Good food, good service, awesome with AC! AMAZING caramel cappucinos with the cutest foam designs. I've never seen anything like it in person before. Mine was a kitten.

Drink cups filled with their beautiful latte art. Big plates of delicious food - their Omlets were enormous. Beautiful interior and elegant setting made me feel like a princess while dining. Closes early.

3 of us popped in here for a light lunch and were very pleased we did. The main room (through glass doors on your right) is air-conditioned which was a relief from the hot streets outside and the paninis we ordered very tasty. Service is a bit slow perhaps but there were a lot of locals there when we visited... More

As digital nomads, we are looking for good places to work in León. Someone tipped Libelula because of the airco and the wifi. The airco is excellent and that is pretty rare in León. The wifi is crap, both times we went to Libelula the internet was either super slow or not working, while the staff told us at entering... More

La Libelula is a great place to have a coffee or meal in a beautifully remodeled air conditioned coffeehouse/restaurant. Enjoy.

My friends and I all got blended drinks. I got Cacao and others got Jamaica. I am now hooked on cacao and buy it whenever able to. The Libelula Panini was very good. I left the cafe only paying $6, which in Nica standards is high for lunch but I was very happy with the price and quality. Don't ever... More

If you need to escape the heat of the city, this is a great place to do it. The menu is a bit more expensive than other places around the city, but considering the air conditioning if feels like a fair price. If you get too cold, the garden in the back is also very pleasant. They make nice espresso... More

I was at Libélula yesterday with a friend and I had to come back today for an other enjoyable brunch/lunch -moment. I am actually here at Libélula as I am writing the review sitting in their air-conditioned part of the café. There is also a possibility to sit outside or semi-outside with fans. Their filled crepes are amazing! I have... More

We ate lunch here once, and went back for coffee a couple of times. The food is average, but the coffee is great. The frozen Mocha was a perfect sweet treat in steamy Leon, and the Butterfly in steamed milk on the cappuccino was a work of art. While the food is unremarkable, the AC in VERY HOT Leon, is... More
