At the base of Cerro Santa Lucía, partially in a former convenience store (not that you'd notice), Catedrál is one of three establishments with the same owners. They are all connected but have three different entrances. Occasional live music and a heated-in-winter upstairs terrace make the Catedrál's bar popular among the 30 and up crowd (but there is no happy hour). Ópera is an upmarket restaurant serving food from some far-flung places, such as fish wrapped in phyllo,
veal, pork, and other oven-cooked meats with slightly fussy presentation. Around the corner, on the street Mercéd is the café with Belgian sandwiches, large portions of cake, soup, and most importantly, what is probably the creamiest ice cream in all of Santiago.
