“Our favorite coffee spot in Matagalpa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

We tried Barista Cafe Nica after a recommendation from hostel host. Returned 3 more times for coffee and breakfast. I enjoyed their medium roast both with and without leche! Be sure to check out the upstairs room for leisurely coffee and conversation.

“Mediocre coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

First off let me say, I am from Seattle. I know good coffee because I grew up on it. I've had great coffee in Nicaragua but mostly just mediocre. I had the caramelo latte ad the espresso tasted old and the flavor was cloying, too sweet. This coffee was drinkable but not delicious. A friend had a hazelnut iced latte, also too sweet. And the chai latte was just tazo, nothing special.

Nice place to eat and hang out with my nephews. The service was good and friendly. The location was close to the town square so convenient for me to walk to.

“The best Cafè in Matagalpa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

I enjoy coming here as much for the food as for their gourmet coffee. And the staff and owners are super helpful and friendly. Plus, what a great place to people watch from the street-side tables. Love it, this place!!!
