Set in a beautiful historic plaza. This place is really nice especially after crossing the desert from Trujillo. Very clean and fast attentive service. Really good stop for Coffee desert or lunch.

We stumbled on this ice cream parlour/café by chance and we were so glad we did! The ice cream is simply amazing, I had a pistachio + gianduja ice cream which was the best ever and was very reasonably priced. The place is very nicely...More

I always come, everything is so fresh and tasty in this place. Everytime I visit piura, chalan is my first stop, sometimes right after getting off the plane. They have desserts and light meals.

Just wanted to have a snack. The juice was really good but the peach cake was a bit dry. It would've been nice if they had wifi.

Bad...attention is mediocre. Food is greasy. Place is not clean. "Cremolada" smoothie type drinks are loaded with sugar. Would only recommend if in a hurry and need to grab a bite, otherwise choose something else.
