“A touch of Europe - a yummy find!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Whatever language you speak - Alberto and Marion will have no problem communicating with you. We were at Ed. Isla Goritti (the building that holds "Lady Marion") on business when the sign in front drew us in - coffee, scones and English spoken! The proprietors are engaging, charming and fantastic cooks. The onion soup was delicious; smooth, cheezy and spiced gently and perfectly. Eggs were fluffy and cooked EXACTLY to order accompanied by a soft warm croissant. My partner had Irish coffee (a specialty) and i had the best cappuccino i've had in Uruguay. An amazing variety of designer olive oils made locally (and FANTASTIC) - "Finca Babieca" was on display and available. i ended up soaking the final drops up with my croissant and sprinkling it on my eggs - Rosemary flavored olive oil. Yum.
Marion and Alberto also keep a library of English language books for loan / gift - we each left with a mystery in hand. We felt, not only satisfied & sated when we left, but like we'd made new friends and just had a home cooked, wonderful, meal. All for under $30. A remarkable find in Punta del Este - where one can easily drop more than $150 for a mediocre meal.
The location, directly opposite Playa Mansa is also lovely. After we ate we walked on the beach, watching birds. Ahhhhhhhhh....
We will be back as often as possible!! We are eager to try the fruit tarts, scones and quiches!

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

We had read reviews about Lady Marion and were not disappointed. As friendly as can be, speak english and make amazing scones and macaroons. You also have to try their apple blueberry crumb cake, delicious. Truly a delight and a must if your in Punta Del Este.

“The Best”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

If you happen to be in Punta del Este you must go to lady Marion, a quaint pretty boutique café and restaurant. The food is great and homemade; everything is baked or made fresh each day. The meringue macaroons are to die for and the most marvelous Scones-with-English-Tea. The proprietors both speak English. Ask for the Argentine grouch. It will be my way of saying hi had a great time.

“The best place for REAL English Scons!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

I travel sort of frequently to Punta del Este, at least once a year for family vacations. A few years ago I stumbled upon this pretty boutique café by chance, with a book in hand, and had the most marvelous Scons-with-English-Tea afternoon of reading I've ever had.

Been coming here ever since, literally every afternoon that I'm in town, for the quality of the products, the nice ambience, closeness to the beach, and the fun owners who will sit down and chat with you - if they like you ;) -.

“Cozy restaurant and great home made food!!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

This is a MUST if you go to Punta del Este you have to stop at the Parada 10 and visit this cozy, friendly place. The food is great and home made and the service is EXCELLENT. You can go for breakfast, lunch or a cup of delicious tea in the early evening and be sure to try the baking products they are great.
