We went here a few times! It's a lovely place with a very chilled vibe. The ice coffee is INCREDIBLE. It's more expensive then most places around however, it is a non-protect business with the money helping the local community. So a great place in...More

Really loved this place! The food is not fine dining but it is very good and moderately priced as well as the drinks. I got to spend some time with the director (this is a non-profit) operation and her commitment to the people of Nicaragua...More

This nice little cafe and eatery is part of a community of services which includes the treehuggers tour agency and the Luna international hostel. Their boiled coffee is great and oily. Their espresso is rich and complex.

Thanks for your nice comments about our food and service! Sorry to hear that you were bothered by the smoking, and just to let you and others know that it’s only allowed to smoke in the the first room which is open to the street....More

Very strange that so many visitors from European countries (Holland, UK, Germany) do smoke in this café, something that has been forbidden in their own countries for many years. Your food is fine, your drinks (I had a glass of your housewine) just fine, your...More

Good food if you are looking for locally produced foods. Greens from Esteli and surroundings and locally made nacatamales. Try the potatoe wedges very nice. Even if you don't want a single meal you can mix and match....
