I have eaten here quite a few times. The prices are high and the food is consistently tasty. The staff are friendly and speak English well. The service is somewhat slow. As of December of 2016, a page of the menu is dedicated to the ayahuasca diet. Comparing this menu to that of the Dawn on the Amazon (the other... More

The open doors and eclectic mix of art and furniture appeared quite inviting so stopped here for a quick lunch. The staff were polite but when my colleague went to take a photo of one of the pieces of art they became quite aggressive and rude. Service was good and the food was ok.

This cafe has a nice, varied menu of food and drinks, and nice art on the walls. The seats have lots of pillows for relaxing on, and bean bags on the floor invite even more relaxation.

Great cafe, good food & amazing artwork. So easy to find yourself spending the better part of a day hanging out here with the other wanderers that trickle in.

I love this place. It's relaxed even when it's busy. Great food - they have an Ayahuasca menu too. Friendly staff. Good varied menu. We hang out here a lot.

Located near the "malecon" is a nice spot for chilling and resting from Iquitos' heat. Lots of vegetarian/vegan options, I strongly recommend falafel hamburger with camu-camu juice! There are lots of options and the spot have comfortable sits if you even want to read or work a bit.

Even if you just have a juice or a salad, come check out the remarkable local art including Ayahuasca art (3-D) by Debernardi. The salads were delicious, the maracuya juice was a daily for me. I had breakfast here a couple times, plus dinner (fish) once. all excellent. A great place to chill out with people who seem to understand.... More

If you looking for American food like salads and sandwiches this is the place. They seem to cater to the folks on their restricted diets for the Ayahuasca trips.

The environment is great but the food is bland, scarce and expensive. The smoothies and juices are warm. You can easily find much better for those prices.
