Just went here for a coffee in the afternoon. Really nice cappuccinos and a super nice outdoor courtyard to enjoy them in. Attached to an interesting bookshop (mainly Spanish but some English)

Cafe Brujula offers a stunning view in its central location beside the cathedral Santo Domingo. It is very accessible and the coffee is beautifully decorated.
