“Starbucks over again?”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Alexander Coffe just seems like a Bolivian version of Starbucks. I got a Caffe Latte together with a brownie cake. It was 27 bolivianos in total. The Latte was extremely sweet, so if you like syrup, this is for you. The brownie was quite good, but ended up with egg shells in the cake? Service didnt really exsist. But if you like Starbucks alike places, this is for you.

“Great coffee, stale desserts”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

The coffee is wonderful, and a good place to buy Bolivian coffee beans to take home as gifts. The desserts looked great, but were dry and tasteless - a disappointment.

“Just a name, as far as I've been told”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

No quality what so ever! I ordered some dessert...I think it was like three months old...croissants? they have to be a bit crunchy and fresh, am I right?

“A great place to see people”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

As far as coffee houses go around the world, Alexander is just average. However, most of La Paz "Zona Sur" fashionable young and their elders go there to meet and chat, which makes it an attractive haunt regardless, unless you really dislike second-hand smoke, which usually invades the non-smoking section.

“Wonderful for a relaxing lunch, coffee, and pastry”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

My husband and I were in La Paz for a week this past February, and we went to Alexander Coffee no less than three times. Twice for their delicious lunch - we always split the Chef's Salad - and once for a coffee after having lunch elsewhere. Each time the service was excellent, the food was terrific, and the atmosphere was relaxing. I in particular have a very delicate stomach, and I never had any trouble with their food.

I especially recommend their juices and pastries - the chocolate chip muffin and carrot cake were unbelievable. My husband also raves about their coffee - he brought home six huge bags in our suitcases!

A must for those looking to relax and rejuvenate after wandering around La Paz's steep streets at 13,000 feet!
