The cafe, the hostel and the tree huggers tourist information are run by a social organisation that is supporting children projects in the surroundings of Esteli and is offering fair wages to the Nicaraguans who work there. It's all set next to each other. You...More

Not a local hang out, but there's alcoholic drinks as well as coffee, breakfast food, fajitas, burritos, fries. A tad overpriced. There's a selection of chocolate bars and maps in the front. I like how a portion of the profits goes toward different community projects,...More

Really enjoyed listening to guitar music and singing by, firstly two Nicaraguans, and secondly, a Scottish guy who lives in Nicaragua. Lovely atmosphere. We ate the aubergine bake and the lentil dish. Both delicious and very reasonably priced.

Please don't go here the food is overpriced, it's awful, we had hummus??? It was flavourless mush, nachos that in reality was a small bowl of crisps and a beer, we complained but were greeted with a shrug of the shoulders, we carried on complaining...More

We’re so sorry to hear that you have expressed so literally, your alleged, poor “awful” food experience at Cafe Luz. Our vegetarian nachos dish is the most popular we have on the menu, alongside the original cajun fries, and it’s built of fresh corn chips,...More

The food was okay here but nothing more. The salad I had was prepared poorly enough and overdressed. The veggie option my wife had was more successful. All in all a mixed bag.

Cafe Luz Y Luna is a hopping place where locals and international travelers mingle for coffee in the afternoons and beer in the evening. I have not eaten there, but the coffee and beer is excellent. They even offer a local microbrew. The service is...More

The food is good and the place nice to have a drink. You will meet other tourists as it is just in front of a travel agency

I gave this café two opportunities. The first time it took 30 minutes for a 4oz hamburger. I bit into it and it was the consistency of a charcoal briquette and Pop Rocks. It immediately fell out my mouth and made a sound hitting my...More

A cultural melting pot for travellers and Nicas alike in central Esteli! Organic coffee, free wifi, chill tunes, cervezas and ron, and a varied menu which uses locally grown organic produce from our Kitchen Garden Project in Miraflor and El Limon. Profits are reinvested into the projects over at Luz Verde.
