My wife and I ate at Cafe de la Barra several times during the period December 22, 2016 through January 12, 2017. Cafe de la Barra is near Cerro San Lucia and also close to Monjitas Street. It is a small and unpretentious place that caters mostly to the locals. They do have English menus which was a big help... More

We decided to skip the spartan breakfast at our hotel and went out to this place instead. Hands down the best food we ate in Santiago. Granted it was only breakfast- and I hade the toast with smashed avocado and salt- and a great coffee and fresh OJ- but still- after so many food disappointments in Santiago it was refreshing...

First day in Santiago a bit jet lagged breakfast for hostel de la Barra is served at this small cafe next door. One English speaking waitress and we were sorted with toast and scrambled eggs great coffee and exquisite cherimoya juice. Great start for the day

We stopped for lunch at this cute place and were so happy we did -- the sandwiches and desserts were delicious, the service was friendly and attentive, and the price was right. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a very fancy lunch or as your only meal in Santiago, but it is definitely worthwhile for a mid-day break... More

To be honest, some times we make mistakes and when we do, people tend to write bad reviews more often because they were dissapointed. e really thank you for taking the time to write a good one. More

We want to Cafe de la Barra for brunch after arriving in Santiago let the night before. It is a relatively cheap and cheerful cafe, recommended by Lonely Planet. It is a good recommendation too.

I passed many times in front of this cafe without stoping till yesterday while I am very familiar with the Lastarria area. Yesterday, we finally stopped. Great atmosphere and deco. the chirimoya juice and the vienese coffee were great. The service was quite slow, it took approx. 10 minutes to be served.

The place is nice, has good music and good looking deserts. I had a 'cortado doble' but the coffee tasted really bad. They have also tea, but i didn't try it.
