I have eaten here four times in the last week and have kept returning because of the excellent coffee, friendly staff, efficient service and fantastic meals. The menu is not extensive especially for a vegetarian but tonight I chose the Sorrentino plata which proved to be a ravioli that was divine. Previouly had the vegetarian burger which was also delicious.... More

Hands down best place for any time of day regardless of what you're looking for. Best coffee in town, great wine selection, great fare, and be sure to ask Richy for one of his Pisco Sours! Great vibes anytime of day both local and travelers.

I was beginning to despair that I could find a great coffee cafe in Chile. But Caffe El Barista provided excellent coffee in a vibrant setting. They also provided such an excellent jam I inquired of their source, and now in my luggage is a big jar of jam - from next door to the Caffe.

The coffee is one of the best in town and they have lots of good food! Their salad is amazing and fullfilling! Service is great most of the time.

If you actually like coffee I bet you are suffering in Chile. I feel your pain. But this cafe will infuse your disappointment with the right amount of espresso perfection! Thank god for the trained baristas who don't just pass you dishwater and milk for coffee as you would have undoubtedly found in every so-called 'cafe' in Chile.

the guys here are great - they genuinely seem to enjoy their workplace, which is not entirely common in these areas. While there's plenty of tourist shops etc, not everyone is endeared to serve you - this cafe welcomes you and AND, most importantly, they do GREAT coffee. They also have a select range of boutique teas and pure tabaco... More
