Doubtlessly one of the best spots of proper good quality coffee. Several options of pastry, bagels and sandwiches. Amazing cold brew. They do pairings and tasting sessions. Absolute must go for coffee lovers.

If you are in Santiago this place is worth finding. An interesting ten to fifteen minute walk from the historic centre of town. The coffee is made with care and attention. Good temperature and consistency in milk. Well extracted espresso and the barista speaks English...More

Well, the wifi can be left as 'decent' ? Sometimes our provider flops hard on us. In summer we offer more cold options; our nice cold brew coffee, or our Nitro cold brew are always good options. Thanks for this nice review!

Delicious mocha and bagel breakfast. We were staying in the area and wanted to get a nice cup of coffee before starting our day. Highly recommend. The service was outstanding and the bagel and cream cheese/jam hit the spot. My partner got the breakfast special...More

They have their own nitro cold brew coffee (which is top notch) and great sandwiches at very good prices. Lovely atmosphere, pleasant indie music, and very friendly staff.

I'm so glad I was recommended this place. The people were so friendly - we had a great conversation with them about Santiago, immigration and brownies (which are the best in South America in my opinion). The coffee is also delicious. Prices are very reasonable....More

We were looking for a place near the museums, and this coffee shop was perfect. Really nice service-they were very kind when I misspoke every Spanish word I tried. Reminds me of a cool coffee shop you'd find in Austin or Nashville.

Most definitely recommended. It has great coffee (specialty coffee) including cold brew and cold brew NITRO! It has great selection of bagels and pastry. Great place to have breakfast, or any other meal!

A trendy little coffee shop which serves great coffee, but also has tasty pastries and bagels. For British travelers, this place could easily be in Shoreditch London, although luckily it wasn't full of hipsters!
