A hearty breakfast , a delicious lunch, a late night snack? Welcome to Alexanders, also just a coffee, milkshake or homemade cake is highly recommendable, open from 07.00 Am until midnight, always a good choice when in bolivia, and you miss your deli back at home ,

The frappes are good, but then again they are to be find anywhere in Santa Cruz. The food is nothing particular to talk about, but there are some alternatives to cakes (which is hard to find good ones). But it usually has good wifi, which is a big plus.
The one at the plaza is mostly crowded by gringos, while the one near the Cristus (2nd ring). Has more a "business" feeling: People eating lunch in their suits between meetings.

Monseñor location:
During the Sunday brunch hour i sat for over forty minutes without receiving any recognition or acknowledgement of my existence. Caused by the neglect of the staff after 15 minutes of waiting i was compelled to retrieve my own menu. After deciding on a meal, getting the attention of the wait staff was equally impossible even when the tables around me were empty and in need of clearing. Efforts to flag down or make eye contact with the wait staff were met with dismissive glances or were completely ignored.
It quickly became obvious that the restaurant lacked any semblance of a service system or respect for the clientele.
Due to the hostile atmosphere and nonexistent service I was forced to leave after almost an hour of waiting without any form of recognition from the staff. I had high hopes for this restaurant and all my Bolivian friends recommended it, however I strongly advise against going to this establishment when there are superior restaurants on the same block.

Halfway between a cafe and a restaurant, this place is frequented by a mix of locals and expats. It is a good option for a quick eat or for coffee&cakes, a bit less so for a full dinner. It has a nice atmosphere and the food is good, especially when you´re in search of a lighter option. All in all, not a bad place, although not remarkable either.

I was here a month ago on a cold day, seated inside with a couple of friends. Place was 1/3 full. Food and coffee were good , but the place is very insecure. My friend got her purse stolen from her seat, we asked the person in charge to view their webcam and ofcourse we were treated bolivian style...... They could not help us :S

Come on for a business this large train your staff to handle this issues a little better plus put camaras for your own safety.
After that insident why should i go back having many coffee places to choose from. Customer service makes the difference!
