This barista has been closed for sometime now. There is another coffee shop called Barista just north of the cathedral, but it has no relation to this one.

Cheese cake, brownies, espresso... This place is your choice when you really need a double latte and Starbucks is far away. Nicaraguan coffee is excellent but the locals are madly in love with watery instant coffee with a lot of sugar. It's nice with a...More

The food is fine, a nice break from gallo pinto but nothing to write home about. The smoothies come with far too much sugar, even when you ask for it with less, but the coffee is nice.

We went there for breakfast. Portions were quite generous and coffee was really good. The service was also good. I would recommend them to exploit their good coffee beans using other methods to prepare coffee like aeropress or chemex.

Nice place, almost like a Starbucks. The only thing that made it less than five star was - my wife speaks little spanish, and having an english speaker for the tourists might be helpful. If that isn't a problem for you, FIVE stars!

I can recommend this place, as my frozen mochocolate was vety good. Unfortunately i did not try anything else. Also local people visite this coffee shop, as it is cetral. There is no A/C but fan and the service is fast. Enjoy it!

Breakfast is super cheap, I was surprised to see my bill.. Though it was a mistake. I'm a hot chocolate lover for breakfast, but wasn't too fund of it here, too sweet... Despite that, great spot for breakfast!

A great location across from the Cathedral. This place is very busy and I ordered a double Cappuccino and crepes. It took quite a while for my coffee to come, and I had finished it long before my crepes came.

Behind the cathedral. Nice place for a coffee (any kind) and cheesecake. Clean, with a small street cafe if you find a table. Free wifi.
