Fodor's Review

Kick off your day with breakfast here. Mornings are the perfect time to snag one of the precious tables in the back garden, an unexpected refuge from noise and traffic. Platters come with eggs on the side: the americano has pancakes and toast; the tico comes with bread, fried bananas, and natilla (sour cream); and the huge criollita has ham or pork chops. Government workers from nearby offices start arriving late in the morning, and the lunchtime

decibel level increases appreciably. (This is the one time of day we recommend avoiding the place.) Everyone filters out about 2 pm, and once again, you have a quiet place for coffee and dessert. If you come here for dinner, make it an early one; the place closes at 7.
