I went there for coffee only. The place is very clean and trendy. They have a lot of power outlets so you can use the place to get some work done. The décor and level of hygiene is above Nicaraguan standard. The coffee is up to par with other good coffee shop in Nicaragua but expect to pay a little... More

Good WiFi, good coffee, good food, good ambience. It has the ambience of a Starbucks, but they serve liquor and beer and have a food menu. It is a bit pricey by Nicaraguan standards, but you get what you pay for.

I had a dar Nicaragua coffee here and a mini pecan pie and botj were delicious! The staff were also really friendly so I went back for breakfast another day too and made the most of the outside seating.

Popped in here for drinks and mini cakes. Brilliant smoothies and good coffee (though 'Coffee shop Barista' round the corner by the cathedral did it better...) Lovely little lemon pie. Great service, air conditioning freezing, but we have been used to tropical heat for some time so may not be cold for others!

Good coffee shop atmosphere! Would love to try some of their coffee some time, was only in to grab a sandwich. The whole grain bread was the best I've had in Nicaragua! Menu didn't have many options, but I was happy with the choices!

A wide choice of hot and cold foods available from this canteen style restaurant. The rice and beef dish was very tasty. Great value food in a comfortable informal setting. You know it is going to be good when it is full of locals rather than tourists.

Tasty coffee, smoothies, and drinks! They have wifi and air conditioning, and it's a good place to hang out for a while. It was the only place open on Nicaragua's election day, so I had dinner there too. The paninis are just ok, but I was happy to find a place serving food!

This is a very nice coffee shop with indoor/outdoor seating. Indoors has AC. Of corse, there is free wifi. Very similar to Starbucks in atmosphere and pricing, and the coffee is better and offers some alcohol and daily specials. Stop by and enjoy a good cup of coffee.

I have been in several coffee shops around the world, and I realized that Seleccion is as good as or even better than many others coffee shops in the world. And do you know what's the best of all? You know the origin of your coffee. For sure they buy their coffee beans locally...
