We visited Joy Ride multiple times during our 4 day stay in Sucre. The bar has a couple of rooms where you can hang out, drink and eat. Especially the patio is really nice! We really wanted to watch the documentary The Devil's Miner before heading to Potosi (which I would really would recommend to watch before visiting the mines).... More

With a Spanish/English menu joy ride cafe seems very geared up for travellers (their motto is 'not just for gringos' so obviously most people that go are backpackers) yet the staff couldn't understand my simple Spanish and didn't seem to speak a word of English. That would have been ok if the food wasn't so cold I had to send... More

Good handcrafted coffee. Visited in Happy Hour period and get two pieces of tiramisu for the price of one. Decent places to chat with friends.

They kept making our drinks wrong. Even when we changed to different cocktails! I asked for a vodka martini and got gin. The food was very sweet. Even when it shouldn't have been.

Good for a variety of options: eating when you are hungry, when you just want a snack, when you just want a beer. Great choice of food and drink to choose from. Lots of young people hanging out, eating, drinking, playing cards. Go upstairs to the terrace which is lovely. The second time we went there we weren't that hungry... More

Been there a couple of times when in Sucre. It's a Hotspot for tourists but that also means you can get good international food. We had burgers and they were really good for the price. Wifi works fine and the staff is nicr as well

Lots of foreigners here. Large place with multiple floors. Nice patio on 1st level up. Had some of the best pasta we've had on our travels through Paraguay and Uruguay.

The food I had here was delicious! I really enjoyed the vegetarian quinoa burger which also came with chips and a drink for 25 bolivianos. Very cheap for a pub burger around here! They have 2 for 1 desserts as well which is great! The other international meals can be around 40 bolivianos so a bit more pricey. It's about... More
