here is fine, but it's the homage to Neruda and Mistral that make the place stand out. The lunch specials are above average and inexpensive. They even have an exhibit of the two poets eating--a little bizarre, but kind of charming. Certainly worth a...More

The cafe is small and intimate with an excellent menu including a number of gluten-free options. We had the menu of the day - three course meal for 5,200 pesos. Great value!

I went there one afternoon to rest a bit. There's a wonderful selection of teas and an extensive menu. I tried the strudel, very good. The only problem was the service. Though the waiter was very good, he seemed to be working alone the outside...More

We enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate sitting in this delightful cafe alongside the lifelike sculptures of Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral! We didn't try the food but it looked very good a our neighbours' table.
