This was my favorite restaurant for a good while until it closed in San Isidro. I was happy to find them in the mall La Rambla in San Borja when I was working in the convention center across the street. They have a varied menu, decent prices, and service is great!

This is a great place to sit and watch the world go by if you are staying in the area and have had to suffer the horror of a free breakfast at your hotel. Coffee is strong and good (slightly bitter, perhaps?) and it's reasonably priced when compared to the cafes up the side of Kennedy park. I only had... More

Good coffee, nice pastries. San Isidro has surprisingly few good coffee shops, but this is one of them!

Great coffee & food + friendly & attentive service and a prime people watching location that is sheltered just enough from the street to allow for ample relaxation.

This isn't the first time we I have been there with my family. The service has always been appalling and regarding food isn't that great, but my daughter loves the new branch deco. Today we had been there once for the 3rd time, were seated and 30 mins later no one took our order but others who came after us... More

Great staff with even better coffee. We didn't eat at News Coffee but a couple of tourists had the fresh sandwiches they offered and they looked great! Strong wifi. Prices are expensive for Peru- US$3 for a cappuccino- BUT it is fantastic coffee and the service is brilliant.

Gobsmackingly good coffee always. Vanilla cappuccino was beautiful, rich, strong coffee blend for only 9S. They have everything here from expressos, teas, hot chocolates, lattes and cold coffee delights. They have light snacks, sweets, cakes and Ice cream too. Well worth a visit, good coffee is so hard to find in South America! Take away available. Great, quick service. English... More

It is sometimes hard to find really good strong coffee in South American cities as the locals seem to prefer it heavily milked. Here at the News Cafe, the coffee is rich and strong. The service is friendly. The wifi connection is quick and steady. And even the sweets are good. Highly recommended to a quick caffeine charge!

We had lunch at this restaurant. The place was full of business people, always a good sign. Very nice restaurant with charming modern decor. They serve very good traditional Peruvian food. The food and service were very good. If you're in the area, it's worth it.
