Unassuming place, broad menu, earthy fare, veggie friendly, good location and prices. Lovely staff, near the Indigenous Museum (a gem) and Anaconda market (more original than most).

This cafe is on the Iquitos promenade. It offers WiFi for customers, and has a good selection of fresh juices and smoothies, plus decent food. And the wait staff can get by in English. A popular spot with travelers and expat locals.

I have decided to go there as they have a vegetarian menu. I was happy with the food, fresh and simple, but the service was very slow even though the restaurant was very quiet.
